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.
Oops and i fotgot to add, i slathered some sweet baby rays bbq sauce on top b4 i baked a bit more then broiled, i kinda make stuff up as i go along ehen i cook
I made these tonight and they were to die for. Omg. I upped the temp to 350 towards the end and then finished them off under the broiler. I used a dry rub of random including goya adobo, onion powder, garlic powder, chila powder, smoked paprika....
<p>OK So I just realized I had another SNAFU! I didn't go to the last step on the next page, sooooo you're supposed to turn the heat down to 250? How did my ribs turn out so good? Maybe it was a good thing I accidently turned off the oven! I guess this speaks well for the technique because I sure made a couple big mistakes and they still turned out wonderful! Thanks for the recipe!</p>
<p>I made these ribs. I had a snafu when I accidentally turned off the oven about an hour and a half into the process and wasn't sure how long it had been off when I found it. So I baked them another hour past when they should have been done. When I opened the foil, the rub had darkened and I thought they were burnt. My husband stuck a fork in the meat and it fell off the bone! It was so moist and tender! We stood at the stove and ate a couple of ribs before we even thought about getting a plate! All's I can say is &quot;Yum, I'm so stuffed! You have to try this!&quot;</p>
These look awesome! I'm definitely going to try these soon!
<em>&quot;What we're doing here is searing and then braising the ribs; &quot;</em> - you are not searing the ribs; to sear is to char or lightly burn the surface of a meat (to lock the meat's natural juices inside while braising, roasting, steaming, or otherwise cooking). Searing would be another step before you wrap them up and bake (braise) them.<br/>
Yeah, your right. Searing is done in a drier environment so caramelization can occur. However, searing doesn't lock in flavor as much as it creates new flavors. Thanks for the correction :]
Nice write-up.. An excellent touch is to put the rack under the broiler for a few minutes after you sauce them up.. That gives it the 'roasted over fire' taste with a few black bits. You need to watch it closely, or they will burn to a crisp. Thanks!
