Make a delicious dish with the ribs recipe below!


  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds English-cut short ribs
  • 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce, or to taste


Step 1. To make the rub, add the brown sugar, garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, cumin, and salt in a small cup. Mix in the oil until you have a crumbly paste. Rub the spice mixture all over the ribs and set aside to rest for 1–2 hours at room temperature or up to overnight in the refrigerator. Bring the ribs to room temperature before cooking if refrigerated.

Step 2. Preheat the oven to 121°C with the oven rack in the center spot. Arrange the ribs in a single layer on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Cover the ribs with another layer of foil and crimp the foil sheets together to form a packet. 

Step 3. Bake for 3 hours, then check the ribs: they should be tender, and the internal temperature should be 95°C at the thickest section. Bake for another 30-60 minutes if they aren't done.

Step 4. Remove the ribs from the oven when they are tender and preheat the broiler. Return the ribs to the oven and broil for 5 minutes or until crisp on the bottom. Wash the ribs gently with barbecue sauce using a pastry brush.
