Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours 45 minutes

Ingredients

3 to 3 ½ pounds of pork ribs (cleaned)

½ cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon sea salt

1 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper

2 tablespoons ancho chile powder

2 tablespoons garlic powder

2 tablespoons smoked paprika

1 tablespoon red chili flakes

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 teaspoon cayenne

Olive oil

BBQ sauce (if preferred)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Pat ribs dry with a paper tower. In a small bowl, mix all the spices together
  • Using your hands, rub the spice mixture on both sides of the ribs, evenly. Make sure a nice crust is formed
  • Drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil on the ribs and rub it on both sides

  • Cover the ribs with foil and, on a baking sheet, place in the oven. Cook while covered for an hour and a half. Remove foil and cook uncovered for the last hour at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. For a crispier outer layer, broil the ribs on low for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove and let them rest while covered. If you want them saucy, coat them with barbeque sauce while covered and let them rest
  • Serve and enjoy

Additional Recipe

If you prefer a simpler recipe, instead of coating the ribs in all these spices, you can coat it with salt and pepper, liberally, and rub it with olive oil. Then add a few sprigs of rosemary and wrap it with foil. You can cook it per the instruction above!
