****Last night I made ribs and home made mac and cheese. I am posting both of the recipes here today, but separately. I got this recipe called Marie’s I Want More Ribs from Just a Pinch website. It is truly a super easy way to make ribs in the oven. Since I don’t and as far as I know can’t have a grill where we live, these are the next best thing!****
4 pounds pork ribs
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp. Smokehouse Maple (Grillmates by Mc Cormick)
1 tsp. Mesquite (Grillmates by Mc Cormick)
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 TBS. garlic powder
2 cups of barbecue sauce (use your favorite brand, I use Sweet Baby Ray’s)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Peel off the tough membrane that covers the boney side of the ribs.
Mix together the sugar and spices to make the rub. Apply rub to ribs on all sides, being sure to get it in every nook and cranny.
Lay ribs on two layers of foil, shiny side out and meaty side of the ribs down. Lay two layers of foil on top of ribs and roll and crimp edges tightly, edges facing up to seal.
Place on baking sheet and bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until meat is starting to shrink away from the ends of the bone. Remove from oven.
Heat broiler. Cut ribs into serving size portions, usually 2-3 ribs each. Arrange ribs on broiler pan, bony side up. Brush on sauce.
Broil for 1-2 minutes until sauce is cooked and bubbly. Turn ribs over. Repeat on other side.
***I normally do not suggest that you buy name brand seasonings because they are so expensive, however, in this case it is totally worth it! Mc Mormick has a line of grill mates that are truly fantastic! I use them on a lot of things. I have made this exact recipe 3 times now and it comes out amazing every single time!***
