Slow Roasted Barbecue Ribs for #SundaySupper

 When it comes to barbecue, there is nothing more traditional than ribs. These slow roasted barbecue ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender and delicious.

Slow Roasted Barbecue Ribs

If there’s one thing I cannot resist, it is barbecue ribs. During a serious House of Cards marathon, I craved nothing but ribs for weeks. Dripping with sauce, meat falling off the bone, tender and tasty. There’s really nothing better for a barbecue than some drippy, saucy ribs. Paired with a cold beer, I’m set for life with a giant platter of these slow roasted barbecue ribs.

When the Sunday Supper theme of Summer Barbecues was announced, I didn’t think for more than two seconds on a meal choice. It had to be ribs. We’ve been eating them quite often around here lately. They cook slow and low in the oven for a few hours, which is perfect for a lazy Sunday evening meal. The slow cooking makes for a super, super tender piece of meat that practically falls off the bone. But first, slather the entire thing with a spicy, savory rub. It gives maximum flavor to the meat, which you later coat in barbecue sauce. Serve them with a side of paprika roasted potatoes, fries or some veggies and then dig in!

    • Oh my goodness, these are perfect for you! They taste just as delicious as grilled ribs without having to actually use a grill! :)

  1. First… Have to dry the drool dripping down my chin. Second… Yea… Following a House of Cards marathon I wanted to rent an RV and road trip it to every state that made ribs. I’m serious about my rib situation. Love these! Love the rub! LOVE!!

    • I totally feel you about the road trip! Watching that show always makes me want ribs, so badly! That and watching Louie always makes me want pizza. :)

    • I wish! I NEED to know what happens next! I was expecting season 2 episode 1’s big twist but was still totally stunned. And left with a huge rib craving. :)
