These oven baked baby back ribs are truly one of the easiest recipes for fancy barbecue ever! They are cooked low and slow, which makes them very flavorful and they are so soft that they literally fall of the bone! I almost didn’t want to share this baby back rib recipe but then I was reminded that with “Tsiknopempti ” coming soon in Greece, this would be the perfect recipe for those that don’t want to go out for dinner that day.It is also the perfect game day food with Super Bowl Sunday coming soon.
Tsiknopempti is the second Thursday of the Mardi Gras period in Greece and a day where everyone eats barbecued or grilled meat. These Baby back ribs are to die for and since this recipe isn’t too common in Greece, and in addition this is the perfect opportunity for everyone to try something new.
Super bowl Sunday is an American tradition, where the two top teams in American football compete for the championship. It is more of a day of celebration and a good excuse for friends and family to gather and eat a great meal together. Even if you are not a football fan, the Super Bowl Sunday is a “must attend” since the witty commercials and the half game show are attractions by themselves.
This recipe will work both with baby back ribs and regular ribs. It literally takes 5 minutes of prep time and then you set it in the oven and you forget it for 4 hours. that’s it! You can go about your day and enjoy your friend’s and family presence while these delicious baby back ribs do their own thing.

While this is the perfect Superbowl food, this is also a great meal for any hot summer night or even a 4th of July dinner.
It seems that these oven baked baby back ribs are my little one’s favorite because he asks for them at least twice a month. I do believe that probably this is also one of my brother’s favorite meals as he goes often to that big American restaurant chain in Greece just to have these barbecue ribs.
