Yummy Beef Ribs

This is what will be cooking in my oven in about another 3 hours. So since I'm working on them I thought I would share with everyone along the way.

2 racks of beef ribs trimmed and cut into individual ribs
Salt, pepper and garlic to season
Your favorite BBQ sauce

Trim the ribs and cut into individual ribs, season with salt, pepper and garlic. Put in a plastic bag and toss with just enough BBQ sauce to lightly coat the ribs and then let them sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Ribs tossed in BBQ sauce in a plastic bag. Let them sit for at least 4 hours like this.

Here are the ribs in the pan ready to go in the oven.

These ribs cook in the oven, covered at 250 degrees for 3 hours or until tender. Uncover and brush with BBQ sauce and cook uncovered for 30 more minutes. You can switch the oven over to broil the last 10 minutes or so to give the ribs that wonderful caramelized crust if you like.
Here are the ribs all done, barely got a picture taken as the family descended upon them when done!

I serve these ribs with a salad and corn on the cob for a simple meal. To me the ribs are the star of this meal and they take center stage with simple sides and some bread.


  1. Do you deliver? lol

  2. Yum! I'm going to fix mine like this soon!

  3. They were so good, tender and so juicy. Cooking them covered and at the low heat is the key. I always put them under the broiler for about five minutes after putting on the last bit of sauce. Hope you guys are staying warm down there also.

  4. Those beef ribs look awesome, and very fitting for I Heart Beef month!


Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again!
