One thing that my family and I enjoy, is barbeque, especially ribs. However, the weather is chilly, and we don’t feel like pulling out the grill all the time. An easy and fast alternative is oven baked ribs! For me, I’m busy like every day all day. I don’t have time to slave over a stove, so I’m looking to make healthy and tasty foods in a quarter of the time I hear others cooking.
These ribs have so much flavor packed in because I make my own rub. I don’t know what it is about rubs, but it’s better than seasoning your meat from above!
First, line your pan with aluminum foil. This helps make cleanup a breeze.
The ingredients are simple. Get out your brown sugar, black pepper, onion salt (I love it, but regular salt is fine), paprika, basil, and an onion.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. I used about a cup of brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of black pepper, 1 heaping teaspoon of paprika, ½ teaspoon of basil, and ½ teaspoon of onion salt.
Mix everything up well. I usually use my ChefLand Mixing Bowls for this type of stuff. If you’re going to make this often, just make a large batch and store the rest in an emptied season container.
Line your pan with sliced onions. You’ll place your ribs on top of them. This helps flavor the ribs and keep them from boiling in the rib juices.
Rub this mixture on your ribs (I used boneless country ribs). Line your ribs in the pan over the onions.
Cover your ribs with the foil. I made it like a pocket.
Throw it in the preheated oven, to 450 degrees for about 1 ½ hours.
Once the ribs are pretty much done, throw your favorite sauce on it. I used good old Sweet Baby Rays. Place it back in the oven for 15 minutes so the sauce can really sink in.
Once you take it out, you have some of the tastiest and tender ribs, ever! Pair it up with green beans and mashed potatoes.
