Slow Cooked Baby Back Ribs

My house is filled with the aroma of baby back ribs.. it has been driving my family crazy since 3 pm still hours from dinner time.  I made these little beauties and served them with baked potato and fresh green beans.

Becky’s Slow Cooked Baby Back Ribs

Serves 6

  • 2 slabs of baby back ribs (quality ones!)
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper and garlic flakes
  • Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory and Brown Sugar BBQ sauce


Cut the baby back ribs into sections.  I cut them with 2-4 bones that way the ones with smaller appetites had smaller pieces to choose from.  I seasoned the meaty part with a sprinkling of kosher salt.  I have a pepper mill that has pepper and garlic in it.  I seasoned the ribs with a few grinds of the mill.  I packed 3-4 sections in a long strip of foil and wrapped the foil around the ribs and placed them on a cookie sheet.  Repeat with remaining rib sections.  I had three packages of foil wrapped ribs next to each other one one cookie sheet.

Bake in a 350 F preheated oven.  After one hour reduce the heat to 275 and continue baking for 2 more hours.  I turned the heat up to 350 again so I could bake my potatoes at the same time and baked them for 1 1/2 hours until the potatoes were cooked through. (See below how I prepare my baked potatoes)

I removed the finished potatoes to a serving platter and allowed them to cool a bit.  I opened the packets of ribs, but left the ribs in the foil.  I poured some barbecue sauce on them.   I set the oven to broil (high heat) and placed the rack about 6 inches from the elements.  I broiled the ribs for about 10 minutes.  Now they were ready!

My husband really liked this preparation of the ribs.  I like to throw them in the crock pot, but they do tend to get a little soggy in that method of preparation.  I have to agree with him (the smell of the ribs would be just as strong in a crock pot).

Baked Potatoes

Serves 5

  • 5 baked potatoes, scrubbed and left damp

Sprinkle the potatoes with kosher salt and wrap in foil.  Bake for 1 1/2 hours at 350 or 1 hour at 400.

Serve with butter, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and bacon bits if desired.

I love to cook, as a young child I enjoyed spending time with my mom in the kitchen and that love has grown into a passion. I started this blog to share my favorite recipes with friends and family and have enjoyed seeing it grow beyond those boundaries.
