Summer means ribs, corn, and more ribs! I love them best charred on the grill. Unfortunately, I do not have a balcony or patio or anywhere I can have a grill, so I must make do with my over. This method is super simple and creates moist and tender ribs. Even when I do have a grill, I pre-bake the ribs to speed up the cooking.
Last evening, I was extremely lazy and didn't even make my own rub. I used a premixed seasoning from the Spice House called Milwaukee Iron Seasoning. It has assorted chile peppers, salt, garlic, coriander, cumin, cayenne, onion, and parsley. It was more than a bit too hot when I tasted the seasoning alone, so I mixed 1 tbs of the seasoning with 1 tablespoon of sugar, and a teaspoon of salt. I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce.
1-2 lbs pork or beef ribs
2 tbs of your favorite rub
1-2 c of your favorite bbq sauce
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Liberally rub ribs with seasoning. Place on a rack so the fat drains off while cooking.
3. Cover tightly with foil. Cook 60 minutes or until ribs are tender.
4. Remove cover and lather with sauce.
5. Broil for 10 minutes or so until desired degree of charring occurs. (If you don't like charring, just broil until sauce is absorbed a bit, maybe 5-7 minutes).
