Everyone loves juicy, succulent pork ribs. What you may not know is that you don’t have barbeque ribs on a grill. You can actually bake them and produce the same juicy deliciousness. Here is recipe to show you how.
First, you need to determine the serving size you need for the amount of people you plan on feeding. Not all of the weight of ribs is composed of meat. A lot of the weight of ribs is made up of fat and bone. For this reason, you may need a decent amount of packaged ribs or a fairly large rack of ribs. You should calculate the amount you will need as one pound per adult.
Secondly, you need to take the ribs you have chosen and remove the membrane that may still be on the underside of the ribs on the rib cage.
Third, you will need to season your ribs. Add a decent amount of seasoning to the top of the ribs and then flip them over and add a decent amount of seasoning to the underside as well. Seasoning that you should use should include salt, pepper, garlic, and meat tenderizer. For some extra flavor, also add turmeric, paprika, or other spices.
Fourth, get a decent amount of aluminum foil and a large baking pan. Place the aluminum foil over the baking pan.
Fifth, you should pour some water into the bottom of the baking pan. The water should be about one fourth of inch deep in the pan. This will allow the meat to stay moist while it cooks in the oven. The water will also prevent the bottom of the aluminum foil from burning in the oven.
For the sixth step, you need to place the ribs on top of the aluminum foil. You’ll want to place the ribs with the ribcage side of the ribs facing the pan so the ribs form an arch.
Next, you may want to add vegetables so you can roast them with your ribs. Vegetables you can cook with your ribs include carrots, onions, and potatoes. Simply slice these vegetables into decent sized chunks and then place then around and under the ribs on the pan.
Now, fold the aluminum foil over the ribs so it forms a tent shape. This aluminum foil tent will need to be as air tight as you can possibly make it. This is done to keep in the moisture in while the ribs cook instead of letting it escape. However, let the foil be loose enough around the meat so it does not press against the meat while it cooks.
The next step is to preheat your oven to three hundred and twenty five degrees Fahrenheit. After the oven is preheated, slide in the tray with your foil covered ribs. Now, let it cook for about an hour.
After one hour has passed, remove the tray from the oven and uncover the ribs from the aluminum foil. Now, turn the temperature of your oven up to three hundred and seventy five degrees. Slide the pan with the uncovered ribs back into the oven. Let the ribs cook for another ten to fifteen minutes. This extra cooking time will brown the ribs and evaporate some of the juices left in the pan.
When those ten to fifteen minutes are up, remove your pan from the oven. The last step is to serve your ribs. Make sure to serve them quickly after cooking for the best results. The vegetables you cooked with the ribs will also be very tender due to having picked up a lot of moisture from the water and the juices from the ribs. Serve them with care.
