I'm usually not a huge ribs fan, however, when I saw this recipe it peaked my interest and I decided to tweak it a bit to my liking and give it a try.
This recipie is super easy and all you need are a few ingredients for the rub (most of which you probably already have in your pantry).
Enough talking, lets get started.
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 pounds of pork (or beef ribs)
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon of onion powder
- 1 tablepoon of soul seasoning (or whatever cajun like seasoning you prefer)
- 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon of parika
- Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce
Wash and pat ribs dry. In a small bowl combine all your dry ingredients then whisk gently to incorporate. Next, coat ribs in olive oil and apply the dry rub. Gently massage the rub into the ribs ensuring seasoning is spread throughout.
Once complete place ribs in a zip lock bag to marinate for up to an hour. If you're more like me, then you never have time to marinate--jump right into baking. Place ribs in a glass baking dish lined with foil and create a foil packet that seals the ribs inside (this will allow the ribs to fall off the bone!)
Once ribs are sealed place in oven on 290 degrees. These babeies are going to bake slow. Bake for 2 hours and check for doneness. Once ribs are tender to the touch, remove foil and drain off any fat in dish and brush ribs with desired amount of bbq sauce. Place ribs back in the oven and turn the temparture to broil. This will allow the ribs to get nice and crisp on top and the sauce will stick to the meat. Keep a close eye on the ribs as this should take about 5 mintues.
Once complete, serve with some mash potatoes or a nice potato salad!
