RECIPE: Spiced Pork Ribs
Spiced Pork Ribs
Total time: 3 hours, 10 minutes
2 racks (about 4 pounds) baby back ribs
1/4 cup Tajín Clásíco Seasoning
1/4 cup Tajín Mild Hot Sauce, plus additional for serving, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
lime wedges, for serving
mashed potatoes or steamed rice, for serving (optional)
Rub ribs with seasoning. Marinate at least 4 hours or overnight in refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 300 F. Combine hot sauce, oil and brown sugar; brush over both rib racks.
Line baking sheet with double layer of aluminum foil with enough overhang to wrap foil around ribs.
Lay ribs, bone side down, on foil-lined baking sheet. Wrap foil around ribs and seal. Place on baking sheet.
Fill large baking dish or roasting pan with 2 inches of boiling water. Place on lower oven rack to keep ribs moist as they bake. Place ribs on middle oven rack.
Bake 2 1/2-3 hours, or until meat is tender and just starting to fall off bone.
Preheat broiler. Unwrap ribs and place on foil-lined baking sheet. Broil 4-6 minutes on middle oven rack, or until lightly charred and caramelized.
Serve with lime wedges and additional hot sauce.
Serve with mashed potatoes or steamed white rice, if desired.
