Baby Back Ribs with Sweet Chili Sauce

This meal was inspired by Dancing With the Stars and Jaden's Steamy Kitchen.
DWTS, because I was looking for quick and easy meal to prepare before watching this year's premiere (cause I'm a dork), and Steamy Kitchen because that girl knows her ribs.

When I told my daughter what I was making she made that face, so I did half with barbeque sauce and half with the chili sauce. Both turned out great!  The were delicious and moist, and just literally fell off the bone!  And they definitely have the "easy food" seal of approval. 

 I'll never get that pan clean


5 pounds baby back ribs
salt & pepper
1/2 cup Thai sweet chili sauce

1. Preheat oven to 275F. On the underside of the rib, remove the thin membrane and discard. Season both sides with salt and pepper.

2. Place the ribs in a roasting pan, cover with double thickness of tin foil.

3. Roast for 4 hours or so. Discard foil. Use a wide, flat spatula to carefully lift the ribs onto a baking sheet. Spread the sweet chili sauce generously over the ribs.

4. Place oven rack near the top of the oven. Turn broiler on and broil the ribs for 3-5 minutes, or until the sweet chili sauce begins to caramelize. Make sure you don't burn the sauce, so keep a close eye on the ribs.

I've only tried making ribs at home once. My father-in-law brought them over last summer. My husband and my daughter would love it if I made them again. The Thai sweet chili sauce sounds awesome! :)

Yum yum Julie! My husband and I would definitely go for the chili sauce but bbq for my son and daughter (sigh....). These look fall off the bone tender and extremely delicious!

Love the idea of putting sweet chili sauce on the ribs. They look like they turned out all tender and fall off the bone - yum!

I watched DWTS too last night. Love me some Karate Kid! LOL!

Yum! We went to dinner last night and not until after I ordred and ate my entire meal i forgot that they have killer ribs and that I should have ordered those. But now I want these!
