I love good ribs!

Top Review by teresas

Both hubby and I had high hopes for this recipe...we love garlic and ribs...but it just didn't work out as well as we thought it would...the meat was tender and it did fall off the bone...but the flavor wasn't did have a smoky taste what with the smoked paprika and the liquid smoke...but it lacked other flavors that would have tied it all together...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take 1 rack of baby back ribs and trim all visible fat. Then, season with salt and pepper and place on a 2-foot long piece of aluminum foil on a baking sheet.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the paprika, liquid smoke, ketchup and red wine vinegar.
  3. Pour sauce over ribs and turn to coat completely. Scatter onions and garlic over the top. Place the foil over the ribs so it’s tightly sealed. Place on the grill for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Or, to enjoy all year round, place in the oven at 425°F for 1/2 hour and then lower to 275°F for another hour, until meat is tender.
