Memphis Style Pork Ribs

"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."

Ready In:
2hrs 5mins
2 full rib racks




  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Mix rub ingredients together well.
  • 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.
  • Bake meat-side up for 2 hours, or until each rack droops on both sides when picked up with tongs in the middle.
  • Serve with favorite BBQ sauce, or dry. (I enjoy them both ways).
  • 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.

  1. 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!


<img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket> <br> <br>I'm a native Idahoan, but spent seven years in Kansas City before moving to Seattle five years ago. I work for a large international nonprofit in fundraising, but my true passion is cooking and baking. <br> <br>My dream in life would be to open my own delicatessen--I do not believe a sandwich to my standards can be found in Seattle. There are some good ones, but not the best. <br> <br>I am married to my best friend, Sean, who also acts as my personal sous chef in our kitchen. We have two cats, Jackson and T-Bone, and love to garden and play outside. We also love to trapse downtown to Pike Place Market and gather ingredients for a delicious meal. You can find anything there, but we especially love the fresh fish selection, of course the produce, the bread from Three Girl's Bakery, the sausages from Uli's, the cheeses from DiLaurenti's, and the hot donuts across the hall. YUM!
