BBQ Back Ribs

Very tender and juicy ribs!  So yummy and easy to make!

img_6491The Day before cooking:

  • 1 rack of port back ribs (about 1.5 kg), fully defrosted and pad dry with paper tower
  • Remove membrane on inner side of rib with a pair of kitchen scissors. Begin with the narrow side.


Move your scissors towards the edge to loosen one end first.
Use a piece of paper tower to tightly grab the membrane and slowly pull it out.


It’s really not that hard. I have succeeded on my first time. 🙂


Mix the below spices and rub to ribs on all sides.

  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tsp paprika

Wrap well and put in fridge overnight.

You will also need about 1 cup of BBQ sauce on the day of cooking. I bought mine from Marks and Spencer.


On the day, 2-3 hours before eating:

  • Preheat oven to 150C or 300F.
  • Lay foil and baking sheet on tray.
  • Put rib on the baking sheet, meaty side down (bones curve up), then wrap rib and baking sheet with foil tightly, by rolling and crimping the edges. Edges facing up to seal.


  • Place wrapped rib on tray, place it in the middle rack and bake for 2 to 2.5 hours (or about 1.5 hours for baby back ribs), or until meat is shrinking away from the ends of the bone. Note that after 1 hour of baking, I also put a few baked potato on the tray so they can bake together.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Turn oven to broil temperature.
  • Unwrap rib from foil, remove baking sheet (as it will burn when broil). If the rib is too big and easily fall apart (as it’s so tender), you can cut it into a few parts before the next step.


  • Lay rib on foiled tray and brush on BBQ sauce.
  • Broil (top rack in oven) for about 2 mins until sauce is cooked on and bubbly. Be careful that it will burn easily.
  • Turn ribs over and repeat on the other side.


Both sides done and ready to serve!! Yummy!!

I hope you enjoy this recipe.
