Recipes for Lazy People : Oven Baked Baby Back Ribs

by [email protected]



I don’t know what’s up with me lately, but all i’ve been craving and dying to eat is meat. And since autumn/winter season is just a laze around and do nothing but being a burrito blanket time of the year for me, I decided to come with an “as hands-off as possible” dish. Which leads us to this amazing, fall off the bone delicious baby back ribs recipe today. 

Sure, i might need to prep a little before hand, but after that all i need to do is literally just stick that baby in the oven, let the smell of meat permeate my tiny apartment and voila, dinner is ready. 

I mean honestly, when it comes to wanting to eat a good and yummy dish while being lazy, i’d say that baby back ribs is definitely hard to top on that laziness + yummy scale.

  • 1 rack of baby back pork ribs 
  • 1 tsp of mustard 
  • 1 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper 
  • 1 cup of barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup of sugar (white/brown)
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder 
  •  salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat over to 250 F (120 °C).
  2. Mix all the ingredients listed but barbecue sauce in a bowl until combined. 
  3. Place ribs meat-side down on aluminum foil. Prick back of rib rack several times with a knife.
  4. Generously apply coating of dry rub to all sides of rib rack.
  5. With rib rack meat-side down, fold foil around it to create a tight seal.
  6. Transfer to sheet pan.
  7. Bake in the oven until tender for about 1 hour and 45 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and let the ribs cool down for 15 minutes.
  9. Increase oven temperature to 350 F (175 degrees C).
  10. Drain and discard any accumulated juices and fat.
  11. Brush barbecue sauce on all sides of rack.
  12. Place rack meat-side up and return to oven, without the foil this time. Bake for another 10 minutes, remove from oven, and brush another layer of barbecue sauce on meat-side only. Do this 5 times, for a total of 50 minutes baking time.
  13. Cut rack into individual rib segments, serve while warm with barbecue sauce. 


Additional Notes :


  • Feel free to opt out using sugar, as the barbecue sauce will already have sugar included in the sauce.
  • For those of you who are diabetic, feel free to substitute it with monk fruit sugar (zero calories/carbs) or agave (low GI). However, be aware that monk fruit sugar is 150 to 200 times sweeter than sugar, as the ratio suggest to use 1/3 cup monk fruit sugar for 1 cup sugar.
