The only thing I have to say about this is that you NEED to make these ribs immediately! Fall off the bone, savory, sweet, and spicy goodness!

This beautiful summer weather has my mind in one place and one place only. BBQ! I’ve been craving some meaty, get you messy, and delicious ribs. Easy 3 ingredient sauce to make this dinner simple. I had to put my Spicy Red Pepper Jelly to good use so I paired it with my favorite BBQ sauce and it turns instantly into a masterpiece.

While I truly admire the people that have the tenacity and dedication to take the time to wood smoke their meat. I generally lean towards the quick and easy way to make my BBQ. The oven always works just fine for me. So if you have more experience with the grill or smoker, by all means use that method.

The best part about this recipe is that these ribs need to be cooked low and slow so you can just stick them in the oven and forget about them for 2 hours and do some chores around the house…If you’re like me, I have a pile of laundry to do on Mondays that I would rather focus on getting rid of than making dinner. Definitely beats fretting over a grill for 4 hours!

These ribs are absolutely perfect for a crowd. This is definitely going to be my 4th of July meal!

Prep Time 

Cook Time 

Difficulty Easy

Servings 6 – 8


1 rack Pork Spareribs

Salt and Pepper

1 bottle Beer {I used a white IPA, but you could also use white wine.}

1/2 cup Red Pepper Jelly {If you don’t want to make your own, store bought is fine.}

1/2 cup BBQ Sauce {Your favorite.}

3 cloves Garlic, minced or grated

Preparation Instructions

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F.

Prepare the rack by removing the silver looking membrane from the back side of the ribs. Typically the butcher will do this for you.

Set a wire rack in a large sheet pan. Pour the beer on the bottom of the sheet pan, careful not to cover more than the bottom of the sheet pan. Season the rack of spareribs with salt and pepper on both sides and rub in. Set the ribs on the wire rack. Roast uncovered at 250 degrees F for 2 hours.

Meanwhile, combine the BBQ sauce, red pepper jelly and the garlic in a small microwave safe dish. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir.

After the ribs have cooked for 2 hours, remove the ribs from the oven and increase your ovens heat to 325 degrees F. Spoon half of the sauce over the ribs and use a brush to spread over the whole rack. Cover with aluminum foil and seal tightly. Place in the 325 degree F oven, baking for an additional hour, or until the meat begins to pull away from the bone. Remove the ribs and unwrap.

Spread more sauce over the top and set back in the oven. Turn your broiler on and broil for 5 minutes.

When ready to serve, brush with a little extra sauce on each serving.

Don’t forget some good grilling sides like pasta salad, potato salad and some baked beans would go great here! But the real winner side would be some Red Pepper Jelly Street Corn to round out this meal!
