Easy Oven-Baked Ribs

By: Kelly Senyei of Just a Taste

Low and slow is the secret to meltingly tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs. Snake River Farms American Kurobuta Spare Ribs need little more than a shake of seasoning and a sprinkle of brown sugar to transform into the ultimate family-friendly meal. After baking in the oven, the ribs are brushed with barbecue sauce and then set under the broiler for an added blast of heat. This recipe guarantees maximum flavor with minimum fuss (and cleanup!).



  • 2 slabs American Kurobuta Spare Ribs, membrane removed Buy Now
  • 3 tablespoons Snake River Farms Perfect Pork Rib Buy Now
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups homemeade or store-bought barbecue sauce


Preheat the oven to 300°F. Arrange two large pieces of foil on a baking sheet so that it hangs off on all sides.
Arrange the racks of ribs side by side on the foil then sprinkle them evenly on both sides with the Perfect Pork Rub and brown sugar. Gather the foil up and around the ribs to make a foil packet. Prior to sealing the packet, add 1/2 cup water then crimp the sides securely shut.
Bake the ribs for about 3 hours or until they have reached an internal temperature of 190 to 200°F.
Remove the ribs from the oven. Adjust the oven to the "broil" setting with the top rack about 5 inches from the broiler.
Carefully open the foil packet then brush the tops of the ribs with barbecue sauce. Return the ribs to the oven and broil them just until the sauce becomes tacky, about 3 minutes.
Remove the ribs from the oven, brush them one more time with the barbecue sauce and serve.
