Fall Off The Bone Ribs

So I’ve kinda been a little famous among our friends for my ribs. They always get super excited when we have game night or bonfires and they know that we are making these, they pretty much line right now and rush to my house because they literally are irresistible.

These ribs are baby back ribs that are coated in a dry rub then baked creating a juicy and tender meat. They are then lathered in a honey bbq sauce and broiled for about 5 minutes making sure that sauce is coated right to the meat.

Now tell me that these Fall Off The Bone Ribs don’t sound amazing.

How To Make Fall Off The Bone Ribs

HOW LONG DO YOU COOK RIBS IN THE OVEN?

For these particular ribs we used baby back and we cooked then at 300 degrees for 3 hours. If you’re looking at spare ribs you are looking at a little longer time. 

These Fall Off The Bone Ribs go amazing with all sorts of side dishes. Potato salad, corn on the cob, salad, fresh fruit, macaroni and cheese. You really can’t go wrong when it comes to making something that pairs really well with these.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH RIB MEAT?

So the one thing that WE always do with these ribs is turn them into sliders/sandwiches. We top then with some grilled onions and inhale them.

We drizzle with some more bbq sauce as needed but this is a delicious way to enjoy them. Another way we use leftover meat is to make BBQ Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese. 

Trust me with this Mac and cheese you won’t ever want anything else, it is so flavorful, the bbq sauce and the cheese together are a legit epic combination that you’ll quickly become addicted to.

HOW TO MAKE A DRY RUB:

We make our own dry rub for these ribs but if you have some that you like to use then by all means use it, but our rub consists of:

  • Brown sugar
  • Paprika
  • Dry mustard
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Cumin
  • Chili powder

Once they are done cooking you then slather then in some bbq sauce. We usually use a brown sugar bbq sauce then mix it with a little honey to make a honey bbq sauce and it really compliments the dry rub really well. To finish these off we sprinkle with a little parsley and go to town!

  1. These ribs are 1st class with little work to prepare! Perfection EVERY time in the oven(coming from a guy who loves his grill).Fall off the bone?? Umm ya! You literally look at the bone and its like the meat knows what to do! So tender,so juicy,so good! Highly recommend!!

  2. I haven’t made ribs in years. They intimidate me sometimes, but I don’t know why! I need to make them again soon.

  3. I love ribs! They are such a great summer meal option. I am looking forward to cooking out, eating outside and relaxing. These would be great to make too!

  4. This is my second time trying the Fall of the Bone Ribs in the Oven, these were delicious my first time. Everyone enjoyed them!!!

  5. I made these, and my SO pronounced them “superior” to the ribs being sold at our neighborhood (in Chicago) Ribfest. He said he had never tasted such ribs like this, that literally fell off the bone! Rub, Wrap and bake, and a little time on the grill was all it took. Thanks again! The extra meat was used the following day, in ribmeat quesadillas!

  6. These ribs are DELICIOUS!!! The prep is super easy and the results and fantastic. This was the first recipe I tried and after this I may not look for another. Definitely set the standard. Thanks!!!

  7. Most Excellent! Raining outside so inside the oven was perfect. Totally tasty, fall off the bone, literally, with easy directions and hardly any clean up

  8. Hi Alli,
    I have always enjoyed and used a recipe my mother gave me. Your recipe looks superior and we are going to make them tonight. I will post another comment after we have had our dinner. I have one question, do you have a recipe for the brown sugar BBQ sauce that you mention in the last step of your recipe that you could share?
    We can hardly wait to have dinner tonight.

  9. Never made ribs before, these were fool proof, easy and delicious. Left off the honey and bbq sauce because husband isn’t eating carbs. Great recipe!

  10. Hi Alli,
    These are without a doubt the best ribs I have ever made and eaten. My husband and I loved them so much we have had them twice more since trying the recipe originally. I sent the recipe to my son. Coincidentally he was defrosting a large rack of ribs when he received my email. I am anxious to know what he thought. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

  11. Ribs are actually how I got my kids on board with meat when they were younger. Nothing like them! These look outstanding.

  12. I currently have these in the oven to finish on the grill tomorrow. Like a few, above, I don’t know why I am ever intimidated by the rib when I am a humbly good cook…but I am. It’s like making Mac and cheese….the most simplistic things are my challenge, like a tartar, or something a little more unexpected. Perhaps that’s why. Expected! Lightbulb moment!

    I hope these rock out! I’ll post tomorrow if they do!
