Oven baked BBQ Ribs

Ribs must be on the menu in a few of our kitchens this week. Judy posted a delicious looking rib recipe this past week as well. Here is another melt in your mouth rib recipe. I often add 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 2-3 pieces each to the pan during the last hour of cooking. This is so simple, but I guarantee they are so tender. You can easily half or double this recipe.
3-4 pounds pork back ribs (cut into 3-4 rib sections)
1 500ml bottle BBQ sauce (I like to use Bulls Eye regular)
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup minced onion (optional)
Place ribs in a 9x13 foil lined pan
Stir together remaining ingredients and pour over ribs.
Cover with foil and bake in 300 oven for 2 1/2 -3 hours. (baste once or twice)
Turn heat up to 350 and remove foil. If there is allot of grease at this point spoon some of it off, but don't take out any of the BBQ sauce.
**if you are adding chicken to the pan add it now and place the pieces around the outsides of the pan around the ribs***
Continue to bake for 1 hour. Baste half way through. If meat is getting too dark cover loosely with foil for last 20 minutes.
Some good sides: baked beans, coleslaw, fries, cornbread.


  1. Wow...that DOES look good! Adding chicken too...interesting. Thanks for the post. Making me hungry although it is well past the dinner hour as I comment here.

  2. Mmmm..chicken and ribs are very good together..a great recipe Kathy.

  3. chicken and ribs all in one pot, that is a great idea......this is one of my favorite meals and the recipe looks really good. i have never added orange juice to the sauce, simple and good... yum.

  4. Can I come to YOUR house to eat? Oh my! This is my hubby's favorite meal! I'll take some chicken! YUM!

  5. Another great looking rib recipe. I needed to step out of my box and make some ribs soon. We were raised Kosher and my mother never prepared Pork. We aren't Kosher anymore.

  6. Hmmmm.. Kathy, I wish that plate was served to me! It looks soo mouthwatering good !
    I love ribs but never added orange juice....I'm going to try it!

  7. These are so good . We had them for dinner tonight and they were a big hit!!. I had had a busy day with different things and loved the fact I put them in the oven at 2pm and by 6pm they were just perfect. We did the whole things with the beans the coleslaw and the cornbread. Everyone needs to try these they are so easy, tasty and economical.
