Everyone loves a tender and flavorful Fall off the Bone Ribs recipe. Baked low and slow, tender, juicy and full of flavor. Plus this bbq sauce recipe has a spicy Sriracha kick! This ribs recipe uses a delicious homemade spice rub while slow roasting ribs in oven. No bbq is required so you can make this recipe in the oven year round.
Fall of the Bone Ribs
There are so many ways to make bbq pork ribs. To make ribs fast, you can boil the ribs before grilling to save time. Other recipes use a slow cooker, grilled Asado style, or smoked. The whole point is for the ribs to be tender, so they fall off the bone while you eat them. Low oven temperature and slowly cooked is the key to making tender ribs in the oven.
Bbq Ribs Spice Rub
The spice rub can be made with your favorite spices or store bought rubs. However, homemade is tastier and cheaper, and you can customise to your tastes. Cajun spice is always packs a punch and works perfectly as a flavor boost with this recipe.
- brown sugar
- cajun spice
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- cumin paprika
Removing Rib Membranes
Do I need to remove rib membranes? This is probably the most annoying part of preparing ribs for me, but it's definitely necessary. In the video below, I forgot to remove the membranes, because I was so focussed on the filming. Once I started, I was committed so I had to continue! 🤣
What happens when you cook the ribs with membranes? The membranes are tough and chewy and ruins your ribs experience. It also doesn't allow for the ribs to fully absorb the flavors and rubs into the meat. Some butchers sell the ribs with the membranes removed, so all the hard work is done for you! If not, here are some instructions;
- Slide a knife underneath the membrane anywhere on the back of the ribs to loosen it
- You might need to try several different spots until it starts to lift
- Using a paper towel, grab the membrane and peel away from the ribs. If you're lucky it will peel in a single sheet. If not, then start in another section until it's removed
Honey Sriracha Bbq Sauce
Everyone has a favorite bbq sauce, it's the finishing flavors that make or break your fall of the bone ribs. The Honey Sriracha Bbq Sauce is perfect if you like your bbq ribs to have a bit of a kick. You can skip the Sriracha Sauce and mix in your favorite hot sauce. I like to use Sweet Baby Ray's or Stubb's Texas Bbq Sauce.
- Bbq Sauce
- Sriracha Sauce (or hot sauce)
Foil Wrapped Ribs
When making oven baked ribs, you must wrap them in foil. This allows the moisture to stay in the ribs, and limits any burning due to the sweet and sticky rubs and sauces. You can either loosely cover each rib in foil, or line the whole tray with foil and cover.
Fall off the Bone Ribs in Oven
Low and slow is the key to cooking tender ribs in the oven. Oven heated to 325°F or 160°C for about 2½ hours will have the perfect result. In the video I cooked my Flintstone ribs 350°F. When using the oven method, keep the oven rack at lower level so the ribs won't burn.
- Apply spice rib to your rack of ribs
- Foil line the tray and cover the ribs with foil
- Cook in oven for 2 ½ hours, remove from oven and unwrap foil
- Generously brush on bbq sauce and broil in oven (uncovered) for 3-4 minutes
- Serve with extra bbq sauce
Ribs are essential summer cooking, but don't let the seasons stop you. With this Fall off the Bone Ribs recipe, you can even enjoy ribs when it's snowing outside, no bbq required.
