Super Simple Saucy Ribs

  • Hello everyone! I am back from a long stretch of being out of town and am excited to be back and cooking. I have not had too much time at home yet to plot out amazing recipes and complicated ingredients, but I was able to catch a rerun of the Martha show at the gym last week and saw this easy recipe for ribs. Most recipes for BBQ are long and have so many steps your head spins around, which can be intimidating. I have tried these recipes and while they are amazing, they are for those that have lots of extra time and patience on hand. I have not had either this week. I served the ribs with steamed artichokes and a Caprese salad (heirloom tomatoes chopped, diced fresh mozzarella, chopped basil, slivered red onions, drizzle with olive oil, balsamic, salt and pepper), which are not traditional BBQ fare, but I thought I would class the place up a bit.

  • EJ's Simple Oven-Barbecue Ribs
  • adapted from 2010
  • 4 servings

  • 2 racks baby back ribs
  • 6 tablespoons Emeril's Rib Rub spice blend (I used my own: 2 tbls sugar, 3 tbls salt, 1 tbls pepper, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp smoked paprika, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tea onion powder, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp celery salt; you could use any variety of rib rub as well)
  • Emeril's Bam! B-Q Original Sweet Barbecue Sauce or other favorite barbecue sauce (I used the Bone Suckin' Sauce brand)
  • Preheat oven 300 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil large enough to cover the pan twice. Line the aluminum foil with an equal sized piece of parchment paper. (You will be folding this over the ribs and sealing it.) Place ribs, meat side up, in an even layer on prepared baking sheet; set aside. Divide seasoning evenly between both slabs of ribs, coating well on each side. Fold the extra length of parchment paper-lined aluminum foil over ribs and seal tightly on all sides. Transfer baking sheet to oven and bake until ribs are very tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Remove baking sheet from oven. Peel back parchment paper-lined foil so that ribs are exposed. Using a basting brush or the back of a spoon, coat meat side of ribs lightly with barbecue sauce. Return ribs to oven, and bake, uncovered, until sauce is thickened and lightly browned, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove ribs from oven and let cool briefly. Cut between each rib and serve with additional barbecue sauce, if desired.

  • Enjoy!
