How to make Ribs in the Oven
Here’s a step by step process on how to prepare and bake ribs:
Remove the Silver Skin
There’s always a thin sliver skin or membrane along the back of the ribs. You need to remove this membrane to make the rib fun to eat. The membrane actually makes the meat less tender.
The membrane is easy to remove. Just turn the ribs and look for a membrane part that you can easily grab. You can slide a small knife blade between the skin and the ribs to pull up the membrane.
When you catch a piece of this silver membrane, pull it back like you’re peeling off a piece of tape. You can pull the entire membrane off at once if you do it right.
Add a dry rub
After removing the membrane, it is important to sprinkle a dry rub across the ribs to add an extra layer of intense flavor. You can allow it sit overnight in the refrigerator, but it’s not compulsory.
There are some dry rub recipes available commercially, but if you prefer, you can simply use pepper and salt to season the ribs liberally.
Bake the ribs
Cut off a piece of tin foil to make a packet for the ribs. Ensure that the foil is large enough to completely encase the rib. Crimp the edges of the foil to keep the steam in. This makes the rib become very tender.
Place your baking sheet inside the oven and set it at 2750C. The amount of time it needs to cook depends on the size of the rack of ribs you’re baking.
However, for a small rack of ribs, it would take around 2 to 2 ½ hours to cook. Medium rack can take up to 3 hours, while the large rack can take around 4 hours.
Don’t check it until it cooks in the oven for a minimum of 2 hours. After that time, you can give it a peek.
You’d most likely notice that the meat has pulled back from the bone edges. You can insert a fork into the meat if you’re not sure and give it a gentle tug. It should come out easy but if it doesn’t, you should put it back into the oven for another 30 minutes.
Note that cooking the ribs to perfection can take up to 4 hours, depending on the size of the ribs you’re baking. But you need to be careful not to overdo it, else you’ll get bones that are too tender.
Add your BBQ Sauce
After cooking, remove the ribs from the tin foil and slather it with BBQ sauce. (You can use the Bayou Glaze Sweet BBQ Sauce (250-MG). This sauce is hemp-infused and it gives you numerous health benefits aside from its savory taste. The sauce actually boosts the flavor and seals in the juices.
Grill or Broil
You can slap the ribs that are basted with BBQ sauce and place it on a hot grill meat side up. Allow the ribs to get a little char around the edges before basting again. In some 5-10 minutes, you should get a great caramelized crust on the top.
If you want to broil, place the ribs under the broiler for 5 minutes. Watch it closely, in case of flare-ups. You can give them a second dose of sauce and put them back under the broiler for another 3-5 minutes. This helps to fully caramelize the sauce.
The good thing about this recipe is that it’s scale-able. This means that you can decide to make one rack for one or two people or make 4 to 5 at a time for a crowd.
