Ever since learning how to make slow cooked ribs in the oven, I've been super judgy about restaurant ribs. Don't they know the secret?! This simple rib cooking method will get you perfect, tender, juicy, fall off the bone ribs every single time. You can devour them straight from the oven or baste them with your favorite barbecue sauce and finish on the grill. Either way, you're going to want to make lots because these delicious ribs always disappear fast!

finish your slow cooked ribs on the grill medium heat

cover your ribs with foil and bake at a low temperature for several hours

You want to cover your ribs tightly in foil so the steam helps cook them as well.  This keeps the meat moist and tender and makes sure you don't get dry ribs. No one wants dry meat!

I love slow cooking ribs when we're expecting company because you can make them ahead and then heat them up on the grill when everyone's arrived.  You can even make them days or weeks ahead and pop the ribs in the freezer!  They're a great option for gifting dinner to friends going through a hard time or for new parents.  Skip the casserole, do something different!

ribs are easier to slice when they've been chilled - refrigerate overnight before grilling for best results

a good spice rub is key for delicious slow baked ribs

The wonderful thing about these simple ribs is the meat can be used in so many ways.  Just as is, or in pork tacos, on pizza, in casseroles.  You could even stir the rib meat into your favorite soup.  Or hey! Make yourself a knock off McRib sandwich!  Yum.  I like to prepare extra so we can pull them out of the freezer on busy nights and enjoy a delicious home made meal.

Fall Off the Bone Pork Barbecue Ribs - Low and Slow Rib Cooking Method

Fall Off the Bone Barbecue Pork Rib Ingredients:

Fall Off the Bone Barbecue Pork Rib Directions:

  1. Smother your pork ribs on both sides with the rub.  Place meat side down on a foil lined baking pan.  Make sure you choose one with a lip, because there will be juices released in the cooking process.  
  2. Seal pan(s) tightly with foil and bake at 225 degrees for 3 1/2 - 4 hours.
  3. Remove foil and allow meat to rest.  If you're making ahead of time, now you can (when they're cool enough!) throw them in the fridge. 
  4. Just before you're ready to grill, slather the ribs with barbecue sauce.  Then throw on a medium heat grill (or 350 degree oven) for 5 - 15 minutes, until heated to your liking.
  5. Enjoy!
