Oven BBQ Pork Spare Ribs

These BBQ Pork Spare Ribs are baked in the oven, until tender and falling off the bone. This is the easiest way to make ribs, and they’re so delicious!

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 10 minutes
    •    Cook time: 2 hours & 45 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 6


    •    2 tsps kosher salt
    •    18 oz barbecue sauce
    •    4 to 5 lbs pork spare ribs (about 2 racks)


  1. Preheat oven to 300F.

  2. Season the ribs with the salt, concentrating most of the salt to the meaty side (and not the bony side).

  3. Slice in between the bones to cut the racks into individual ribs.

  4. Place the ribs on a rimmed half sheet pan, and pour 2/3 of the barbecue sauce on top (which should be about 1 cup of sauce). Toss the ribs well, until evenly coated with the sauce.

  5. Cover the ribs very tightly with foil, and cook for 1 hour and 45 minutes.

  6. Remove the foil and baste the ribs with half of the remaining barbecue sauce, about 1/3 cup. Increase the oven temp to 350F and bake uncovered for another 30 minutes.

  7. Baste the ribs with the remaining barbecue sauce and bake for another 20-30*** minutes, until the barbecue sauce is caramelized. They should no longer be saucy and wet, but sort of sticky and glazed. Enjoy!
