Oven Bag BBQ Pork Ribs

I actually made this a couple of weeks ago but just never got around to blogging about it. Ribs were on sale at our local grocery store and we managed to buy a nice looking full rack of ribs for under $7! It was such a good deal.

We also bought a bottle of Stubb's Smokey Mesquite Bar-B-Q Sauce to be used as a marinade. Stubb's originated from Austin, TX and it's really really good. A sweet sauce with just the right combination of molasses and mesquite.

I cut the full rack of ribs into half (it's too large to fit into a large Ziploc bag), placed them in a large Ziploc bag and poured in the BBQ sauce to marinade the ribs. I left it to marinade for about 24 hours in the refrigerator.

When it's time to cook the ribs, place some flour into the oven bag, shake it and make sure that it evenly coats the bag. This is to ensure that the ribs doesn't stick to the bag while cooking.

Put the bag in a large baking dish and place the ribs it.

Tie up the bag and make sure you poke some holes in it with a knife (it's to allow steam to escape while cooking).

Pop it in a 350F oven for about 45 minutes.

Now it's time to prepare the sauce to baste the ribs later on. Scoop some dark brown sugar into a bowl.

Add in some BBQ sauce.

Pour in some Ginger Ale and mix all the ingredients together.

After 45 minutes, remove the ribs from the oven and cut open the bag. Baste the ribs with the sauce. Put it back into the oven for about 10 minutes. Continue to baste the ribs at 10 minute intervals for another 2 times.

Here it is! Tender and juicy BBQ ribs that just falls off the bones. Cooking it in an oven bag is the best way to ensure that you have juicy ribs that just falls of the bones.

I served the ribs with Mashed Potatoes and Italian Green Beans with Bacon. It's really easy to make. Just brown the bacon, remove it and drain away some of the oil from the pan. Add in the Italian green beans, stir fry it for a bit and return the bacon to the pan. Sprinkle on some black pepper, garlic salt and Parmesan cheese. Just continue to stir fry everything together for couple more minutes and it's done! There you go. A simple but yummy Southern style dinner.
