Shhhhh, it's a secret recipe {Oven Pork Ribs Recipe}

These ribs are definitely one of my old standbys... I don't even know where the original recipe came from I've been making them so long but they have never let me down.... not once.

  • 4 lbs pork loin back ribs
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic 

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees f.
  • Mix together the sugar and spices to make the rub.
  • Apply rub to ribs on all sides
Lay ribs on two layers of foil, membrane side up and meaty side down.
Lay two layers of foil on top of ribs and roll and crimp edges tightly, edges facing up to seal.
Place on baking sheet and bake for 2 1/2 hours.
  • Remove from oven, they are ready to go when you are, leave foil sealed until serving. 
  • No other sauce needed in my family's opinion.


p.s. Sometimes I will make an extra rack or two and use the leftovers for a risotto later in the week. If you decide to do that de bone the ribs the first night and store in an airtight container in the liquid that will be in the foil to keep the meat moist and yummy until you use.
