These Easy Oven-Baked Ribs are one of the easiest recipes ever. Cooked low and slow, which makes them so flavorful and fall off the bone tender.
Spring is fast approaching, and I can smell the barbecues already. But being that it is currently wet and cold out, making these Easy Oven-Baked Ribs from my warm and cozy kitchen will have to do for now.
These pork ribs cook low and slow. They turn out so juicy and are just fall off the bone tender.
Why should I remove the membrane?
Removing the membrane helps all the yummy dry rub get through to both sides of the ribs. Which in return makes the ribs as tender and flavorful as possible. Here is a great link to show you exactly how to do it.
Best sides to go with these baked ribs
- Deviled Egg Macaroni Salad

Piling on your favorite bbq sauce and broiling them at the end for a couple of minutes allows them to caramelize. By the time these are done cooking your house will smell amazing and your tummy will be growling.
If you love ribs as much as my family does, then you are sure to make these over and over.

BEST ribs ever...I have been making ribs this way for a couple years now and they are by far the very best!!!
Great recipe. I made baby back ribs as is except I substituted Stevia for the brown sugar since my husband is diabetic and used sugar-free bbq sauce. Delicious and the cook time was spot on. Love your recipes and that you add the WW pts. Thank you!
This was the 1st time I made ribs in the oven. Followed the recipe exactly and they turned out excellent!
The recipe is fantastic and simple, thank you for posting it.
To make a simple bbq sauce is simple
- one cup of ketchup,
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- five table spoons of prepared mustard
- one table spoon of soya sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon cayanne pepper.
BBQ on a hot grill for 10 min.. then let rest for 10 min
Yes, you can bake them ahead of time and either broil them or grill them to get that char before serving. I always use Kinder's bbq sauce.
The ribs look amazing! Can’t wait to try them! Am planning to make them for my twins birthday party, however can I baked them in advance and finish them before being served? What steps should I follow? What barbecue sauce did you use? Thank you!!!!!
