Easy Oven BBQ Beef Ribs

I like to plan 3-5 ribs per person depending on what else is being served.

  • 6-7 pounds of beef ribs this is about 15 ribs
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 2-3 cups of favorite BBQ sauce we use Dad’s Thunder and Lightning Sauce


  • If not already done, cut ribs apart between the bones so they are all separated. Put ribs in a large soup pot and cover with water. Add butter (to help reduce foaming) and bring to a boil on high. Turn down to a simmer and boil until fork tender, about 2 – 2.5 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350. Coat the ribs in sauce on all sides by dredging or with a brush. Lay them out on a broiler pan, stacking into a few layers if needed.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Serve hot with mashed potatoes, coleslaw, corn on the cob and brownies!
