The secret to making these ribs is a long bake while frequently applying several layers of sauce. They are perfect accompanied by 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.

- Peel the membrane off of the ribs using a paper towel (See our cooking video).
- In a bowl, combine the salt, pepper, sugar, garlic powder, and chili powder.
- Rub the pork ribs with the mixture on both sides. Allow them to sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes until the meat begins to sweat.
- Place aluminum foil in the bottom of a baking tray. Place the meat in rib side up. Cover them with aluminum foil and fold the foil so they are well sealed.
- Place the ribs in a preheated oven set at 250 degrees and bake them for at least 2 hours.
- After 2 hours, drain the juices; baste ribs with your preferred barbecue sauce on both sides.
- Place the ribs back in oven, uncovered, with the meat side up (the side not showing the bones). Continue to bake them at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Repeat the procedure until you reach the desired layers of sauce. I do this approximately 3 – 4 times.
- Remove the baked ribs and slice them into serving pieces. Enjoy your oven baked ribs!
