During the summer I am all about easy meals. While I really do love cooking, when the sun is shining and the fresh air beckons me I want meals that take very little hands on time in the kitchen. This does use the oven so if it’s super hot where you live you may want to hold off on making these for a bit.
The two to three hours these ribs spend in a low oven ensures tender, fall-off-the-bones meat while the short high heat cooking creates slightly crisp edges from the sugar in the sauce caramelizing.
Oh and in case you’re wondering I have no clue if these were pork or beef ribs. The package just said country style ribs.
Oven Barbecued Ribs
Tender ribs that are very easy to prepare.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 2 hours and 20 minutes
Total time: 2 hours and 35 minutes
- 4 pounds country style ribs
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
Preheat oven to 300 degree. Mix together the garlic salt, black pepper, and onion powder. Place a large sheet of foil on a rimmed baking sheet. Season both sides of the ribs with the seasoning mix.
Place the seasoned ribs on foil and wrap foil around the ribs making a pouch.
Bake at 300 degrees for 2 hours or until ribs are tender. When ribs are tender increase oven temperature to 425 degrees.
Remove ribs from oven and coat with barbecue sauce. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Serve with extra sauce and plenty of napkins.
