Memphis Style Pork Ribs

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Battle in Seattle

One of three recipes--also try my Kansas City Ribs or Chinese Five-Spice Ribs. Nothing fancy, but folks will rave about these melt-in-your-mouth delites. These are a bit smoky tasting and very savory.

I use this rub for my pulled pork. I rub a pork loin the night before I'm going to cook it. Then slow roast it. People like it with bbq sauce. If doing that, I shred it and put it in the crock pot with the sauce. I prefer it without it. This has become my signature take along dish!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Mix rub ingredients together well.
  3. Lay the ribs on a rack in a foil-lined pan, and rub all of the spice mix evenly onto both sides of both rib racks.
  4. Bake meat-side up for 2 hours, or until each rack droops on both sides when picked up with tongs in the middle.
  5. Serve with favorite BBQ sauce, or dry. (I enjoy them both ways).
  6. HINT: Can bake ahead, especially if making for a crowd. To reheat, bake (meat side up) partially covered with foil for 30 minutes at 250 degrees F.
