Oven Baked Spareribs

Oven Baked Spareribs with barbecue sauce in a dutch oven

Fall is in the air! I plan on decorating for Fall this week. I love all the pumpkins, fall colors, and I especially love decorating with all my beautiful treasures I have collected over the years. 

It rained here finally, it's been so dry. Honestly, I am getting tired of watering my lovely flowers outside, I feel bad but they are all dying off. We plan to close the pool very soon too. Sad to see Summer leave, but I am looking forward to cooler temps, the smell of apples and cinnamon, and pumpkin spice! 

Oven Baked Spareribs, for me they are comfort food, and this time of year, we need some comforting.  My Oven Baked Spareribs are fall off the bone delicious. I have been making these for years.  My family adores them, and they are so very easy! 

 I buy a rack of ribs, and cut them up so they fit in my dutch oven, cover the spareribs with water, and into the oven for 2 hours on 350, low and slow.  After 2 hours, I drain all the water and fat, pour our favorite bottle of barbecue sauce over all of the ribs, and cook for another hour, 1/2 hour with the cover on, 1/2 hour with cover off.  They come out perfect every time. 

Oven Baked Spareribs

  • 1 rack of baby back spareribs
  • 1 bottle of barbecue sauce
  • water

Cut up the spareribs so it's easy for them to fit in the your dutch oven. Pour water over the ribs just to cover. Cook on 350 for 2 hours. After the 2 hours, drain all the water and fat. Pour the entire bottle of barbecue sauce over the ribs, making sure they are all covered. Put them back in the oven for another hour, 1/2 hour covered, 1/2 uncovered, to caramelize! Enjoy!


  1. These sound super easy, but delicious! I love ribs, so pinned this one for later!

  2. This brings back 'delicious'childhood memories, my mom always made oven baked spareribs and even today they are my favorite. I love how easy they are to make, perfect for fall.

  3. Those look amazing. Do you have a particular brand of sauce that you prefer?
