How To Roast Baby Back Ribs In The Oven
Step #1: Rub the rib rack with your favorite rub.
Step #2: Place a couple of cold butter chunks on top.
Butter makes ribs better. They add flavor. Trust us on this.
Step #3: Cover in foil.
The foil will help distribute heat evenly and keep them juicy and awesome.
Step #4: Preheat oven to 350F.
Slow and low is the way to go. That said, this recipe is for those who want to be practical and have those ribs today!
Step #5: Cook for 2.5 hours.
Step #6: Uncover rack.
We added some of our FANTASTIC Japanese BBQ sauce on this step.
Step #7: Turn oven up to 400F and cook for another 10-15 minutes (until browned).
This is going to help the sauce caramelize and give the ribs that delicious finish.
Step #9: Rest for 10 min.
Let the juices sink in. 10 minutes is enough.
Step #10: Cut and serve!
You actually do not want "fall of the bone ribs." If ribs fall of the bone, all you did was overcook the ribs. Ribs should just pull of the bone to make them an easy eat. If they do not, then they are under-cooked. Basically, your ribs should have a little chew to it!
