Oven Slow Roasted Ribs

With temperatures hovering near 60 this past week (in February!) it has seemed like a much-needed dose of early Spring. With the change in weather, however short-lived, I wanted picnic and summer food this week. So, I dug through my freezer to find some baby back ribs and started to make the whole summer dinner complete with Deviled Egg Macaroni Salad and Baked Beans.

Verdict:

This was just what the doctor ordered to get rid of those winter blues! The weather and food made us think it was June. This was my first time oven roasting ribs but it won’t be my last. It was so simple. I started with a dry rub and cooked it for 2 1/2-2 3/4 hours. Then put the barbecue sauce over the ribs and broiled it for 2-3 minutes.  The ribs were perfectly done.  Juicy and sticky. A perfectly delicious mess.

The Deviled Egg Macaroni Salad and brown baked beans were perfect sides for the ribs.
