Oven Baked Pork Ribs

You can definitely do it with your BBQ grill. I've tried before. Not that it didn't work, it worked perfectly. But it took 2 hours when people kept asking me "is it done?", "can we eat it now?", "how much longer it's gonna take?" When it's finally done, everybody was full with other food.

This rib involves slow cooking. You could either cook it way before your BBQ starts, or just like me, use the oven.

(serves 6)
2 racks of pork baby back ribs
1/2 cup tomato paste
1 cup orange juice
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup chili powder
salt and pepper to taste


Whisk together all remaining ingredients. Pour over the ribs. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

Preheat over to 300F.

Remove ribs from marinate. Place ribs into a large roasting pan. Reserve marinate.

Bake the ribs until they are fork tender, about 2 1/2 hours.

To make dipping sauce, bring to the boil and simmer the marinate in a sauce pan for 5 mins.

Cut ribs in pieces and serve with dipping sauce.

Next time, try add a little ground coffee in the sauce. It adds some "smoky" flavor. Quite delicious. I forget where I learn this.
