Recipe Recommendation: Oven-Baked Spare Ribs
A low temperature and long cooking time turns out perfect spare ribs every time. For those who have never cooked ribs before, this recipe is an excellent place to start and virtually foolproof-- in fact, the longer you cook your ribs in these conditions, the more tender they become! The dry rub recipe is a great foundation but it's flexible-- don't have mustard seed? That's okay. Don't like white pepper? No problem. Customize the rub as you please, but definitely don't leave it out-- cooking the ribs with a generous coating of rub yields deeply flavorful results. You may find that you don't even need to break out the BBQ sauce! Hungry yet? Let Serious Eats guide you to hog heaven: Serious Eats Oven Barbecue Pork Ribs.
