Oven Baked Pork Ribs
Oven Baked Pork Ribs are a delicious and flavorful combination of pork ribs and barbecue sauce. The basting sauce is optional. If you have your own special homemade barbecue sauce, go ahead and used it. In this recipe we used hunts hickory brown sugar barbecue sauce. They are preferably done on a hot grill but can be baked in a conventional oven, as well. The secret to baking these ribs is a long bake while frequently applying several layers of sauce. This dish is perfect accompanied with a side dish such as potatoes, rice, or a fresh garden salad. My preferred drink with these ribs is a delightful glass of red wine or a cold beer. This dish will be a guaranteed hit for any occasion imaginable.
