Oven Pork Ribs

Here’s how I make pork ribs in the oven. There’s a few key things here:

Rub for the pork ribs – to add flavour;

Liquid for cooking is an important step in this pork ribs recipe! It creates a steamy environment as the ribs slowly cook in the oven, keeping them lovely and juicy. My preferred liquid is alcoholic apple cider (also known as hard apple cider), since alcohol, like many other ingredients, provides additional levels of flavor. But there are plenty of alternative options: Beer, apple juice, broth, or just water;

Homemade barbecue sauce – Ribs are a special event around here, so using store-bought barbecue sauce does not even occur to me. It’s also one of those sauces that’s really simple to make at home and tastes so much better than store-bought since it’s pure and authentic and without the faint artificial edge of store-bought. Try it once, and you’ll be a convert for life!

Baste, bake, baste, bake! The more you baste-bake, the better your sticky barbecue sauce coating on the ribs
