Easy Baked Ribs


  • 1 rack of baby back ribs, cleaned
  • 1 bottle barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup or can 7up

For the dry rub:
  • 1 tablespoon rock salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin

Preheat oven to 350’F.

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the dry rub.

Rub the dry rub all over the rack of ribs.

In a separate bowl, blend together barbeque sauce and 7up. Pour mixture over ribs while saving at least ¼ cup of mixture for basting. Place ribs on a baking dish and cover.

Bake ribs in the oven for about 45 minutes while basting frequently with the remaining barbeque mixture.

Tip~Basting means pouring liquid over roasting or baking meat to prevent it from getting dry. In this case, we use the barbeque sauce to keep the ribs moist and tender.
