Delicious, tender Fall Off The Bone Grilled Pork Ribs are the perfect meal for low key summer entertaining.
Rubbed with a mild homemade spice blend, slow roasted in the oven and finished on the grill, this foolproof method ensures perfect ribs every time. Fully cooked ahead of time it’s a perfect summer entertaining meal idea!
I love slow cooked pork. Pork Ribs, Chile Verde, Puerto Rican Pork Roast, Pulled Pork.. you name it, it’s on the top of my list of favorite foods. What I really love about this rib method is that it can be completely made ahead of time and quickly finished on the grill. A perfect meal for entertaining. When hosting a party I plan meals that allow the kitchen work to be complete and cleaned up when guests arrive so I can spend my time chatting and cocktailing rather than babysitting dinner and doing dishes.
Fall Off The Bone Grilled Pork Ribs are also one of my go-to camping meals. Prepare up to the point of putting on the grill and refrigerate the roasted ribs until you’re ready to pack the cooler. At the campground, simply warm on the grill. Easy peasy.
This calls for baby back ribs, but works just as well with spareribs or St Louis style ribs. Start by preparing a foil pack for each rack of ribs. Using 4 large pieces of foil, place two vertical and two horizontally with the ribs in the middle. Coat ribs in Homemade Pork Rub Seasoning Blend.
Fold up foil pack, sealing completely.
Put both packs on a single baking sheet and place in preheated oven.
Roast until fork tender, about 2 hours. Set aside to cool, and refrigerate. When ready to serve, bring ribs to room temperature and place on grill over medium heat.
Top with barbeque sauce and cook meat side down until warmed through, flipping once.
I prefer mine unsauced, so I usually do one rack with sauce and one without. It’s totally up to you.
Serve with any of your favorite summer sides like Dill Potato Salad, Cilantro Lime Coleslaw, Corn and Black Bean Salad, and lots of paper towels.
