Tender Baby Back Ribs

Jaden Hair
There aren't very many recipes that can boast "2 ingredients" and taste better than fall off the bone Tender Baby Back Ribs, smothered in sweet, sticky Thai chili sauce. Which by the way, isn't really all that spicy despite the name.

  • 5 pounds baby back ribs
  • salt & pepper or your favorite pork dry rub
  • 1/2 cup Thai sweet chili sauce or your favorite BBQ sauce


  • Preheat oven to 275F. On the underside of the rib, remove the thin membrane and discard. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Place the ribs in a roasting pan, cover with double thickness of tin foil.
  • Roast for 4 hours or so. Discard foil. Use a wide, flat spatula to carefully lift the ribs onto a baking sheet. Spread the sweet chili sauce generously over the ribs.
  • Place oven rack near the top of the oven. Turn broiler on and broil the ribs for 3-5 minutes, or until the sweet chili sauce begins to caramelize. Make sure you don't burn the sauce, so keep a close eye on the ribs.
