Who wants some finger-licking ribs? These oven-baked ribs are cooked low and slow for several hours to ensure the meat falls easily off the bone. Many recipes call for ribs to be barbecued, however some of us don’t have access to an outdoor grill due to the lack of outdoors space or apartment living. Luckily, the oven is ideal for cooking ribs because the temperature is constant and steady. Plus, it makes your house smell like heaven!
This recipe calls for a thick coat of a paleo-friendly BBQ sauce to be brushed on the ribs toward the end of cooking. Like most sauces, it’s best to make your own, so you can control the quality of ingredients. Many sauces, dressings and dips are made with unhealthy vegetable oils, sweeteners and artificial sweeteners.
When the ribs are done cooking, remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes or so. Cut the rib meat between the bone and serve with an extra dollop of BBQ sauce.
