This is another family favorite dish that I’m sharing here. This is my preferred way of making BBQ baby back ribs. I cook this regularly in rotation because I can boil and marinate the ribs ahead of time and just pop it in the oven when it is time for dinner or lunch. Easy.
And this baby has now become my regular for whenever we have some guests coming over. It is always a winner.
Baby back ribs are so good, it looks complicated (NOT at all) to make it can be quite expensive in restaurants, if you make this at home, your family will be impressed and next thing you know you are also serving this on special gatherings at home or bringing it to potluck parties,
This can be made using stove-top grill too, in fact I only make this in the oven when I’m also planning to bake some dessert to save on my electric bill.:)
However you choose to cook it, it will only give you delicious, finger licking-good baby back ribs 🙂
