Baked Barbecue Ribs
I took my kids to the grocery store after I picked them up from school to pick up some things for dinner. I planned on making barbecue chicken breasts but they both saw the ribs and asked me to make barbecue ribs instead. I seasoned them simply then wrapped them in foil and baked them for an hour. I unwrapped the ribs then slathered them in barbecue sauce and put them back in the oven to bake for another hour. The ribs turned out tender and so flavorful. We all enjoyed them – especially my husband who took the leftovers to work today. I served these ribs with the Roasted Asparagus with Garlicky Italian Panko and a spinach side dish that will post tomorrow.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil (for easier clean up).
Remove the silverskin membrane from the back of the ribs. See how to do it here. Spread the minced garlic evenly over both sides of the ribs. Season, to taste, with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika evenly over both sides of the ribs. Place the seasoned ribs on a large piece of foil then top with another piece of foil and roll all of the edges to make a sealed packet. Place on the baking sheet and into the oven and bake for 1 hour.
Carefully, open the tin foil packed ribs then slather with your favorite barbecue sauce. Place back into the oven, unwrapped, for another hour. Remove from the oven and place on a cutting board. Let them rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing them and serving. Enjoy.
