Baby Back Ribs

Inspired by LongHorn Steakhouse’s Executive Chefs


· 2 racks of baby back ribs

· 2 tablespoons of canola oil

· 2 cups of BBQ sauce of your choice

· 2 tablespoons of kosher salt

· 2 tablespoons of cracked pepper

· 1 tablespoon of granulated garlic powder

· 1 tablespoon of granulated onion powder


· You can find prepared and cut racks of ribs at your local butcher or grocery store. If you have a full rack of ribs, we suggest you cut them in half if you’re cooking in an oven in your home kitchen or on a standard gas grill.

· Season ribs with salt, pepper, granulated onion powder and granulated garlic powder.

· Lay ribs meat-side down on a baking sheet with an elevated edge. Add one cup of water and cover the sheet pan completely in aluminum foil.

· Bake in 325-degree oven for approx. 2 ½ hours or until meat is tender enough to be pulled from the bone.

· Chill the baby back ribs in the refrigerator for about one hour so that the meat doesn’t fall apart.

· Apply canola oil to grill grates and heat to medium-high.

· Place ribs on grill meat-side up and baste with BBQ sauce.

· Grill for approx. 3 minutes.

· Flip so meat-side is down, and grill for 3 minutes. Apply BBQ sauce to the back of the ribs.

· Grill ribs until BBQ sauce has started to caramelize and meat has started to get crisp edges.

· Let ribs rest for 5 minutes then brush with BBQ sauce before cutting them into 1 and 2-bone pieces.

· Serve with remaining BBQ sauce on the side for dipping.

Recipe serves four.
