Fall Off The Bone Ribs

A few weeks ago we had some friends over for dinner and I decided to make bbq ribs – in the oven.
That night my husband gave me a great compliment.  He said he has had friends that were so proud of their ribs and they took HOURS and lots of attention to make.  Some even entered their ribs in contests…then he went on to say he thinks the ribs I make are 100 times better then any of theirs! 🙂

I can’t take much of the credit..I got this recipe from Tina at Mommy’s Kitchen!

Here is what you need to do..and these will truly fall of the bone:

Take a broiler pan and fill the bottom section of the broiler pan about half full of beer or apple juice.  On the top section (the part with the slits) lay out your ribs.  You may want to add a rub or sauce at this time or leave them plain.  Use seasoning salt or whatever spices you have on hand.  ( I typically use a little meat tenderizer)

Cover the pan with foil and fold edges under to seal in the steam as they cook.  Place in a 300* oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
Remove foil CAREFULLY as steam will be hot.  Now all the grease is down in the bottom of the pan with the beer or apple juice,  the ribs are completely cooked and tender.

All you need to do is finish them up on the grill or under the broiler with sauce (I ALWAYS put them under the broiler)  Add honey and brown sugar to any barbecue sauce.
For the grill place ribs on grill and coat with your favorite sauce.  Grill on each side just a few  minutes until crispy.
For broiler, add barbecue sauce and broil for just a few minutes on each side.  Watch closely because sugar in the BBQ sauce will burn quickly!
