The key to any successful quick and easy oven rib recipe
The most important thing for making this quick and easy recipe is to make sure your ribs are defrosted. Not only does cooking from frozen take longer but it will dry out your ribs too!
One pot meals mean one pot to clean! All you need is a roasting pan or pyrex cooking pan.
This nonstick roasting pan is great, or I also use this kind of pyrex baking dish.
How to make the perfect oven ribs
When buying pork ribs there are many types to choose from. I honestly usually buy the best deal I can find and they turn out great, but Bon Appetit has a great post on how to select the perfect pork ribs. They cover everything you need to know in their post so we will skip right to the making of your quick and easy oven rib recipe.
Step 1: Preheat oven to 390°F
Place your defrosted ribs into an oven-safe cooking pan. I usually use a pyrex pan or even a small roaster whichever they fit the best in. I like to cut my ribs into 2-3 pieces to help them fit a bit better in my pan and it also decreases cooking time! If you cut them into smaller portions make sure to adjust your cooking time accordingly.
I love my Pyrex cooking pans. The lids make putting away leftovers a breeze. They are great for freezer meals too! If you have trouble getting them clean simply use a magic eraser to make scrubbing a snap and then wash with soap and water!
Step 2: Season and bake the ribs
I mixed mine in a bowl just for this photo so that you can get an idea of how much seasoning and lemon juice to use. Normally I just season right in the pan. No extra dishes needed!
Sprinkle your pork ribs with lemon juice – just enough to get them wet because if you use too much that is all you will taste. Depending on the size and how many ribs you make this will vary, so adjust accordingly.
The next step is to season with lemon pepper, Greek seasoning, garlic pepper and salt. Play around the the amounts to get as much or as little flavor as you like!
Do not add any water to your pan and do not cover the ribs!
Now place the ribs into your preheated oven because that is just how quick these are oven-ready! Remember to always preheat your oven before putting pyrex inside. Bake for 45 minutes.
Increase oven temperature to 420°F and continue to bake the ribs in the oven until nicely golden on top.
Remove from the oven and serve alongside Easy Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes and your other favorite sides.
Our Greek Salad makes a perfect side to any and all ribs! So easy to do and a great healthy salad everyone will love! Perfect for a quick dish to go with our oven rib recipe so head over and see how easy it is to make!
