Smoky BBQ Pork Spareribs Cooked Right In The Oven

Ribs or spareribs? No matter what you call them, the recipe is the same (spoiler alert: it's also delicious). In the end, what looks like perfectly plated high-end cuisine is actually quite simple to make and requires just a little bit of patience. All you need to get this party started is a well seasoned marinade, a decent barrage of barbecue sauce, and a bottle of beer.

You'll Need:

  • 4–5 lbs pork spareribs
  • 16 fl oz beer

For the marinade:

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

For the BBQ sauce:

  • 10 oz ketchup
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp chili sauce
  • 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 7 fl oz pineapple juice
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp salt

Here's How:

1. Place the pork spareribs in a large baking dish, add the marinade ingredients, and massage them into the meat. Cover the ribs and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or even better, overnight.

2. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Add the BBQ sauce ingredients to a large pan over medium heat, stir together, and let cook for 5 minutes. Pour the BBQ sauce and beer over the ribs.

3. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and cook the ribs for 3 hours. Serve the BBQ spareribs with corn on the cob and potato wedges for a country-style feast.

No need to bust out the grill in September — now you'll finally be able to enjoy some good comfort food during the colder months. We bet that if you knew ribs were this easy to cook indoors, you would have been doing it all along!
