Time certainly brings out the essence of these ribs, even if you do not follow up with the BBQ sauce. I actually prefer them without the sauce, but that is a personal choice. If you follow the recipe to a T, you cannot go wrong one way or the other. FYI…they were so tasty we ate them all before I remembered a photo. Serve with a great coleslaw…
Oven Baked Dry Rub Ribs
For the dry rub
- 1/2 a cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon mustard powder
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
Take your ribs and trim off any excess fat, then place them in a baking dish or you could use the disposable foil baking dish.
Preheat your oven to 130°C/266°F
Take your rub mixture and rub it on the pork ribs one by one ensuring that you coat every piece of meat.
Once you have finished rubbing each and every rib, place them in your baking tray and cover it up with aluminium foil and place it into the oven.
OPTIONAL After 2 and 1/2 hours, remove them from the oven, apply your fav BBQ sauce. Coat each rib with the sauce using a spoon or brush then put them back in the oven but this time don’t cover them.
Let them continue cooking for the last 30 minutes brushing them frequently with the sauce.
