Memphis-Style Baby Back Ribs
  • Cook Time
  • Prep Time
  • 8Servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons sweet paprika
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 racks pork baby back ribs (about 5 pounds total)
  • 2 8 ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 6 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees . In a small bowl, whisk together the paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Run a paring knife down the length of the bone side of each rack to split the skin, then season all over with the rub.

Arrange the ribs, meaty side down, in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast, turning halfway through, until very tender, about 3 hours.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring the tomato sauce, onion, vinegar, brown sugar and hot sauce to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Cut the racks into individual ribs and serve with the sauce on the side.
