Easy and delicious oven roasted pork ribs! There was a time when cooking ribs was intimidating. Not any more! This recipe for oven roasted pork ribs is the easiest cooking method, ever!
Dry Rub Vs. Wet Marinade
For many years I used to think that wet marinades were the way to go for more flavorful ribs. A dry rub and good cooking method works just as well! A dry rub is essentially different ground spices mixed together. The skies the limit on the combinations one can mix for all kinds of recipes. Don’t get me wrong, I love saucy, sticky ribs too. For this recipe, I knew I wanted to serve with a spicy salsa and tortillas.
It’s More Than Just Sharing A Recipe!
Sharing recipes is great! But, for me it’s much more than that. I want to teach my followers different cooking techniques that work! For some, cooking can be stressful and intimidating. I want to be able to teach everyone how we all can enjoy delicious home cooked meals. Traditional Mexican recipes are my passion, but without the cooking methods, tricks and techniques they may not be as good. They are basic learning tools that can be used in other ways for different recipes too. For example, I would use this dry rub on chicken too. Same cooking method as the ribs. Hmmm, I think I just came up with my next recipe, lol!
