Oven Baked Pork Ribs

Dana Beavers


This pork rib recipe is excellent. It was so easy and if you follow any of my recipes I am all about easy! If you want that smokey flavor, make sure and add your liquid smoke mixture before your dry rub because I missed that step one time and the ribs were still great, I like mine with a little smokey flavor.

How to Make Oven Baked Pork Ribs


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Ribs will cook for a total time of 4 hours.
  2. If you want that smokey flavor,before you put on this rub, take about a teaspoon of liquid smoke and mix that with a tablespoon of water. Brush that on both sides of the ribs, then apply the dry rub.
  3. Combine all of the dry rub ingredients in a small bowl.
  4. Prepare the rack by removing the membrane from the back of the ribs and cutting away that extra little flap of tough meat across the top – just discard that or save for another use.
  5. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.
  6. On the bottom side of the ribs, sprinkle on a generous amount of the dry rub and rub it in.
  7. Set the ribs on the baking pan with the seasoned side down, and apply the remaining dry rub on the top side.
  8. Roast uncovered at 250 degrees F for 2 hours.
  9. After the ribs have cooked for 2 hours, remove them and pour some of the sauce over the top of the ribs. This was the one I used and it was great!
  10. Using a brush, gently spread the sauce all over the ribs.
  11. Cover the entire pan tightly with aluminum foil and return to the oven, baking for an additional 2 hours, or until the meat begins to pull away from the bone.
  12. If you like, unwrap, brush with a bit of sauce and finish under the broiler for a minute or so.
  13. When ready to serve, brush a little extra sauce on each serving but definitely serve with a side of sauce for dipping.
