I have this REALLY old recipe from my sister in law for barb baby back ribs, which my husband LOVES. So I am trying to make them for him. I, however, am a vegetarian, and I know NOTHING about how to cook ribs!
The recipe is really confusing, so I thought maybe someone here could help me figure it out...???
I seasoned the ribs (3lb rack) last night, and put back in refrigerator.
Says to preheat oven to 350
Place in roasting pan, fill 1/2 way with water. Cover for 1 hour. Reduce heat to 325 for 3-4 hours. Cover ribs with tinfoil tightly and place in oven for about 4-6 hours. (Ribs should be fork tender - literally fall down and apart off of fork). Remove ribs from oven and reduce heat to 300. Cover ribs in honey and brown sugar - enough to coat but not enough to drip and run over sides. Sprinkle brown sugar over ribs - just enough to stick to ribs and cover them. Pour over enough barb sauce to taste. Return to oven, bake between 1/2 hour to 45 min (un-covered) Serve immediately.
So...when I put the ribs in the roasting pan initially, should I put them in tinfoil? Do I just let them soak up the water in the pan? This has gotten me so confused, and if you could only see the original recipe...there are notes and directions ALL over the place. looks like she corrected it, and moved the order around, and crossed things out, etc.. It's impossible to figure out! Please help!!!!!
I know that this may sound elementary to some of you. I apologize. I am just trying to make my husband happy by cooking his favorite recipe ever. And we no longer speak to my sister in law, so i can't ask her.
