Baby Back Ribs


"These are tender and the meat falls right off the bone. Generally, people think of baby back ribs as a meal they would only order when at a restaurant, but they are so easy to make at home. This recipe could not be any more simple."

  1. Tear off 4 pieces of aluminum foil big enough to enclose each portion of ribs. Spray each piece of foil with vegetable cooking spray. Brush the ribs liberally with barbeque sauce and place each portion in its own piece of foil. Wrap tightly and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  3. Bake ribs wrapped tightly in the foil at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 2 1/2 hours. Remove from foil and add more sauce, if desired.

These ribs really did fall off the bone and they were delicious!! However, I would change a couple things next time I make them. I followed the recipe as is, except I made my own bbq sauce. W...

If it falls off the bone, you just steamed all the texture and flavor out of them. Try using a dry rub instead of the sauce, cut the oven time back to a couple hours, low temp 250, then slowly g...

This basic recipe, or cooking method, when combined with the suggestions of others, allowed me to make the most delicious, and easiest ribs we've ever had! Here are my changes. I adapted the "D...

First an editorial comment: someone ripped this recipe because all it involved was a method to cook the ribs, while using common bottled dressing. I must disagree. There are a lot of ways to scr...

I've gotta start off by saying I was skeptical before I started with all of the claims saying the meat just fell off the bone. I thought about having ribs for dinner at 3:00 pm. So I defroste...

This method was excellent -- and inspired me to come up with something even better. At the minimum, you can follow this method as is, except lower the oven temperature to 225 degrees and bake f...

I'm a last minute recipe finder and didn't have but 30 minutes to prepare for cooking - so I didn't marinate these ribs in the sauce for more than 20 minutes and they were AMAZING - I did omit t...

Yes, these are great IF you add to it. First, definitely use a dry rub before cooking in the oven. I also add a slight amount of brown sugar to caramelize and add great color. Finally after r...

These ribs really got my guests' attention when they literally fell off the bone, as they were served! I ensured their tenderness by removing the tough, clear membrane from the underside of the...

Great recipe for 'winter' bbq. Clean-up was so incredibly easy! Before baking I rubbed 'Jim Goode's BBQ Beef Rub' (I find this recipe at Allrecipes too) on the ribs for an extra punch.
