cuban baked ribs

Recipe by

I had baby back ribs in the freezer but wasn't motivated to smoke them so I got creative. We love Cuban pork roast so I decided how bad could ribs be. Turns out they're great! My husband couldn't stop eating them, he shoved his baked potato aside and said use it for hash browns at breakfast, I'm eating ribs!

How To Make cuban baked ribs

  • 1
    NOTE - I think this recipe would be perfect in the slow cooker. Tonight was the first time I made it and I did it in the oven but there's no reason you couldn't use the crockpot. I'd do it on low for 8 hours.
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  • 3
    Cut ribs apart, 2 bones per piece
  • 4
    Place in a baking pan or casserole dish.
  • 5
    Pour the mojo sauce over and top with the onion and salt and pepper.
  • 6
    Cover tightly with foil and bake until tender, about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. There will be a lot of cooking juices, be careful!
