Step 4: Into the Oven
What we're doing here is braising the ribs; cooking them on low heat in a moist environment. This breaks down all the connective tissues in the ribs making them tender.
Place the pan in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
Then, drop the heat down to 250 degrees for about 3 hours. (This is where you use the rest of that 12 pack.)
Check on the ribs at 2 1/2 hours. If you can grab a bone and pull it out, it's ready. Once fully cooked, uncover and let rest for 20 minutes.
