For this recipe, we will be using st. louis style spare ribs. While you can use other pork ribs (further commentary is at the kết thúc of the post), these are the most meaty ribs of all.
They are also the most pleasing to tướng eat, in terms of not having noticeably gristly bits or connective tissue.
Step by Step Guide:
As an overview, the process for how to tướng cook spare ribs in the oven is incredibly simple:
- Season the meat with salt.
- Cut racks into individual ribs.
- Baste ribs with sauce, and bake while covered.
- Baste two more times, and cook uncovered, with a higher temperature for the final hour.
Season the Meat with Salt
Remove the ribs from the packaging, and pat dry with paper towel if the meat is excessively wet.
Season each rack of spare ribs with 1 teaspoon of kosher salt, concentrating most of it to tướng the meaty side of the racks:
If you wish to tướng add extra ingredients here, lượt thích thâm pepper, Sazon Seasoning, or a dry rub, you may vì thế that now as well, but it’s not necessary. Most barbecue sauces have a lot of ingredients and flavor.
If you vì thế decide to tướng vì thế spices here, choose a spice rub that focuses on staples lượt thích garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder or paprika. This Pork Rub is perfect. Or if you go Carolina style with your selected barbecue sauce, you could add some extra dry mustard.
Cut Meat Into Individual Pieces
Cut the racks into individual pieces by cutting in between the bones:
Place the pork spare ribs on a rimmed half sheet pan and drizzle with about 1 cup of your favorite bbq sauce:
If you’ve got đôi mươi minutes to tướng spare, my homemade bbq sauce recipe is incredibly flavorful with smoky, sweet, and spicy notes. But sometimes I use store-bought to tướng make prep easier.
Toss every one of the bone ribs in the sauce until evenly coated:
Arrange the bbq spare ribs on the rimmed baking sheet in a single layer, placing them meaty side up:
Cover the pan with heavy-duty foil, crimping the edges of the foil tightly. You really want to tướng create a seal here:
Bake the spare ribs for 1 hour and 45 minutes in an oven phối to tướng 300 degrees F, then remove the aluminum foil. The oven-baked ribs will look lượt thích this:
It is normal for them to tướng look fairly unglazed at this point.
Baste with more sauce
Take half the remaining barbecue sauce and baste the ribs:
Increase the oven temperature to tướng 350F, then continue baking them uncovered for 30 minutes, and they will look lượt thích this:
They’re starting to tướng get some caramelization on the edges, but they need another layer of sauce.
So baste the spare ribs with the remaining barbecue sauce, about 1/3 cup:
Another 20-30 minutes in the oven, and finally, they should have a wonderful glaze to tướng them from the sweet sauce:
I really lượt thích when they’re not wet or too saucy, but more lượt thích “sticky” and glazed.
By being patient and using slow cooking in the oven, the exterior is caramelized and glazed, but not scorched. This is essential for sauces that use a lot of dark brown sugar, molasses, or other sweeteners.
The spare ribs are now ready to tướng be plated, and served with your favorite sides.
For a different flavor profile, these Sticky Chinese Spareribs are another one of my favorite rib recipes. Enjoy!
Recipe FAQ and Tips
Can you use other kinds of ribs?
Yes, any kind of pork variety will work here for your selected rack of ribs. St. Louis style is my preferred because they are nicely cleaned up with the breastbone and cartilage removed, and they are uniform in shape. You may also use baby back or country style ribs, and cooking time should be similar. Baby backs may be done 30 minutes earlier, but go by tenderness.
How vì thế you store leftover spare ribs?
Keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to tướng 5 days.

Can you freeze leftover spare ribs?
Yes, keep in an airtight container in the freezer for up to tướng 2 months.
How vì thế you reheat pork ribs?
I prefer to tướng reheat in a 300F oven, wrapped in foil, for about đôi mươi minutes, until warmed through. You can also microwave them, but it’s always tricky to tướng get even heating when you have meat on the bone. If the ribs are frozen, thaw overnight in the fridge first, or defrost in the microwave.
Can you double the recipe?
Yes, just make sure the pieces are cooking in a single layer on the pan. If you use two pans and have multiple racks in your oven, it should work great, and no additional cooking time is needed.
Is there an advantage to tướng using homemade barbecue sauce?
I think ví, but the convenience factor of storebought is sometimes hard to tướng resist. Because the glaze cooks ví much on the meat, it may not be as noticeable in the kết thúc as when you’re dipping in homemade bbq sauce, ví don’t sweat it if you’re picking up a bottle from the store.
How vì thế I make the ribs taste smoky?
Even though these are made in the oven, you can use a bbq sauce that has liquid smoke in it, or you can use a spice rub that includes something lượt thích ground chipotle, which is smoked jalapeno peppers. This naturally adds a smoky flavor as well.
