These tender oven baked baby back ribs are super easy to make, drenched in a tangy honey-sriracha glaze you can whip together in no time.

This recipe is sponsored by Yellowbird Foods. All opinions are my own.

Let’s talk about reasons for cooking up baby back ribs. Let’s see, how about game day? When the big game rolls around, juicy, tender ribs are always a hit.

How about parties? Heck yeah. Maybe you want to be the hero or the star of the party because you’re the one who brought ribs instead of a boring cheese ball.

How about this – who needs a reason! The reason is baby back ribs are SO CRAZY DELICIOUS! I enjoy making ribs all year long for dinner, whether they’re in the smoker, on the grill, in the pressure cooker, or in the oven. Oven baking your ribs is so incredibly easy, with most of your time spent waiting for them to be done.

Baby back ribs are AWESOME with any sort of a barbecue sauce, but today I’m here to show you how to whip together a simple yet hugely flavorful Honey-Sriracha Glaze that you’re going to love. Lucky for me, I have Yellowbird Blue Agave Sriracha to work with.

It’s so good!

Yellowbird Sauce has 5 different sauce condiments you can choose from, including Jalapeno, Serrano, Habanero, Ghost Pepper, and this Blue Agave Sriracha we’re cooking with today.

The Blue Agave Sriracha has an excellent sweetness and just the right amount of spiciness to make our glaze for these oven baked baby back ribs.

Let’s talk about how we make them, shall we?

How to Make Oven Baked Ribs – the Recipe Method

Prepping the ribs for baking them in the oven.

First, let’s prep the ribs. Set out the rack of baby back ribs and dry them off with a paper towel.

Remove the membrane underneath by pulling it loose with a kitchen knife. Grip it with your fingers and pull it away from the ribs. Use a paper towel to grip it if it is too slippery.

Next, season the ribs with a good amount of your favorite seasonings. Any rib seasonings are great here. I used my own homemade Cajun Seasoning blend along with a bit of brown sugar.

Rub the seasonings into the ribs on both sides. Be sure to really get them in there.

Cover the ribs with aluminum foil and bake them, covered, at 300 degrees F for 2-3 hours, depending on your preferred level of doneness. They should be done in about 2 hours, but if you’re looking for more “fall off the bone” with your ribs, cook them for 3 hours.

NOTE: Ribs are technically “done” when they reach 145 degrees F internally, but they’re best when they reach about 200 degrees F internally, as the fats and collagens melt down at that point, making the ribs more tender and juicy.

In the last 20 minutes of cooking, lift the aluminum foil and baste the ribs with your honey-sriracha glaze, then cover and finish the cooking.

When they’re done, remove the foil, turn on the broiler and broil the ribs another 5 minutes to brown them up.

Rub them down with a bit more of your honey-sriracha glaze and serve them up!

They’re so awesome!

Let’s talk about how to make the glaze, shall we? It’s SUPER EASY.

How to Make the Honey-Sriracha Glaze

Whisk together the following ingredients in a small bowl – ¼ cup Yellowbird Blue Agave sriracha, ¼ cup honey, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar and 1 tablespoon lime juice.

I like to give it a taste and adjust with a bit more sriracha.

You’re ready to glaze some awesome baby back ribs you’ve just baked up in your oven.

That’s it, my friends. As mentioned, ribs are hugely popular for the game day table and pretty much any party situation where you want to impress your friends, but if you’re like me, you probably just want them for dinner, all for yourself!

Especially with this crazy awesome Honey-Sriracha Glaze. Serve them up! Let me know what time I need to be there!

  1. I usually do ribs on the barbie but no more. Fell of the bone and I had some of my ghost/kiwi left so added that, just for the tang. Thanks
