Oven Baked Ribs

These Oven-Baked Ribs are fall-off-the-bone-tender, incredibly flavorful, and take a quick 5 minutes to prep! They're made with baby back ribs, smothered in a homemade spice rub, and slathered with BBQ sauce.


Gather your Ingredients

– 3-4 pounds baby back ribs (membrane removed) – 3 tablespoons brown sugar – 3 teaspoons chili powder – 2 teaspoons seasoning salt – 1 teaspoon garlic powder – ½ teaspoon onion powder – ½ teaspoon black pepper – ½ cup barbecue sauce


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Trim the membrane from the back of the ribs. Place on baking sheet lined with foil.


Combine seasoning: brown sugar, chili powder, seasoning salt, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper. Rub seasoning all over ribs.


Wrap completely in foil. Place wrapped ribs on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 2-3 hours (the exact cook time will depend on the size of your ribs. If they are 2-3 pounds, check at 2 hours. If they are 3-4 pounds, check at 2.5 hours, and go from there — they will be tender when done).


Your ribs are done with they pull easily away from the bone. Remove from the oven and brush with barbecue sauce. Broil at 475 degrees F for 3-4 minutes if desired to crisp the top slightly. Serve.
