Just to recap I’m in Orlando visiting my parents, enjoying the weather… NOT!! It’s been really cold these past few days, not as cold as Wisconsin but definitely not what I had in mind when I packed my bag. My swimsuit is sad =(
Don’t worry I’m having a great time though. A couple of nights ago, I went to International Dr with my family, it’s a stretch between Universal Orlando Resort and Seaworld, it was full of nightlife and entertainment.
One of the attractions that got my attention was WonderWorks, an amusement park that it’s upsidedown, we couldn’t get in but if you are in town be sure to visit it.
So I promised you a recipe for the best BBQ ribs I’ve had in my life, this one is from iowagirleats (love her blog), be prepared to be amazed.
EASY BAKED RIBS
2 – 2-1/2lbs baby back ribs (could use spare ribs)
1/4 – 1/3 cup BBQ sauce
For the spice rub:
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Mix spices together in a small bowl then rub into both sides of the ribs, wrap in saran wrap, and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight. Preheat oven to 250 degrees then line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick spray. Place ribs on top then cover tightly with more foil and bake for 3-1/2 hours. Remove foil, drain any excess liquid from the pan, and then brush BBQ sauce on top and bake for 30 more minutes, or until top is slightly caramelized. Tip: If using a larger rack of ribs, add 30 minutes baking time per pound past 2-1/2lbs.
So that’s how mine looked like, they tasted even better. I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory & Brown Sugar Barbeque Sauce and less cayenne pepper, because I don’t like them to spicy but feel free to use as much as your mouth allows you.
