Sarah's sticky ribs

I LOVE ribs so I taught myself how to make them just the way I like to eat them...nice crust on outside, moist on inside and a little sweet with some spice. These are fall off the bone tasty (and messy..have napkins ready)


For rub:
1 c brown sugar
1 tbs kosher salt
1 tbs black pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper

For ribs:
1 slab of pork baby back ribs
BBQ sauce of choice (I love the Trader Joes Kansas City style)

Preheat oven to 400. Line baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray (don't forget this part...if you don't line the pan you will be cursing at yourself later when its time to clean up)

Prior to putting rub on ribs you must remove thin membrane from bone side of ribs. This is the key to the best ribs ever. I learned it from some BBQ cook off on TV...hahaha. Starting at one end of ribs (bone side up) slide a butter knife just under the membrane. Its really thin, like tissue paper. Grasp it with a piece of paper towel and pull it off length of ribs.

If you need help here is a video. Warning: Its pretty cheezy.

Combine rub ingredients in small bowl and mix well. Rub all over both sides of ribs.

Place ribs on lined baking sheet and place in 400 degree oven. Cook for 1 hour. Turn over ribs after 30min.

After 1st hour, turn heat down to 250 degrees and cook for 2 more hours. Flip over every hour.

Baste with BBQ sauce last 30 min on both sides.

Remove from oven and let stand for 10 min. Cut ribs between bones with sharp knife to separate.

Awsome and husband approved
