Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons finely ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon ground oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • 2 Teaspoons celery salt
  • ½ Teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 racks baby back ribs

  • 1 jar barbeque sauce

Directions

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.

To make the rib rub, combine the black pepper, oregano, paprika, celery salt, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl and rub the mixture over the surface of the ribs to coat.

Place the ribs on a sheet pan roast and bake for 3 hours (check on the ribs periodically as they cook). During the last hour of baking, glaze with the barbecue sauce every 15 minutes and turn the ribs over each time you glaze.

Fifteen minutes before the 3-hour mark, check whether the ribs have cooked through to your desired doneness. If so, broil on low for a few minutes to get color. Cut and serve with the remaining barbecue sauce.

Rib Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Rib Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
