Whole baby back ribs

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Bake cook time: 90 minutes
Servings for: 4-6 People

Dry seasoning ingredients:
7 Tablespoon brown sugar
1-2 Tablespoon chili powder (ground red pepper)
1 Tablespoon salt
Garlic powder (if preferred)
Ginger powder (if preferred)
Peppercorn powder (if preferred)

Sauce ingredients:
6 Tablespoon light  soy sauce
3 Tablespoon cooking wine
3 Tablespoon minced garlic
3 Tablespoon water
2 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoon honey

Cooking directions:

  1. Cut the whole baby-back ribs into two pieces from the middle. Mix the dry seasoning ingredients well in a small bowl. Spread it evenly over the ribs and rub it well to enhance the flavor. Use foil to completely wrap the ribs, seal it tight and leave it in refrigerator for up to 2 hours.
  1. Stir sauce ingredients in a bowl, open up only one side of the foil wrap, pour in the sauce under the ribs. Seal it again and make sure it’s completely sealed without cracks and holes. It is very important to keep the moisture inside. Put the ribs on the baking pan.
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Put the ribs baking pan into oven, Bake about 70-90 minutes, depending on the rib size, or until the meat falls apart. Put into the dish, slice the rib and serve while hot. If desired, the remaining gravy can be poured on the ribs.
  1. If crispy outer crust is preferred, open up foil and broil for 5-10 minutes.

You also can try to use the High Pressure Cooker to cook the ribs. So you don’t have to use the foil to wrap the ribs. Just put the ribs( after 1 step ) with the Sauce ingredients into the cooker, and cook about 30 minutes.
