I tried a new method to make slow roasted pork ribs and was very satisfied with the ease of the method and the final product. The meat falls off the bones. I made my own rub and the ingredients are listed below.
5 lbs. Pork loin back ribs
2 Tablespoons Paprika
2 Tablespoons Smoked Paprika
1 Tablespoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
1 Tablespoon Black Pepper
1 or more teaspoons of Cayenne (depending on your heat tolerance)
Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
Mix all the rub ingredients together well.
Place the 2 slabs of ribs on plastic food wrap on a heavy duty sheet pan. (12inch x 17inch)
Using all the rub generously coat both sides of the ribs.
Wrap the ribs securely with plastic food wrap.
Place in preheated oven for 3 hours or longer.
Remove from oven and let them sit for 15-20 minutes.
Remove plastic wrap carefully.
Serve with your favorite barbecue sauce if desired and side dishes of your choice. We enjoyed them without sauce.
Note: There are different answers about the safety of using plastic food wrap in the oven. Some say up to 400 degrees is OK and some say only up to 375 Degrees. The plastic food wrap worked well at this low temperature.
