Easy, Melt In Your Mouth Oven Baked Ribs Recipe
Prep Time: 5 min | Cook Time: 2 hours | Serves: 6
+ 2 to 2 1/2 pounds (1 kg) pork baby back ribs
+ 1/4 cup whole-spelt flour
+ 1 tsp garlic powder
+ 1 tsp onion powder
+ 1 tsp sea salt
+ 2 tsp dried thyme
+ 2 tsp dried oregano
+ 2 tsp paprika
+ 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
+ 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Tamari and ginger sauce:
+ 1/4 cup tamari sauce
+ 1 garlic clove, minced
+ 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
+ 2 tbsp coconut sugar
+ 1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350ºF / 180º C. Remove the membrane that’s located on the back of the rib rack and cut between the bones into individual ribs. Mix the dry rub ingredients in a small bowl and generously apply a coating of dry rub to all sides of the ribs. Spread the ribs evenly on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes, until golden.
Reduce oven temperature to 300ºF / 150ºC. Mix the tamari and ginger sauce ingredients in a medium bowl, brush the ribs with half the sauce and bake for 45 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven, flip ribs over, brush with the remaining sauce and bake until tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside, about 45 to 60 more minutes. Enjoy!
