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.

    I’ve never made my own ribs because it seemed like it was a hard process, but this is so easy! Totally making them this weekend :)

    Oh man, I haven’t had homemade ribs in forever. But that will change very, very soon. Plus, Jason is coming into town for a week for spring break so this is definitely a must!

    Yum! I have never made ribs because I just thought that for some reason they would take too long and be too complicated, but this I could totally do. Thanks!

    My husband makes ribs on the grill but every once in a while we like cooking them in the oven. This is one of my family’s favorites!

    BBQ ribs are always a huge hit! I don’t wrap mine; I just put them tightly in a baking dish and cover them well. Sometimes it’s nice when the kids pick out something a little different for dinner, isn’t it?

    these ribs were great!! and so easy to prepare!! I’ve made ribs in the oven before and it always took a long time to bake!! I will definitely make these again and again!! my family loved them! thank you for allowing us to have ribs any time!!
    I originally baked them and then had to leave them in the refrigerator for a couple of days before we were able to eat them and I think that really intensified the flavor of the BBQ sauce and the ribs! SOOOO GOOOD!! YUM!

    You got to try this recipe, it’s the easiest and most delicious one ever!!! My husband loves the ribs, but I just don’t like to make it, because all the recipes I’ve tried are all taking so much time for preparation and cooking. This turns out easy and yummy!!!

    Ribs in the oven as I type. If they taste as good as they smell I’m in trouble.
