This is a fantastic recipe for Pork Spare Ribs in the oven and then the grill. During the summer I can find very large racks of Pork Spare Ribs and when you cook them this way, they are juicy and flavorful!
Ingredients for Pork Spare Ribs:
Preparation: 10 Minutes
1 Rack Pork Spare Ribs 1 Tablespoon of salt 1 Tablespoons ground cumin 1 Medium red onion, grated 2 cloves of fresh garlic, grated Your favorite BBQ sauce – use whatever kind and however much you would like
Precook the ribs:
Cook time: 3 hours
Preheat oven to 300 F
Prepare a large cookie sheet with a layer of aluminum foil
Place the ribs (bony side up first) on the cookie sheet
Mix the cumin, grated onion and grated garlic in a small bowl
Sprinkle ½ Tablespoon of salt directly on the ribs (bony side)
Treat the mixture as you would a rub and scrub 1/3 of the mixture gently all over the back of the ribs
Flip the ribs over so the meaty side is face up
Sprinkle the remaining ½ Tablespoon of salt all over the top
Scrub the rest of the mixture all over the meaty part of the ribs
Take another piece of aluminum foil and completely cover the ribs. Make sure to tuck the corners of the foil under the ribs so there is a nice pocket to keep all the moisture in.
Place the ribs in the oven on the middle rack for 3 hours
After the ribs are done:
Cook time: 20 Minutes
Fire up your grill!
Using a basting brush lightly coat the ribs with a thin layer of BBQ sauce (both sides)
Cook on the grill just long enough to sear the BBQ sauce on so that you get the nice sticky outer layer About 7-8 minutes per side
Continue to lather on BBQ as desired
Here is a set of silicon basting brushes that I recommend
Let the ribs rest:
Preparation time: 5 Minutes
Pull the ribs out and let them rest on a cutting board or the baking sheet you used to cook them for 5 minutes
Slide between the bones with a sharp knife
Serve some BBQ sauce on the side
