These oven baked bbq pasture-raised ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender and delicious, and they don’t take more than 5 minutes of prep time. (If you follow me on Instagram, check out my story highlights if you want to watch me making them.l!) The great thing about these too is that you can cook them in advance, and then just do the last half hour of baking right before you want to serve them.
I typically don’t recommend baking with foil and try to avoid it for the most part. It’s not the healthiest option (the aluminum can leach into your food), but I’m not perfect and I do use foil for these. It’s just SO easy and turns out SO delicious. Sometimes, you do what you gotta do. I don’t give measurements in this recipe, because you just really don’t need them. You’ll see what I mean
Baby back Ribs
Salt, pepper, and paprika
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Season both sides of the ribs with sea salt, pepper, and paprika and double or triple wrap them in foil. Then, bake on a baking sheet in the oven at 250 for 2.5 hours. (That’s the part you can do in advance if you need to and save the last half hour of baking for right before you want to serve.) Remove from the oven and uncover the top of the foil. Increase oven temp to 350. Spread about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of bbq sauce on top of each rack of ribs and return to the oven at 350, uncovered, for an additional half hour of baking to get a nice bbq glaze.
