No one can mess with me when it comes to making ribs in the oven.
You don’t have to until its warm out to have BBQ ribs. With these Oven Baked Pork Ribs, you can have them all year long.
I am out to change the perception of pork in this world. I understand if you have religious or other reasons that you’ve experienced to make you stay away from “swine”. I respect a lot of those beliefs and admire those who stick with the practice of not eating pork. However, for the rest of us who enjoy pork from time to time, you are going to absolutely love this recipe. This is one of those recipes that you can put in the oven and forget about for a few hours. Another great thing about this recipe is that you can add your favorite rub and BBQ sauce to make the ribs to be whatever your heart desires! Let’s take a pause for the cause and take a moment and discuss pork for a minute.
I can understand how people think that pork is not good for you due to the sodium content that the meat carries particularly. However, the market of pork is more than bacon! There are leaner cuts of pork that is suitable for just about any diet and lifestyle. Of course, with just about any cut of meat from any animal, there are some parts of an animal that tend to be a little fattier than others. The ribs on a pig can be one of those cuts. Although I am all about making healthier choices and I want people to be well informed of their options, I also think its important to know that now and then you can enjoy a steak with a little fat, a dish made with bacon, Fried Chicken, and now Oven Baked Pork Ribs. In fact, if you would like some ideas on healthier pork chop recipes you can check out my pork chop recipes below. By viewing these recipes I am confident that you will come to appreciate and, maybe, have a new found respect for how you can enjoy pork.
