Man our family loves some ribs. In the crock pot, smoked on the grill, out of the oven, it doesn't matter, we love ribs. My kids love them so much we at these ribs before and after a volleyball game one night. Hard cider oven-baked BBQ ribs are an easy combination of dry rub, hard cider, and barbecue sauce where the flavors meld together after hours of slow roasting.
These hard cider oven-baked BBQ ribs were dripping with flavor and fall off the bone pork goodness. Served up with a huge helping of my super cheesy crock pot mac and cheese and you will have a happy and full-bellied family.
Hard Cider Oven Baked BBQ Ribs Ingredients
- I used the [amazon_textlink asin='B000WLEIOQ' text='Hog Rub' template='ProductLink' store='farmwifedrink-20' marketplace='US' link_id='d3ed0a99-7c04-4bc5-860d-19d7c2baa0e3']. It is my favorite pork bbq seasoning.
- Use any hard apple cider, but I tend to lean toward's Redd's over Angry Orchard.
How to Make Fall-Off-the-Bone Tender Ribs
Let's begin with the ribs. If your ribs have not had the back membrane removed, go ahead and pull that membrane off. Then grab your favorite BBQ rub.
I place the ribs in a deep lasagna pan. Generously cover the ribs with the BBQ rub of your choosing. My colleague who lived in Kansas City for several years got me hooked on the Cowtown Squeal Hog Rub. I used about 3 tablespoons to cover all the ribs I made.
Next, cover the pan with aluminum foil and put into a 250-degree oven. I slow roasted these ribs four three hours. Pull the ribs out of the oven and transfer them to a jellyroll pan. Brush barbeque sauce of your liking to all the ribs. If you like a little heat in your ribs, I recommend the Chipotle Honey barbecue sauce from Sweet Baby Rays.
Cover the ribs again and then put them back in the oven for another hour or until you are ready to eat. And when they are ready, just try not to eat them standing over the pan as it sits on the stove. Just try.
