Oven Baked BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Do you love ribs, but want another method to cook them, rather than standing out at the grill in the middle of winter? Well, look no further! Here is my personal recipe for oven baked baby back ribs. They are so delicious, and the meat is extremely tender once they are done.

Here is my “before” shot, right before they went into the oven:


I am going to be honest and tell you that I normally hate oven-baked meats … they always seem to come out dry and chewy instead of moist and flavorful. I am also going to be honest and tell you that I stole my method of cooking from watching Master Chef.  Ha!  I took bits and pieces that I learned about how to cook a rack of lamb, and applied them to my ribs. It worked like a charm! Woo hoo!

Here is the after shot:

While they may look burnt, they aren’t. It is just the BBQ sauce that caramelized, and it was soooo tasty! I probably should have moved them over to a platter to get a better foodie-styled photo, but I was in a hurry so I wanted to at least get a quick photo. Ignore the tin foil under the rack.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret; what makes these ribs so tender is the low & slow roast, but also the dijon mustard that I put in my basting sauce. The vinegar in the mustard helps break down the muscle and makes it soft and tender. Yum!

Now for the fun stuff …. the recipe! Let me know if you try it.

Until next time,
