Paco is in Dallas this week, but for whatever reason, right before leaving for Texas, he wanted to make ribs. He bakes them slowly in the oven so that they’re tender but not falling off the bone, then finishes them on the grill.
We served them with macaroni salad and sweet and tangy cole slaw. This would make a great 4th of July meal!
1 rack of pork ribs (regular back ribs, baby back ribs, or spare ribs)
your favorite barbeque sauce
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Place the ribs on a baking sheet, and season both sides with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne. Cook for three hours.
When the ribs are tender, remove them from the oven. Preheat the grill to medium high heat, then grill for 10 minutes on each side. While the ribs are cooking, baste them with barbeque sauce.
Slice the rack into individual ribs and enjoy!
Thanks for this Cristina! We’re throwing a lil bday shindig for Lou at our house this wknd (wanna come?) – this inspired the menu. We’ll make ribs in the oven and I’m going to make a big batch of the slaw. I’ll let you know if I fail miserably!
Aw, that sounds so fun! I wish we could be there. Wish Lou a happy birthday for me. 🙂
