Easy BBQ baby back ribs recipe, the American classic. Definitely, a great comfort food on top of the list. I never thought that I would cook the American baby back ribs myself. We always had this dish in the restaurant.
Prep Time: 10 Minutes Active Cook Time: 15-20 Minutes Inactive Cook Time: 9 Hours Serving: 2-4
In my opinion, it is a lot of work and time consuming. What you pay in the restaurant is about the same as what you pay for the ingredients in the grocery store, right? Not to mention you still need to take time to cook it.
But what made me to do it myself? Mainly because after so many times we went to the same restaurants which claim that their ribs are their specialty. And it turned out the quality is different every time. Hearing the same complaint from my husband over and over for so many times, I decided to give it a try.
What I like about this recipe is that if it is on a day when you will stay at home, your oven helps you multi-tasking. If it happens to be a cold day, it is even better. It makes the whole house smells good and feels cozy.
Throughout the time when the ribs cooking in the oven, you just need to either flip or glaze the ribs.
When you see this easy BBQ baby back ribs serving on the table falling off the bone, give yourself a pad on the shoulder and be proud.
3.5 lbs Baby Back Ribs

I thought it would make it clearer if I write a few bullets here to divide those 9 inactive cooking hours for you:
1st hour - 425F
2nd - 5th hour - 250F, then glaze ribs
6th - 7th hour - 220 F, then glaze ribs again
8th hour - glaze
9th hour - glaze
10 minutes - rest before serving
Start cooking this easy BBQ baby back ribs around 8 or 9am in the morning, it will be ready for dinner by 6 or 7pm. Enjoy!
