Foodie Friday - Baby Back Ribs


I'm thinking about making Fridays all about food.  What do you think?  Cooking and baking are my other passions and I do alot of it so I thought maybe I might have a recipe or two you may not have seen or a technique you may not know....yet.

These are the juiciest, easiest ribs you will ever cook.  The best part, once the prep is done, so are you.

We usually buy our ribs in bulk at Sam's Club as they're more affordable.  They come 3 full racks to a package.  What's great is that we can cook, freeze and simply pop them on the grill for a quick meal for ourselves, friends or if someone needs a meal.

Here are the details:  The recipe stays the same no matter the quantity.

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees.  Line baking trays with aluminum foil.

Trim ribs of any extra fat and pull of the membrane on the back side of the racks.  Cut the racks in two.  If desired, you may put a dry rub on them (we always do!)  I have a super recipe for one if you'd like it.

After rubbing, place the ribs on the baking trays.  Bake at 275 degrees for 3 hours. 

                                 

Ribs will be super tender and clean up is a breeze...just throw the foil away!

Ribs may be eaten as is or thrown on the grill for a few minutes  and slathered with your favorite BBQ sauce.

Any extra ribs may be cooled, wrapped tightly and frozen.  To serve, thaw in the refrigerator, grill until hot (about 10-15 minutes)

That's it!  Easy, peasy and oh, so good!!



Pin It!
