Oven Baked Ribs

How To Cook Ribs in the Oven

  1. Remove the membrane (remember, this ensures fall-off-the-bone ribs).
  2. Generously season both sides with salt and pepper. This is also a great opportunity for adding more flavor with your favorite spice rub.
  3. Cover the ribs with aluminum foil. 
  4. Bake the ribs at a low temperature (275F) for 3 to 4 hours or until they are tender.
  5. Top the baked ribs with barbecue sauce then broil (or grill) the ribs for a few minutes until the sauce is caramelized.
