2-4 tbsp olive oil
3 pounds of meaty beef ribs (grass-fed)
Liquid smoke, optional
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
1 tbsp onion powder
2 tbsp dark brown sugar, packed
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
2 tsp oregano
Favorite BBQ Sauce – I only used a few tbsp of Sweet Baby Ray’s
1 tsp salt can use smoked salt as well. (I used 1 ½ tsp because we prefer our ribs a little salty)
HOW TO MAKE OVEN-BAKED BBQ BEEF RIBS
Step 1: After rinsing the ribs, completely dry them with paper towels. If using, douse the ribs with liquid smoke, rubbing it in. Then, coat the ribs lightly with olive oil.
Step 2: Combine the seasonings and generously sprinkle them over the ribs (both front and back). Into the ribs, massage the spices, adding extra olive oil to assist distribute the spices well if needed.
Step 3: In a large ziplock bag or covered bowl, place the ribs. Put in the fridge to marinate the ribs for an hour or two.
Step 4: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 250 degrees F.
Step 5: On a foil-lined baking tray, place the ribs in one layer. On top, add another piece of foil, creating a pouch for the ribs to cook in. Tightly seal the edges. On the middle rack of the preheated oven, place the baking tray and bake the ribs for about 3 1/2 -4 hours. Make sure to check on the ribs after the 3 1/2 hour mark. Drain the excess fat once the ribs are done and brush with BBQ sauce.
Step 6: For a sticky sauce, broil the ribs.
Step 7: Serve immediately. Enjoy!
