Spiced Pork Ribs

Total time: 3 hours, 10 minutes

Servings: 6


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.
