A simple, no hassle, no mess and delicious method for "falling off the bone" pork ribs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Cut pork ribs into sections of 3 or 4 bones.
  3. Mix remaining ingredients well, sprinkle on both sides of ribs and rub into the meat.
  4. Seal rib sections in foil with a tablespoon of water in each package, and bake for 2 hours on a cookie sheet in the center of the oven.
  5. Open foil carefully as steam escapes.
  6. Can be crisped on a hot BBQ if desired but will be great just the way it is.
  7. (Enjoy with oven cooked potato nuggets for a really simple meal).

This was superb! I didn't have the mustard, but I don't think I missed it! I made one rack and still used the seasonings for the 4 racks. It was amazing! I put about a Tlbs of Stubbs BBQ on top so it would be more "like eating at home with my family" feeling. They were better than my mothers! My girlfriend said they were great, and she isn't the biggest fan of anything with "flavor," so another 5 star review!

I've used the The Rub several times for crockpot ribs. Reduced pepper flakes to 1/2 tsp. Increased paprika to 3/4 tsp. Roll ribs in spices, put in crockpot with large slice of onion and 1/4 cup of water. Cook on low 8-10 hours. Baste with barbecue sauce and bake at 350 deg. for 10 minutes. Awesome!! Getting lots of complements from my family. Thanks Dug!

These tasted great. This recipe is a keeper and will use it again. Every easy to fix. It was too cold to grill outside so I just opened the foil packets and put barbecue sauce on the ribs and baked for another 15 minutes.
