One online reviewer cliams that this baby-back ribs recipe is "simple and delicious."
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
4 pounds baby-back pork ribs (2 racks)
How to Make It
Light a grill or heat oven to 300° F.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar, chili powder, salt, mustard powder, and thyme. Rub the mixture on the ribs, coating each side.
If grilling, cook the ribs bone-side down over medium-low heat or when the coals are well covered with ash. Adjust the flame or add coals as necessary. Cook for 1 1/2 hours. If oven roasting, place the meat in roasting pans bone-side down and cook for 1 1/2 hours. The ribs are done when you can insert a fork between two ribs and separate them.
These were very simple and had a crowd-pleasing flavor. I cooked my rack in the oven, and it took 2 1/2 hours, as opposed to the 1 1/2 the recipe suggested. Possibly the difference between my oven or my specific rack of ribs, but the result was definitely worth the wait. I might only recommend you choose sides that can be prepared ahead or done very last minute when you make this the first time in order to know what will work in your oven.
Joan: The 800 calories has to pertain to the meat. The recipe is for four people and calls for 2 slabs of ribs which would be 1/2 slab per person. That's a lot of ribs! The only other calories would be the sugar and you could use Splenda to cut down on those calories. I haven't tried the recipe yet but will soon. Hope this helps.
Having just returned from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas I can't wait to try these yummy sounding ribs. I will try the oven for mine. I'm curious, is the 807 calories really for one serving? That seems like a lot! Could someone check into this?
