Delicious pork spare ribs baked in the oven

I have been looking at sales flyers from the local grocery stores to find the best deals.  One of them had pork ribs on sale for $1.99/lb.

Here is my tried and true recipe for great ribs in your oven! This is so simple and the ribs come out juicy, moist and falling off of the bone!

BBQ Pork Spareribs
  • 1 rack of ribs (4-5 lbs), trim off excess fat
  • 4-5 TB dry rub of your choice (I like Stubbs Rub for all meats Use a dry rub that is pretty low in sugar so that it does not burn.  Prepared rubs will list ingredients in order, from the highest amount to lowest.
  • 1 cup prepared or homemade BBQ sauce 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

Remove the thin membrane from the bottom of the ribs (grab it with a paper towel, this works really well). The membrane is really chewy and not very pleasant to eat. Here is a link to a video of removing the membrane

Rub both sides of the ribs with the dry rub and place bone side down on a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil (this will help immensely with cleanup!)

Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.

Remove ribs, cover with foil and return to oven.
Reduce heat to 325 F.  Bake covered for 1 hour.

Remove ribs and brush on 1/2 of the BBQ sauce. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, basting with the rest of the sauce after 15 minutes. Yummy!

The finished ribs are juicy and moist. I suggest serving them with macaroni salad, delicious!
