Best Baked BBQ Ribs Recipe: 4-Ingredient Tender Pork Rib Recipe

Sinking your teeth into the perfect barbecue rib – moist, juicy, tender – is something you don't soon forget. Smoked and barbecued ribs done on an outside grill are delicious, but sometimes you don't want to be outside or have other things to do while dinner cooks. This easy oven-baked barbecue rib recipe is just what you need.

This baked BBQ ribs recipe requires just four ingredients: baby back ribs or pork spareribs, onion powder, garlic powder and barbecue sauce. The ribs are seasoned, wrapped in foil and baked in the oven for about one hour and 15 minutes to juicy, tender perfection. 

You can use whatever barbecue sauce you like best. Or, if you want to change things up, try a different sauce like char sui sauce, Korean barbecue sauce or even fruit preserves.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes

  • 1 rack baby back ribs or pork spareribs (about 3 to 3 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 bottle (8 ounces) barbecue sauce

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the ribs onto a sheet of aluminum foil on a baking sheet. Season both sides with salt and pepper, then sprinkle on the garlic powder and onion powder.
  2. Wrap the ribs tightly in the foil.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 1 hour. Uncover the ribs, cover them with barbecue sauce and let them bake about 10 to 15 minutes more.
