Slow-Cooked BBQ Pork Ribs (in the oven!)

I have a hard and fast rule when it comes to ribs.

Only Eat With Family, or Friends-Who-Are-Practically-Family.

That way strangers aren’t subjected to the sight of me slathering rib sauce down my face/chin/neck/ or the noise of tearing, biting, chewing and grunting as I get all primal (there’s just something about meat on the bone that brings out my inner cavewoman).

Thankfully Hubs is not easily intimidated. A weaker man would’ve fled the scene a long time ago.

Slow-Cooked BBQ Pork Ribs

  • 15 pc pork spare ribs
  • 2 tbsps ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tbsp celery salt
  • 2 1/2 cups BBQ sauce
  1. Cut the ribs into three portions (I chopped mine into about 5 ribs a piece).
  2. Combine the cumin, black pepper, paprika, oregano, chili powder and celery salt. Liberally rub into the meat (on both sides – be generous!).
  3. Wrap the meat in foil or clingfilm then let chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
  4. Place the ribs into suitable baking trays and brush with the BBQ sauce. Heat the oven to 170C. Put the ribs in the oven for 4 hours, basting with the sauce roughly every 30-45 minutes.
  5. For the last 30 minutes, chop the meat into individual ribs and pour over the remaining sauce.
