Louis–Style Ribs

Louis–Style Ribs

St. Louis–style ribs just might be the best kind of ribs. For the traditional style, use spareribs and ask your butcher to cut them “St. Louis style”. This simply means that the breastbone will be cut off and the ribs will be in a rectangular shape. To get REALLY traditional, you’ll want to smoke your ribs, but we opted to bake ours in the oven for convenience. Oven-baked ribs still get perfectly tender and will be falling right off the bone!

YIELDS: 6 SERVINGS
PREP TIME: 0 HOURS 10 MINS
TOTAL TIME: 3 HOURS 35 MINS

INGREDIENTS:

 

3 lb. spareribs

2 tbsp. brown sugar

2 tsp. kosher salt

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. oregano

1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. mustard powder

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

4 tbsp. butter, cut into cubes

1 c. barbecue sauce

DIRECTIONS:

 

Preheat oven to 300° and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. If your ribs have a thin membrane over the bones on the backside, remove by carefully sliding a knife under the membrane and then peeling it away.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and seasonings. Rub mixture all over ribs until well coated.

Evenly distribute butter cubes over ribs, wrap tightly in foil, and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake until very tender, about 2 1/2 hours.

Switch oven to broil, unwrap ribs, and brush all over with barbecue sauce. Place back on baking sheet and broil until sauce starts to caramelize, 5 minutes.
