We Don't All Have A BBQ for Memorial Day: Oven Baked Ribs

Just as my title states, we don't all have BBQ grills at our disposal. I live in an apartment with a tiny backyard. It's unclear if a BBQ would be a welcome addition to said yard, so I don't have one at the moment.

These oven baked ribs make me very happy. They taste great and don't require much work at all. In fact, I think these are even better than making ribs on the BBQ because they come out super tender and no worry about them charring on the outside while being under cooked on the inside.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

Happy Memorial Day non-BBQ weekend to you!
