Easy Pork Spare Ribs - Oven Edition

When we started renting apartments again, it was against many rules to have a barbecue on the balcony. This meant that I could no longer slow cook ribs over the hot coals all day like I wanted. I missed barbecue ribs so needed to somehow replicate it in an apartment atmosphere. So here is what I came up with. **NOTE:  I put these in before bed and take them out when I wake up and put them in the refrigerator until I get home from work then finish up the rest. I warm them while I caramelize the sauce.

Notes:

I put these in before bed and take them out when I wake up and put them in the refrigerator until I get home from work then finish up the rest. I warm them while I caramelize the sauce.

I used a local Chicago rub called Uncle Dougies Downright Tasty Rub. I picked it up one day and it sounded downright tasty! And it was! Since I lived in Austin for a few years, I had to use the famous Stubb’s Original Barbecue Sauce to coat the ribs.

I kept the drippings from the ribs. I freeze it and use it when I need a pork stock. Usually I use it for my paella.
