Step 2: Rub

Preheat your oven to 400F(200C).

Rinse and pat dry your ribs.  Get them as close to room temp as you can before cooking.

Rub both sides of the ribs with the dry rub.  You can also substitute simple salt and pepper if you'd prefer!

Lay ribs fat-side up on a sheet of aluminum foil and seal shut.

Bake for one hour.

Sounds fantastic! But I must be adding wrong. Step 2 says to bake for one hour apply sauce and return to the oven for another 15 to 20 minutes. Where did the other hour and 45 minutes go?
That's right! The other hour and forty five disappear! This recipe takes half the time of traditional three-hour recipes!
Directly in the oven after wrapping? Or also placed on a pan?
Hi, I just felt obligated to write here, your receipe was incredible. there was a ridiculous deal for an outrageous amount of ribs at the grocery, so I was gonna go for it but then remembered I had never cooked ribs before. All I knew is that it had to cook for a few hours (which I didn't have). So I googled how to cook ribs fast and there was your instructable , second result I think. I bought me some dry rub and B.B.Q. sauce.......... and voila!!!! your receipe was so simple. and it worked out great . I didn't think I'd get a result THAT close to grilling. so anyways. thank you and great receipe/instructable.
That's so awesome! Thank you for sharing your experience, you totally made my day!
What an amazing recipie, big thanks! <br>Baby backack ribs can be a steal, I paid $2.99lb at Costco today and will feast tonight. <br>Where did the 3 hours come from? IMHO dreamberry's comment should be moved down or edited. I almost did not try this due to the 3 hour comment. Heck in 3 hours I'll be watching bad TV after filling myself with ribs.
This may be a terrible question, but once ribs are wrapped in foil, do they go directly onto the oven rack with a drip pan beneath just in case? Or do they get wrapped in foil and placed onto a pan?
<p>Do you think I could use this recipe with Country Style Ribs? Would that work or would the ribs be tough?</p>
Pork seasoning and pork season are two of the best things in life. <br><br>You can have chicken any time, the more free range the better!
Thank you SO much! These came out terrific, even for a novice like me. My guy loved it, and I can confidentally show up any in laws with this! Thank you for this wonderful recipe, you have helped so many of us!
<p>Can this recipe be used with spare ribs?</p>
<p>We bought ribs with NO idea that they were suppose to cook for soooo long. Who has time for that?!?! Can't wait to try this tonight.</p>
<p>Oh.my.word....these turned out amazing! So easy and soooo delicious. I think it made my boyfriend fall in love with me all over again. </p>
Sorry this is my firat time cooking this , but i have 3lbs now how long would that have to cook in the oven?
This is a fabulous recipe and is now one of my keepers! I made it this evening for the first time!!! Yum!!! Thank you for sharing!
<p>Great recipe! </p>
<p>I've probably made this twenty times now using different rubs and sauces and the ribs are always awesome. Thanks for sharing this.</p>
<p>Hey there! I'm giving this a go on the weekend in a massive cookup and was looking for some advice. </p><p>I'm cooking multiple things in the oven. Is it possible to do steps 1 and 2 first, and then leave the ribs out for about an hr while I cook something else in the oven and then finish off step 3 so that I can serve the ribs while they are still hot?</p>
<p>Thanks for posting this. I tried it a month ago and thought it was pretty good. Just trying it again now and realize the reason it probably wasn't perfect is I didn't notice no sauce/marinade was supposed to go on till after the first hour. What a 'duh' moment. I've made the mistake again today, but next time I think they'll be less charred, and awesome. :)</p>
<p>Works like a charm! Since we're snowed in right now, this works out great!</p>
I pride my self on my grilling awesomeness. Weather does not normaly stop me. Tonight it did. 5 degrees with 30mph winds. Family was craving babybacks and I didn't want to disappoint. Came across this gem of a way to cook them in the oven. The end result was some incredible ribs. Tender and moist. My family perfered this over the grill. Feelings hurt but can't blame them.....I think I perfered them this way too. Thank you!
<p>I didn't have all day to make ribs like I usually do, so I looked up how to make ribs fast. This recipe totally blew me away with how it turned out! My family loved the ribs and I loved how quick and easy they were to make. Thank you sooo much for this recipe!</p>
This recipe absolutely rules. I made the best most tender ribs I have ever made And in half the time. I modifed it slightly by cooking the last 15 min on the grill instead of the oven. It gave a nice smokey flavor and auper tender. I could never get the ribs tender enough with my previous recipes but this knocked it out of the park. ribs used to be relegated to a weekend activity but with this recipe i can now manage any night. Thanks a ton
The ribs were amazing. I didn't expect it. I didn't have any cayenne pepper so I ground up crushed red pepper instead and used Sweet Baby Rays bbq sauce. Amazing. Thank you so much. I work full time and I'm in school full time. 3 1/2 hours is just too long.
<p>Turns out amazing every time!</p>
I don't think I'll ever make ribs the long way again. This method is /awesome/!
how about i cooked my baby back ribs today (oven in 1hr) then i keep it in the chiller/freezer with a very good sealer, then after 2 or 3days i decided to serve it then i put it back again in the oven with the sauce. is this ok or a bad idea.? <br>can grill the baby back ribs instead of putting it back again in the oven to cook. <br>thank you for the answer.. :)
speaking as a hardcore BBQ'er this flies in the face of my closely held beliefs about cooking ribs...but with less and less time on my hands I believe this may be an acceptable substitute for time...thanks for sharing!
Haha, high praise!

Wow! 3 hours! My ribs usually take 8 hours! 3 hours sounds almost like fast food! I also have a lasagna recipe that is not done till the Next Day! Maybe we could do a &quot;Recipes that take an inordinate amount of time&quot; thing. It could swing both ways, fast or slow, post your fastest or slowest recipes. Easy 20 hour brisket anyone?
Agreed, I made cr&egrave;me Brule on Friday, and then had to wait 3 hours for it to set in the fridge. Every time you open the fridge door the sweet smell hits you in the face. It was all too much for me, after 45 minutes I took two servings, added the brown sugar, hit it with the blow torch, and devoured them both... Happily we made 4 extra servings for those kinds of occurrences... :P
Thank you so much - that 3 hours wait time always put me off before now.
