Key Ingredients: What You’ll Need

  • Beef Back Ribs: These ribs are the lean meat left behind after the ribeye roast is removed from the bones. Although they may not have as much meat as other cuts, they still offer incredible juiciness and flavor. You can use either a full rack or sliced ribs for this recipe. Sliced ribs are a great option when a full rack is hard to come by.

  • Smoked Paprika: Since we’re baking the ribs in the oven, smoked paprika comes to the rescue, providing that wonderful smoky flavor reminiscent of grilling. If you don’t have smoked paprika, regular paprika will work just fine.

Chef’s Tips to Elevate Your Ribs

  • Patience is Key: Resist the temptation to remove the ribs from the oven before the 3-hour mark. By allowing them to bake wrapped in foil, the meat absorbs all the flavors. Early checking releases valuable steam and reduces the overall flavor of the beef back ribs.

  • Enjoy Fresh, Store Leftovers: These ribs are best enjoyed straight out of the oven. However, if you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. To reheat, transfer the ribs to a baking sheet, cover with aluminum foil, and bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes until warm throughout.

  • Low and Slow Wins the Race: Don’t be tempted to increase the oven temperature. Although four hours might seem long, trust me, it’s worth the wait. Cooking the beef back ribs low and slow breaks down the collagen, resulting in incredibly tender meat.
