Nana's Melt-In-Your-Mouth Baby Back Ribs

Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Email This Pin This
I've always been amazed at Nana's cooking. She is incredibly fast and efficient and it's always yummy. :)  On Valentine's Day, I decided to make baby back ribs, Nana-style. The hubby is usually the rib-maker in our family (like mother like son?), but this time, I thought I'd give it a whirl. The funny thing is each time he/we make them (which has been many!), we ALWAYS have to call her to see how you make them. Well, this time we actually took notes, so we won't bug you any more, Nana! :) Check out our meal: Valentine's Day Eats

Nana's Melt-In-Your-Mouth Baby Back Ribs
by happyvballgirl

Favorite BBQ Sauce

1. Place in a baking dish/broiling pan, what-have-you and season w/ a little salt and pepper.
2. Set the oven to BROIL (aka 500 degrees F) and brown ribs for about 15-20 mins.
3. Remove ribs from oven, add some water to them and cover. Replace back into oven and cook on 300 degrees for 2-4 hours. Be sure to check occasionally to make sure there's still water in the pan. If it's starting to get low, add some more. I cooked 'em for 5 this time around.
4. Turn the oven back up to 425, brush with your favorite BBQ sauce and bake for another 20-30 minutes. Be sure to leave the water in the pan, otherwise, it'll start to burn. I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce for the first time and it was yummy! But it has High Fructose Corn Syrup so next time I'm gonna try makin' my own!
5. Remove from oven and enjoy!
