Salt and Pepper Spare Ribs

These ribs are baked at a low temperature for several hours that results in meat that easily pulls away from the bone.

Prep Time: 20 min.

Cook Time: 4 hrs.

Ready In: 4 hrs. 20 min.

Ingredients:

  • Two slabs pork spare ribs, 3 1/2 lbs. each
  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 4 limes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 small onion, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  1. Preheat the oven
  2. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

  3. Prepare the ribs
  4. Before seasoning, pull away the thin membrane along the bone-side of the meat and toss. Then, mix together the black pepper, salt and paprika and sprinkle on both sides of the meat.

  5. Bake
  6. Place the ribs bone-side up on a baking tray and place in the oven. Bake for 3 1/2 to 4 hours, or until the meat starts to pull away from the bone.

  7. Prepare the sauce
  8. While the ribs are baking, prepare the sauce by melting the butter in a medium saucepan and adding in the onions and garlic and season with salt and black pepper. Allow the onions and garlic to cook for 2 to 3 minutes and then add in the remaining ingredients, minus the limes. Cook for about 5 minutes.

  9. Serve
  10. Remove the ribs from the oven and squeeze the lime juice over the ribs. Cut and serve with the sauce.
