    Something that you must know about me is that I’m a big-time carnivore. If it was up to me, my diet would consist simply of all things meat. Alas, my husband makes sure that I eat my vegetables and protein every day. How dare he!

    On our second date ever, I asked him to take me to a Rodizio restaurant (or churrascarias, whichever term you prefer). My girlfriends were appalled!

    “Are you sure that you want him seeing you consume all that meat?”, they said.

    “If he can’t handle me eating so much meat, then maybe he shouldn’t be with me!,” is how I reasoned with them.

    I still stand by my statement to this day. Me loving to eat is who I am at my core, and he deserved to see the real me. I guess he liked it since we’ve now been together for over 6 years! 😉

    Anyway, I digress. The point of all this is that I love meat. This ribs recipe is one of my favorite ones because the meat is so tender; it falls off the bone and the flavor is just out of this world! You can also customize the recipe depending on how sweet or spicy you like your ribs to be.

     

    Cost Breakdown for Slow Cooked BBQ Ribs

    Something that I’m trying to incorporate into my posts is a breakdown of how much everything costs. The whole point of my blog is to show you that it’s possible to keep a 9-5 job while still saving enough to travel around the world and eat healthy meals. By providing this cost breakdown, I hope to show you that eating tasty meals doesn’t have to break the bank. Any time we eat leftovers, I think of the next trip we could possibly be saving for!

    • 2 racks pork spare ribs = $27
    • Beer (6-pack) = $12
    • BBQ sauce =$2
    • Brown sugar = $3
    • Allspice =$3

    As for all of the ingredients below, I already had these on-hand so I didn’t count these into the overall cost. I’m making the assumption that most households will also have these at home.

    • Pepper
    • Salt
    • Garlic powder
    • Paprika
    • Parsley
    • Onion powder
    • Chili powder
    • Cayenne pepper

    Total = $47

    For 8 servings, that works out to $5.88 a serving! Cha-ching! You’ll obviously pay a bit more for each serving by adding a side of veggies and carbs, but all in all, it’s still absolutely worth the price.

    Directions

    Pre-heat your oven 250 degrees F. While that’s warming up, combine all of your spices together: salt, pepper, garlic, brown sugar, paprika, parsley, onion powder, chili powder, allspice, and cayenne pepper.

    Rub both sides of the ribs with the mixture. After you place the ribs on a baking sheet, pour a bottle of beer on top of the ribs. From my experience, wheat, porter and dark ales go best with this type of recipe. We typically always have some beer on hand…you know…for emergency recipes!

    Cover the baking sheet very tightly with aluminum foil. By this point, the oven should be preheated already. Put the ribs in the oven and bake for the next 8 hours. Go about your life during this time. After 8 hours, remove the ribs and let them cool down to room temperature. Discard the liquids from the baking sheet but try hard not to touch or move the ribs as much as possible during this step. You want them to remain intact.

    For the next step, pour a thin layer of your preferred BBQ sauce on the ribs and brush it on evenly. Again, cover the sheet tightly with foil. Place in your refrigerator overnight so that the meat has time to condense again. I know this step is such a tease; I would absolutely be ok with eating the ribs at this point, but alas, patience, Young Grasshopper! The wait is SO worth it!

    When you’re ready to eat the next day, remove the ribs from the fridge. You can either heat them up in the oven on 400 degrees F for 30-45 minutes, or grill them on medium-low heat for 30 minutes, or until browned.

    Ta-da! Ribs are done! We paired ours with homemade mashed potatoes and steamed spinach. So good!

    I hope you enjoy these ribs as much as I do. And if you don’t, send your ribs over my way and I’ll for sure eat all the leftovers. Let me know how everything turns out!

    See you next time!

    Love,

    Recipe Notes

    The reason for refrigerating the ribs overnight is that the meat will hold together much better. It will not fall apart when you eat it but will still be so tender. This also lets the dry rub seep into the meat for better flavors. Enjoy!
