We went shopping last night for ingredients for our Father's Day dinner. While we originally headed out looking for steaks, we decided to try some babyback pork ribs that were on sale.
I've never made ribs before, so I was a little tentative at first, but we were thrilled at just how easy these were, and how great they tasted. They've been added to our list of easy (and impressive) Sunday-cook-while-we-are-at-church recipes. We also loved that this meal only cost about $8.00 compared to the $25+ steaks.
1 rack babyback pork ribs
1 bottle barbecue sauce (we like hickory flavor)
Line a baking dish/pan with aluminum foil. Cut rib rack in half and fit into baking dish, bone side down.
Pour 3/4 bottle barbecue sauce over ribs and cover with foil, sealing tightly.
Heat oven to 300* and bake for approximately 5 hours or until meat reaches 170* F.
Remove from oven and using a spoon, baste with the juices and sauces which have run onto the sides prior to serving.
