These ribs always turn out great. Whether you like baby backs, spare ribs or country ribs you cannot go wrong with this method. The meat just falls off the bone every time! It is infallible! This recipe will also be giving away my prized BBQ Rib Rub- something I have kept to myself for quite a long while. But I figure, you guys would really appreciate it most, so I will share! I am also going to be sharing another of my Nana’s summer recipes – Nana’s Barbeque Sauce. So this is a two for one deal for all you summer-time grillers! Enjoy!
Nana’s BBQ Sauce:
1½ cup ketchup
1 TBS vinegar
1 TBS fresh lemon juice
1 TBS brown sugar
½ cup chopped onions
½ cup chopped green pepper
1 tsp garlic powder or 1 clove fresh garlic chopped
1 tsp salt
½ c water
Combine and cook all for ½ hour. Makes about 2½ cups sauce.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Package of your favorite kind of Ribs
Preheat oven to 300 F.
In a large baking dish, drizzle ribs with extra virgin olive oil. Liberally sprinkle equal parts of all of these spices on the ribs, turn ribs over and repeat. Now, time to get your hands dirty! Rub the dry rub into the flesh. At this point your meat should look rather red and delicious.
Bake ribs in the oven at 300 F for 3 hours. No more no less. After 3 hours your ribs are fully cooked. Now you want to get some color and caramelization on them. For that you either grill them quickly on both sides or set them under the broiler for a few minutes until they get a nice crust on them. But don’t forget to baste them with that nice home-made BBQ sauce you just made! Now they are perfect and delicious! Serve with Nana’s Potato Salad and Nana’s Baked Beans! Eat and enjoy!
