Servings 4


  • 2-3 lbs back ribs preferably high quality, pastured pork
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 275°
    Mix sugar and salt, then apply the blend to both sides of the ribs. You will likely have some left over.
  • Put the ribs in a backing dish and cover it loosely with foil. Bake two hours, or until the ribs are extremely tender.
  • Allow ribs to cool for a few minutes, then use a sharp knife to cut them apart. Serve with sweet potato fries and a vegetable of your choice.


•The sugar/salt rub can be made in any quantity at a ratio of two parts brown sugar to one part salt. It keep well in a sealed jar or bag, and is great on just about any meat, but especially on pork.
•Though this recipe is written for baby back ribs, it will work just as well with spare ribs or even country style. Country style ribs will be slightly more prone to drying out, so what them carefully if you use them.
