It’s not too late to make dad a special meal this Father’s Day. These tender barbecue ribs are super easy to make and require very little preparation. The grill does all the work when it comes to barbecue ribs. Instead of using store bought barbecue sauce, make your own. It’s only 4 ingredients, and it tastes so much better than the store bought stuff. When making my own barbecue sauce I always make a little extra and store it an airtight container in the fridge for later use. That way you have ready to use homemade barbecue sauce at all times. If you don’t have a grill, you can always make these ribs in the oven. See notes for directions on how to cook the ribs in the oven. Hope everyone has a blessed Fathers Day 🙂

3. Remove the foil and carefully pour the liquid out. Brush the ribs with a generous amount of sauce and bake for the remaining 20 minutes. After the ribs are baked, brush with more sauce. Cooking speed may vary depending on your oven.
