Easy Pork Rib Recipe

Pork Ribs
Pork Ribs | Source


There are so many fabulous rib recipes right here on HubPages, and everyone has their own way of making pork ribs. I remember my Dad used to take great pride in his ribs and always insisted that they must first be boiled. For many years I would boil them until one day I was a little short on time and decided to skip the boiling process. I found that they tasted great, the meat fell off the bones just as if I'd boiled them, and that is when I stopped using Dad's technique.

BBQ Ribs All Year Round


My family loves ribs, and we eat them all year round. In the colder winter months it is hard to stand outside by the BBQ, so I cook my ribs in the oven. We find that they taste just the same as if they were cooked outside.

Cook time: 2 hours 12 min
Ready in: 2 hours 22 min
Yields: 4-6 people

  • 7-8 pounds of back or side pork ribs
  • 1 TBSP. of garlic powder
  • 1/4 TSP. of freshly ground pepper

How To Prepare The Ribs

Making A Rub

  • 1 TBSP Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 TSP Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1/4 TSP Slap Ya Mama Cajun Spice

Mix these 3 ingredients together in a bowl and rub onto the ribs.


Into The Oven They Go

  • Preheat oven to 280°F - 300°F
  • Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil and lay the ribs fat side up.

Your photo is making me drool...I will be right back. I need to thaw out some ribs! Thanks for sharing your recipe. Like your dad, I was use to boiling them till my brother showed me his method. Since then, I have been working on tweeking them to my family's taste. What style of rib do you use?

Thanks again! Voted up!

Dave, There is a huge bone wastage when it comes to ribs. I only buy them when there is a good sale, and stock my freezer up with them. With the cost of meat rising I may have to become a vegetarian.

Susan: Thank you this is a great recipe. I love ribs, but I must say, I find it difficult to part with my hard earned money for a taste of heaven, knowing that the most of my money is in the bones which will end up in the garbage.

As a pensioner, I can ill afford to be spending my pension money on bones that will end up in the garbage. It's to bad that we haven't discovered a way to use the bones too in some sort of tasty recipe.

@susan: Sure thing, I will do a hub one day, in the meantime, I will send you an email. I don't really use any set recipes though. I've actually become of big fan of ribs in the oven; so much easier, faster and tastes just as good.

Ruby, If your local stores do not carry this spice you can request it to be brought in or you can check at this site to see where you can buy it in your state http://www.slapyamama.com/locator.php or at amazon.

Fat side up :) When cooking a pork roast fat side up and score the fat.

The Saddle loves his pork ribs, I know where to come when I'm ready to make my next batch. I have bookmarked this hub for future reference. Love the name " Slap your Mama" heck if I did that she would have given me such a smack I would have flipped over backwards. LoL....cute name though...

Slap Ya Mama is a funny name for a seasoning or for anything type of food product for that matter. But I understood how you meant what you said. Thanks Frank...get cooking!

Jennifer, It's a great spice. I have a hub all about Slap Ya Mama. There are various different spices that they sell. I was first introduced to it by my father in law in Florida a few years back and it's always in my spice cabinet now.

Arlene, Hope that your gout gets better and thank you.

RH, Thanks

rjsadowski, My Dad always insisted on boiling them before bbqing or doing them in the oven. Skipping the boiling part saves so much time and they taste better to me. Thank you.

I bookmarked this and hope my gout medication will "cover" me. If I end up crawling around the house in pain, I figure it will be worth it. Voted up and everything else.

Wayne, Slap Ya Mama is a such a great spice. I love all their products. Thanks for everything!

drbj, Thank you.

cooldad, Smoked ribs, would you like to trade?

Tina, It's basically a Cajun Spice. You can use any type of spice that you like.

I would love to taste pork ribs seasoned your way! They look so tasty! But I wonder what "Slap Your Mama Cajun spice" consists of? I can not imagine that I will ever found it here... Can I do something similar myself or must I continue to watch this photo drooling:)

Great recipe Susan,

Tina

Great hub, I just so happen to be smoking ribs today. I love cooking ribs and usually I smoke them all day while watching football. In the interest of time, I've also cooked them in the oven before with great results. Your recipe is right on and will taste great.

Yummy, Susan. Thanks for sharing this recipe which seems to be finger-lickin' good. Like Wayne, I was tempted to take a bite out of the photo.
