Mr. Food: Texas Two-Step Ribs

What You’ll Need

  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 4 pounds pork baby back ribs
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine paprika, onion powder, cumin, celery salt, pepper, and brown sugar; rub seasoning mixture over ribs. Place each rack of ribs on a large piece of aluminum foil. Wrap foil securely, leaving room for steam to circulate; seal edges tightly. Place foil packets on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake 2 hours, or until meat is fork-tender. Open packets carefully, as steam may be released. Brush ribs with barbecue sauce and place back in oven 15 to 20 minutes, uncovered, or until sauce starts to caramelize.
