Oven Baby Back Ribs

I really should post something about my latest duct tape crafts, but I'm currently in the middle of writing my next book. My worktable is literally and metaphorically cold. I've been spending most of the daylight hours in front of a computer, immobile except for the pecking of fingers on a keyboard.

To make up for my lack of crafting, I've turned to cooking. Crafty cooking. Between the Polar Vortex and my looming editorial deadline, I lack the time and desire to make elaborate meals for my family. And so I've been braising and slow cooking almost every night. I've become a lazy cook.

Today's dish is oven baby back ribs made with a dry rub--or maybe dry 'sprinkle' is more accurate.

1 rack pork baby back ribs
Hungarian hot paprika
garlic powder
black pepper
brown sugar

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place rack of ribs on an oversized sheet of aluminum foil. Sprinkle each spice and sugar on the ribs, evenly covering the surface. Wrap the ribs in foil and place on top of baking sheet. Place sheet in the oven and bake for 2 hours. Lower heat to 250 degrees and bake for another 2 hours.

Take it out of the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes before serving. Use scissors instead of a knife to cut individual ribs.
