Baby Back Ribs

Hi ya'll & welcome to my very first experience making baby back ribs & boy did they turn out even better than I expected!!!  I had reservations about baking them in the oven but those concerns have now been put to rest.  I thought it would take hours & hours to make really good ribs, boy was I wrong.  This was so easy, it will blow your mind & we can't wait to devour these, juicy, tender ribs again for the 4th of July!!!  I wanted to share with everyone just how super easy this recipe is, so that you can share it with your families this weekend.  ENJOY!!  

1 1b slab baby back ribs 
1/4 cup Italian dressing (used Penzey's dry Italian dressing mix & made a homemade version)
coated liberally with paprika, garlic powder, salt & white pepper
Finish off with your favorite bbq sauce

Coat your ribs in the dressing & dry seasoning then allow them to marinate for about an hour or overnight, is even better.  Bake 350F for about an hour or until internal temperature reaches 160F.  Remove and brush with bbq sauce.  Let rest for about 5-10 mins.  Then serve.  

Makes about 2 servings
(we made a small batch to start off with but we will be doubling, maybe tripling this for our 4th of July celebration.  Keep in mind, you may need increase your baking time, the more you have)

Big southern hugs,
