How to cook Oven Barbequed Spare Ribs

Oven Barbequed Spare Ribs is simply barbequed spare ribs that is cooked by baking and broiling. Though grilling and/or placing inside the pit is the traditional and most common way of cooking this dish, baking it in the oven would be the next alternative (unless you really want that smokey flavor and smell).

This is recipe is the simplest and least effort consuming  that I know of. It could take a while to bake that rib but I’m sure that you won’t mind doing it over and over after you tasted one.

Having some grilled corn on the cob or mashed potatoeswould be great as side dishes. Then again, a cup of steamed rice or two is still the perfect choice.

3. Cover the spare ribs with the Aluminum foil by joining the opposite sides and sealing them. If the aluminum foil is short, you may add a new sheet by placing it on top of the spare ribs. Leave this for at least one hour.

4. In a heated saucepan, pour the beer and bring to a boil.

5. Put-in the garlic, Worcestershire sauce, barbeque sauce, and ground black pepper then stir. Simmer for 7 minutes or until sauce becomes thicker.

7. Pre-heat the oven at 230 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes then bake the spare ribs for 2 hours.

8. After baking, drain all the sauce from the spare ribs and place them in a sauce pan.

9. Cook the drained sauce until texture becomes really thick.

10. Using a basting brush, paint the sauce on the spare ribs.

11. Place the oven to “broil” mode then broil the spare ribs until the color of the painted sauce turns dark brown. Do not cover the ribs with foil this time.

12. Remove the Oven Barbequed Spare Ribs from the oven then serve. Share and Enjoy!
