READY IN: 1hr 5mins

This is a different way to do baby back ribs, theres no sauce and their roasted in the oven. They turn out just a little crisp but really tender.This amount makes about 1/4 cup, I quadruple the spices so I can have some in a spice jar ready to go for next time.These are Great!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12-3 lbs baby back rib racks
  • 2 tablespoons cracked peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon dried sage
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seed
  • salt, to taste after their done (So just remember 2 parts Peppercorns, 1 part Sage leaves and 1 part Fennel seeds, if you want to mak)


  1. Rinse ribs, sprinkle all over with the spice mixture and pat spices into ribs.
  2. Set ribs cupped side down on a rack in a pan. Bake at 450 for 30 minute.
  3. Turn curved side up and bake 10 minutes more, if drippings in pan start to smoke you can add a little water to the pan.
  4. Turn ribs over again and bake another 10 to 15 min until ribs are sizzling and well browned.
  5. Remove from oven and cut ribs apart and sprinkle with salt to your taste.
