Why You'll Love This Recipe

You will love this Easy BBQ Baby Back Ribs recipe! These tender, fall off the bone ribs are so easy to make. Cooking ribs low and slow is the key to tender fall off the bone ribs. That also makes them incredibly easy to make!

This recipe starts with removing the membrane, seasoning ribs with a few simple spices, and then covering and baking at a low oven temperature. The low and slow roast will result in fall off the bone ribs! After the ribs are fully cooked, then I remove the foil cover and brush on BBQ sauce and bake again – and I do that twice to seal in the BBQ flavor into the ribs.

You can serve these Easy BBQ Baby Back Ribs with corn on the cob, my Kale Apple Salad, or Garlic Lemon Sweet Potato Fries! I created this recipe with my friends at Organic Prairie using their Organic Baby Back Ribs – which are insanely good! Order online and have them shipped right to your door.

How to Make Easy BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Step 1

Preheat oven to 275°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Remove membrane from the baby back ribs and place on the prepared baking sheet. Pat dry the ribs with paper towels.

Step 2

In a small dish add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder and mix together. Sprinkle the dry rub all over the top of the ribs and rub in.

Cover the ribs with another piece of foil and seal the two foil pieces together, so the ribs are not uncovered at all.

Step 3

Bake for 3 hours or until the ribs are tender, remove from oven and remove foil.

Using a pastry brush, brush on your favorite BBQ sauce. Return to the oven for 15 minutes. 

Step 4

Remove again and brush on a second layer of BBQ sauce. Turn the oven up to 400°F and bake for 10 minutes. Ribs should register between 145°F on a meat thermometer.

FAQ's

Can I cook ribs on the grill?

Yes, if you want to cook these ribs on the grill you can do that. Grill temperature will play a big factor in how long they will take to cook. You may also want to consider boiling the ribs beforehand, so the grill time is shorter, and you get tender ribs. You can also bake them and finish them and add the BBQ sauce on the grill too.

Should you boil ribs before grilling?

You can boil ribs before grilling to help cut down on the cooking time. Ribs are the best when they are very tender and almost fall off the bone. If you are going to grill them, boiling beforehand can help reduce the cooking time on the grill, which can also result in more tender ribs.

What is the best organic BBQ sauce?

My favorite organic BBQ sauce is the Kinder’s Organic Mild BBQ Sauce. You can use any kind of BBQ sauce you like with this recipe, but we love this one in our house! This is a sweet, slightly smokey and mild BBQ sauce that goes well with everything.

Why go organic?

You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.

Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
