Oven Barbecue Ribs

These delicious barbecue ribs are guaranteed to fall off the bone and melt in your mouth with their delicious flavour.

The combo method of an initial dry rub followed by a saucy coating gives an explosion of the tastebuds that will have you cooking these again and again!


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Peel off tough membrane that covers the underside/bony side of the ribs. Place on a baking sheet or tray lined with foil or parchment paper.
  • Combine the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper, cumin and chili or Cayenne. Sprinkle the seasoning over ribs and drizzle with oil. Rub the seasoning all over the ribs on both sides. Cover tray with foil and bake for 2 hours.
  • During the last 5 minutes of cook time, mix together the sauce ingredients.
  • Remove ribs from the oven, remove foil and spread the tops of the ribs with the barbecue sauce mixture.
  • Increase oven temperature to 460°F (240°C). Return ribs to the oven, uncovered, and bake for a further 10 minutes. Change oven settings to broil (or grill) on medium-high heat to lightly char and caramelise the edges (about 3 minutes).
  • Rest for 10 minutes to allow the juices to recirculate back into the meat before slicing.
  • Enjoy!
