These larger-than-life hearty ribs are not only big on size but on taste, too! Since they bake up in our ovens, we can enjoy them all year 'round, no matter the weather!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 to 7 pounds beef back ribs, trimmed and cut into individual ribs
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large roasting pan with aluminum foil then place a roasting rack in pan. Coat rack with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine cumin, oregano, thyme, chili powder, garlic powder, and salt; mix well.
  3. Rub seasoning mixture evenly over ribs. Place ribs on roasting rack, overlapping them if necessary. Roast uncovered 1 hour.
  4. Brush ribs with barbecue sauce and roast, uncovered, 25 to 30 more minutes, or until ribs are tender and cooked through. Serve immediately.


Serve with additional barbecue sauce on the side.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Sounds good, but i prefer my beef ribs much simpler. Salt,pepper, garlic powder, period. No BBQ sauce for me, either. I had to chuckle when I read beef ribs "trimmed". For many years, at least in the general area where I live in South Florida, beef ribs in the supermarket are shaved to the bone and the only meat is between the bones. Who in the world would pay $5-8 for bones?

By far the best ribs ever!

Hi Mr. Food Test Kitchen, can you substitute the Beef Back Ribs for Country styled Ribs. If so, is their any change in the recipe

Hi there! Yes, you can use country-style ribs in this recipe. The Test Kitchen believes that roasting the ribs for 30 minutes (uncovered) rather than 60 minutes before finishing (covered) for the recommended 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Hi, Mr. Food. These look great! Where would you suggest to look for these extra big beef ribs? I don't recall ever seeing any thing like these in our local store's meat department?

Hi there! The Test Kitchen says to ask your local butcher about the beef ribs (they may be able to cut them for you) or you can also use the largest beef ribs that you can find. :) Enjoy!

This is one of those dishes thats just as good served over a bed of salad greens as it is over a bed of couscous, or well, over just about anything.
