Lou's Baby Back Ribs

For Mother’s Day we drove up to visit my In-Laws at their house where my Father-In-Law served the most delicious Baby Back Ribs. I asked him if he would share the recipe and he was more than happy to do just that. So for Father’s Day celebration my In-Laws came down here to visit and I decided to make Lou’s Baby Back Ribs and it turned into a fun family cooking affair. We had a great time cooking the ribs together and it turned out to be a weekend filled with lots of good food as well as good company. 

This is my Fathers-In-Law’s Baby Back Rib recipe. The ribs are full of flavor and baked tender in the oven for two plus hours. At the end, the ribs are placed under the broiler to give the outside a nice crisp.  There are no set ingredient amounts, simply just sprinkle on an amount to your liking. The ribs were served with; red and white rosemary roasted potatoes and a spinach salad with heirloom tomatoes, candied walnuts, dried cranberries with a raspberry dressing. Delicious dinner!

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Remove excess fat from ribs. Coat both sides of ribs with molasses and then sprinkle a good amount of salt, pepper, pork rub, paprika and mustard. Finally press on a generous amount of brown sugar. Place ribs on a large baking sheet and cover tightly with foil. Cook in preheated oven for 2 hours and 15 minutes. Remove from oven and drain off excess liquid, then apply BBQ sauce and place under broiler for 4-5 minutes keeping a close eye, careful not to burn.
