Adapted from Spend with Pennies. Spend with Pennies quoted, "The key to making these ribs melt-in-your-mouth-fall-off-the-bone tender is slow roasting them in the oven. I know many people boil their ribs.. I am very anti-boil… I just think it “waters down” the ribs and takes away the flavor! After the initial 2 hours, if your ribs aren’t quite tender enough, leave them a little longer… these babies need TIME!! Back ribs are the best you can get and, while they cost a couple of dollars more, they are totally worth the splurge!"

Directions

  1. Mix together Rib Rub ingredients.
  2. Remove the white membrane from the back side of the ribs (the side with less meat). It should pull off easily. Rinse ribs under cold water and blot dry with paper towels
  3. Massage Rib Rub into ribs. Place ribs on a foil lined tray and cover with sliced onion and garlic.
  4. Cover & seal with another piece of foil.
  5. Bake ribs at 275 for 2 hours.
  6. Open the corner and make sure they are tender. If not, bake another 20 minutes and check again.
  7. Meanwhile, combine Rib BBQ Sauce ingredients together.
  8. Remove ribs and discard juices, onions & garlic. Brush ribs with olive oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper OR brush generously with BBQ sauce.
  9. Grill 5-10 minutes or until lightly charred.
