Oven Baked Barbecue Ribs – They’ll Fall Off the Bone!
When there’s a great meat sale on ribs, we snatch those puppies up as my family loves them. But, when it’s raining, or we just don’t have time to stand over the grill making sure they’re in the right spot with the right flame and temperature I love to make oven baked barbecue ribs. They’re so easy and they take just a little bit of time, most of which is hands off time where the first part is spent cooking on the stovetop and the second half is spent inside the oven.
They fall off the bone, too!
To make this recipe I used only a few tools. It’s important to note that I had our grocery stores butcher cut this rack in half so it would fit in my pot. If not you’ll want a big knife like this one – and don’t forget to use color coded cutting boards (these ones are popular) to avoid cross contamination. I don’t have one, but you may also want a brush to brush on your barbecue sauce. I know, I know, I really need one. Oh, and you need a pot. Any more ribs and I would have had to pull out the big daddy pot of them all. The 20 quart pot like this one only comes out on special occasions like when I am cooking for birthday parties or holidays.
Anyhow, on to how to make pork ribs in the oven . . . Drumroll please, you’re going to need to get a pen and paper for this one . . . just kidding, pin it here. 😉 Set your ribs in a pot of cold water covering the ribs and cook, boiling for one hour. Then bake for 325 degrees for one hour. Can this be it? Sure is! That’s how we do it around here and we love them – like I said, they fall right off the bone!
Cooking pork ribs in oven rather than grilling them is a great way to save time and still get your dinner done – great if you’re on the run, too.
