Baby Back Ribs

4th of July is right around the corner! This means grilling, barbecue, and fireworks :) An independence day tradition at my mom's house is baby back ribs! She slathers the ribs in barbecue and grills them to perfection! All the while singing the baby-back ribs song from Austin Powers :) Sadly, I don't have a grill in my home, so I am including an oven recipe!

Baby Back Ribs
1 rack Pork Loin Back Ribs
1 tbsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 tbsp Garlic Powder
17 oz bottle Barbecue Sauce
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Rinse the ribs with cold water to remove excess blood.
3. Place ribs onto a sheet pan and sprinkle on both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
4. Bake for about 20 minutes, flipping the ribs halfway.
5. In the meantime, mix sauce, honey, and sugar together to incorporate.
6. Spoon and spread the mixture onto the ribs after the first 20 minutes. Flip after about 10 minutes, and then coat the other side the same way. 
7. Allow the sauce to thicken slightly on each side and then repeat the process.
8. Remove from the oven and slice the ribs into individual slices.
9. Lay the ribs down on their sides and coat the sides with sauce. Allow to bake for another 5-10 minutes and repeat on the other side, so that you use the rest of the sauce.
10. Turn off the oven and allow the sauce to glaze over in the heat. This will ensure that the barbecue flavor seeps into the meat.
11. Once the sauce glazes over, serve. That process should take about 10 minutes.

If you don't have a grill, don't worry! You can make delicious barbecue style food in the oven :) These ribs also can easily be grilled, with a similar process. The time that it cooks should be slower, and sauce should be spread more often. Once cooked, slice and allow the ribs to get a glaze in the oven.
