Monday’s Bread Bowl: Chipotle Baby Back Ribs

Spicy finger-lickin good to the bone

Try these spicy oven-roasted pork ribs. Stewed chipotle peppers, mustard, and sweet onion form the essence of this hot and tangy marinade. Here’s the recipe:

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
1 metal spoon
1 small bowl
1 medium-sized bowl
1 blender
Aluminum foil
1 baking sheet
1 slab baby back ribs, membrane removed
1 yellow onion, quartered
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 (7 ounce) can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
3 tbspns olive oil
2 tablespoons yellow mustard powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon coarse salt

Cooking and Directions:

Combine salt, oregano, and mustard in small bowl. Set aside. Place chipotle pepper, onion, garlic, and olive oil in blender. Cover blender with lid and puree ingredients until smooth. Pour in dry-mixed ingredients and pulse again in blender. Preheat oven at 275 degrees. Coat and lather the slab of baby back ribs (on both sides) with blended sauce. Gently wrap seasoned pork ribs in aluminum foil and place on baking sheet. Place ribs and baking sheet in oven to slowly bake for 3 hours. Unwrap and baste ribs after that time has elapsed. Set oven to broil. Place ribs under broiler to brown and singe to your liking on both sides. Remove browned ribs from oven and let ribs rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.

  1. Hi George - These ribs have my name all over it. In fact if I make these soon, I'll have very content bunch of 4 little piggies in my! Love the chipotle in adobo - can only imagine how good that nice smoky flavor must be.
