How to make Barbecue Ribs cooked in the oven

How to make Barbecue Ribs cooked in the oven

We don't cook ribs very often, normally only when we have a BBQ, and that is a shame really, because the boys love ribs - they often order ribs when we eat out, and ribs are always on the list when we order takeaway. thus, when I was sent a bottle of Jack Daniels Honey Barbecue glaze sauce, the first thing I thought was 'I am going to make my boys some ribs'.

The ribs are delicious. Sweet, full of flavour and a nice treat.  I served them with sweet potato chips, sweetcorn, celery and cucumber. I made (my new favourite dip) chive dip, which is very refreshing and tasty and compliments the ribs perfectly.

It is safe to say the boys appreciated my cooking that evening.

First you need to place the ribs in a large pot with enough water to cover. Season with 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, 2 tablespoons of black pepper and 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring water to a boil, turn down to med heat to simmer until the ribs are tender for approx 45 minutes.

Lay the ribs on a baking tray and cover both sides of each ribs with honey barbecue glaze. Cover the ribs in tin foil. Place in a pre-heated (160c) for 1.5 hours. 

After 1 hour in the oven, I pulled the ribs out and sprinkled  with sesame seeds for added texture, stick them back int he oven for the final half an hour to cook.

After 1.5 hours I removed the ribs from the oven, unwrapped the foil and spooned the barbecue sauce that had leaked onto the tin foil and drizzled it over the ribs (although I kept my three ribs dry, as I love dry ribs- they were still full of flavour and super yummy). Then I plated the ribs up.

Prep time: 30 minutes

Cook time: 2 hours 15 minutes.


12 large ribs (or how many you need)

1 Tablespoon Garlic powder

2 Tablespoon Pepper

2 Tablespoon Salt

Honey Barbecue Glaze (I used 2 bottles of Jack Daniels Honey Barbecue glaze sauce)

Sesame seeds


Place all your ribs into a large pan, fill the pan with water, enough to cover the ribs. Add the garlic powder, salt and pepper and on a high heat bring to the boil. Turn down the heat to a medium and leave to simmer for 45 minutes (until tender).

Remove the ribs and place onto a baking tray covered with tin foil and pour the honey barbecue sauce on both sides of each rib. Cover with tin foil and place into a hot oven (160c) for 1 hour. Remove the ribs and sprinkle sesame seeds over the ribs, re-cover with the foil and place back into the oven for 20 - 30 minutes.

Remove the ribs from the oven, scoop up the barbecue sauce that has leaked onto the foil and spread onto the ribs. Serve and enjoy.

I made my own Chive Dip which was freakin awesome - perfect to dip - watch out for the very easy recipe soon.
