TEXAS RIBS OVEN RECIPE
Choosing the type Ribs for dinner
In Texas, you will find both Pork and Beef ribs commonly, some places just say ribs and you get what ever they have that day. We hope you enjoy this recipe, it has been made at the expense of a lot of cooks gone bad.
There is a difference between the two:
The Beef Ribs are less expensive, contain massive bones, and do not have quite as much meat as you might expect. It is my opinion the beef has a better natural flavor, however you cannot get the beef rib meat quite as tender as you can pork. I recommend that you try a batch of each and see which one you perfer. Normally, since the meat has more flavor I go with a less sweet sauce,therefore not covering up the meat. You do end up with a nice large handle to hold your food which is neat, small children may have more trouble eating the beef as opposed to the pork.
The pork ribs come in two different cuts, the flagship pork loin or "baby back" cut and the spare rib cut. If money is not a factor always go for the baby back as this will yield the higher quality meat without the fat/veins. The Baby back ribs have small bones, and the meat is very high quality and tender. and spaced evenly among the whole cut. The cut further down the rib is called the Spare Rib, The Spare ribs have a fold and more fat inside the meat. You can also find veins occasionally which gross some people out. You can still find some great meat on a spare rib and at half the cost of baby backs.
Rub for off the scale flavor
2. Rub both wet and dry components heavily over all surfaces.
Marinate the ribs
3. Marinate for atleast 24 hours, for best flavor, up to 2 or 3 days in the refrigerator. And we wait......sorry, but the best things come to those who wait.
Use foil packs when cooking
Cook in the Oven
Finishing them up
6. Add your favorite
barbecue sauce, and finish over hot stovetop or charcoal grill. This adds
the grilled look and a little bark for added flavor.
