Spicy St Louis Ribs – made with large pork ribs and a sauce chock full of flavor, you’ll need a knife and fork for these Asian inspired ribs!
One of the things I always miss about summer is the taste of barbecue meat, but no more. Spicy St Louis Ribs slow baked in the oven can be just as delicious and flavorful as off the grill. The secret is in the technique and the sauce.
This is truly the only rib recipe you will ever need for Spicy St Louis Ribs. Ribs simply don’t get any better than this! You’ll need a fork and knife to eat these, as they will fall off the bone and be tastier than you can imagine.
While the ribs are slow cooking, they’re tightly wrapped in foil to prevent drying out the meat. To give the ribs a real flavor hit, they’re bathed in a spicy sauce right before going in the oven.
The sauce slow bakes right into the meat. Toward the end of the cooking time, the ribs are then uncovered and coated with sauce again, this time to form a nice sticky topping.
