What Are the Best Types of Ribs to Make in the Oven?
Pork spare ribs are an ideal type of rib to use when making oven-baked ribs, as they take longer to cook and have additional fat. As you slow cook spare ribs in the oven on low heat, the pork and marbled fat will create a tender bite and delectably sweet, fatty flavor.
You can use either beef ribs or pork ribs, depending on the recipe and flavor profile you desire to create. Pork ribs, however, showcase a delicious sweet, meaty and succulent flavor that contrasts beautifully against savory dry rubs and sugary barbeque rib sauces.
