Fall-Off the bone oven-baked ribs

Baking ribs in the oven is seriously easy and a great way to enjoy summer food during Fall. Here’s one of our go-to recipes.

2 to 2 1/2 pounds back pork ribs
Salt and black pepper
Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon hot chili sauce
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Heat oven to 275° Fahrenheit (135C).
If the ribs still have the thin membrane covering the back of the rack, remove it (or ask us to do it for you).
Season both sides of the ribs with a generous amount of salt and pepper. If you are using a spice rub, add season the ribs with it now. Place the ribs, meat-side up, into a large roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet. 
Cover the pan or baking sheet tightly with aluminum foil, and then bake until the meat falls easily from the bones, 2 ½ to 3 ½ hours. The ribs are done when the meat is cooked through and tender.

Make BBQ Sauce
While the ribs bake, make the barbecue sauce. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
Add the onions and cook until soft and translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in the cumin and cook for an additional 30 seconds.
Add the ketchup, hot chili sauce, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar. Stir to combine, season with salt then cook for 2 minutes. Set aside in preparation for the ribs to finish roasting.
Remove the ribs from the oven, discard the aluminum foil and generously brush both sides with barbecue sauce.
