I don’t remember the last time we have had a dreary rainy day since we moved to Florida. Maybe it is because the frequent sunshine fades the memories faster here. None the less today is one of those rainy days.I know that I often crave comfort foods even on a steamy rainy day has we have here. 100% humidity and 77 degree outside, but inside it is cool and comfortable. Thankfully.
So I decided that tonight I am going to make a favorite recipe that was shared with me many years ago for slow cooked pork ribs. Not a fan of pork? You could easily do this same recipe with beef or lamb ribs.These succulent and tender ribs just fall off the bone after basting in their own juices all afternoon. And the recipe, it doesn't get much easier than this….
For 4-5 pounds of ribs, blend the following ingredients in a small bowl:
Place the ribs in a glass or ceramic baking dish and pour marinade over ribs, rubbing to coat evenly.I like to purchase pre-cut ribs as show below for this recipe or cut the ribs apart before slow roasting in the oven so that they are easy to serve when done. I also just made a half batch of ribs, you can easily adjust the marinade up or down depending upon how many servings you need.Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Place ribs into a preheated 225 F oven and bake all day.
An hour before serving, brush a little Wildtree Cactus Pete’s Agave BBQ sauce on each rib. Return to oven and finish baking uncovered.
These ribs can also be made ahead, refrigerated and then just rewarmed in the oven uncovered for an hour or until hot. Or you could also easily do in a slow cooker following the same process. They will not get caramelized on top like they do in the oven during the last hour but they will still be delicious.
I am added corn on the cob and fresh watermelon to tonight’s menu to make it really feel like barbecue! I hope you enjoy these rainy day BBQ ribs as much as we will!Come back later for additional pictures of the finished product….
