Directions

For the pork ribs

Combine the fennel seeds, coriander seeds, oregano, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and yogurt in a large bowl and rub into the baby back ribs. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 days. 

When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 250 degrees.

Bake in the oven for 1 ½ hours. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature.  

For the white barbecue sauce

Preheat a gas grill or grill pan over medium heat, or prepare a charcoal grill.

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Warm the ribs on the grill, toss the ribs in the white barbecue sauce, and return to a warm spot on the grill. Continue to baste and slather with sauce until nicely caramelized, about 10 minutes. Serve warm.
