Homemade Rib Rub
  • 4 pounds spare ribs, membrane removed (you have to check out the amazing quality meats over at Home Grown Cow)
  • Rib rub (see below)
  • ½ yellow onion, sliced thin
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • water
  • 8 ounces barbecue sauce of your choice
Ingredients for Rib Rub (we love to get organic, non-irradiated spices and herbs from here)
  • 5 Tbs brown sugar (organic and non-GMO like this)
  • ½ cup paprika
  • 4 Tbl oregano
  • 3 Tbl coffee grounds
  • 4 tsp salt (unrefined, real salt like this)
  • 1 Tbl pepper
  1. Combine all rub ingredients well
  2. Gently rub into ribs and let rest so that flavors work into meat at least 1 hour (this can also be done one day before cooking)
  3. Heat oven to 325
  4. In a ½ inch to 1 inch deep baking sheet, add onion, garlic and enough water to cover the bottom of the sheet. Place a baking rack on top of the baking sheet and add the ribs to the rack
  5. Loosely cover ribs with foil and bake for 90 minutes covered
  6. Remove ribs from oven and remove foil cover. Brush barbecue sauce over the ribs and place back in the oven for another 90 minutes, uncovered
  7. When the ribs easily twist off the rack, raise oven rack and broil for five minutes
  8. Enjoy right away!
