Mouth Watering Pork Rib Recipe
Pork Ribs-A Family Favorite Meal
For years I would always boil pork ribs before doing anything with them. Then one day I decided to skip the boiling process all together and see how they'd turn out. My family now raves about my ribs, and they insist that they are better than Montana's Cookhouse.
The following recipe can be made in your oven or on your barbecue grill. I guarantee the meat will fall off the bones if you follow all the steps below.
With the ribs I served steamed green beans, along with a Caesar Salad..

This recipe will feed how many?
When I say that this recipe will feed 4 people please keep in mind that 3 of these people are grown men with hearty appetites.
- 4 -5 pounds of pork side or back ribs
- Spices that you like or a spice rub (I used garlic powder and Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning)
- Your favorite BBQ sauce (I used a honey garlic sauce)
- 1/4 cup of water
- Preheat your oven to 280 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Line a large roasting pan with aluminum foil. (This will make clean up much easier)
- Place each rack of ribs into the bottom of the pan.
- Season the ribs and add 1/4 cup of water to the bottom of the roasting pan.
- Cover the roasting pan with aluminum foil.
- Place the ribs into the oven on the middle rack.
- Cook for 2 hours.
- Remove the ribs from the oven and place onto a broiler pan.
- Turn your oven on to broil, and place the oven rack on the second level from the top.
- Slather the ribs in BBQ sauce making sure to completely cover them.
- Pop them under the broiler for ten minutes.
- Serve and Enjoy!
BBQ sauce, spices and kitchen tools I used to make this recipe.
When I'm not in a hurry I will make my own BBQ sauce, but I find the store bought ones can be quite tasty. If you've never used Slap Ya Mama seasoning spice I highly recommend it. It's a favorite spice of mine. I find the silicone basting brushes easy to clean and long lasting. Tongs are a handy tool for this recipe for removing the ribs off of the broiling pan. I use mine for salads too.

Roasting and Broiler Pans
This is the perfect roaster for making this rib recipe. You can easily stack the racks of ribs on top of each other if you're feeding a crowd.
