Plain Baby Back Ribs from the Oven

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Kayne

I tried to find a recipe that was not too complicated, This was the result. I started with a very basic recipe from "Cooking with Chef Doug", and added some extra spices to it. It was delicious. Since neither of us likes BBQ sauce, this recipe is ideal for us.

This recipe was really good. Ribs turned out to be tender and the flavor was excellent. I also used Sweet baby rays bbq sauce as well. I first had intended to bbq, but due to bad weather here I had to do oven ribs. This recipe is really good give it a try and you'll like it.
