Easy Baby Back Ribs

Portions:
2

Serving Size:
1/2 rack

    Diet Types:
  • Dialysis
  • Gluten-free

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash® Garlic-Herb Seasoning Blend
  • 1-1/2 pounds rack baby back ribs
  • 3 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup barbeque sauce

Preparation

  1. Sprinkle ribs evenly (top and bottom) with Mrs. Dash seasoning.
  2. Coat a top part of broiler pan with cooking spray; place ribs on broiler pan.
  3. Pour water and vinegar into bottom of broiler pan. Put on top part of pan with ribs.
  4. Place aluminum foil securely over ribs, tucking in around edges. (May need 2 pieces of foil to adequately cover.) This allows the ribs to steam.
  5. Bake at 300° F for 3-1/2 to 4 hours— don’t peek, it lets out steam.
  6. Remove foil and brush on barbecue sauce. Cook in oven an additional 10 minutes.

Helpful hints

  • The yield on 1-3/4 pound rack of ribs is approximately 12 ounces of meat.
  • If ribs are not falling apart, try this alternative to Step #6. Remove from broiler pan and place over medium coals; brush on barbecue sauce. Cook 10 minutes, turning once after 5 minutes.
  • For pork sandwiches, skip Step #6, pull meat from bones, place in a bowl and stir in the barbecue sauce. Serve on a bun with 1/4-cup coleslaw.
  • If you are on a gluten-free diet check the barbecue sauce ingredients.
  • For a lower protein diet adjust portion size to match your meal plan.
