Overall was good BUT I used Kosher salt and reduced the amount and it was still too much salt.
I love how everyone on here complained about the salt. I would bet money that they used regular table salt instead of kosher. Instead of getting mad at the people putting out the recipe, take the time to read and understand what is being asked of you. SMH. Yall, get a 5 star! Came out fantastic. The 1/3 cup of KOSHER SALT worked perfectly.
1. WAY TO MUCH SALT! ( Ruined the ribs) and was discarded- no dinner that night! Couldn’t ‘even fix them!
2 . Dry ingredients should have been listed as “dry ingredients first” not all mixed together as I had to re-read to clarify.
3. Recipe could have been formatted easier for a beginner.
Awful waste of $
Be mindful of reading the recipe. The recipe calls for KOSHER salt which is not the same as table salt, which I assume is the issue for many reviewers. We enjoyed it!
I, too, should have checked the reviews. The recipe completely ruined the slab of ribs with the salt!! I also questioned it, but hey, it's Southern Living, so I went ahead with the 1/3 c. per recipe. It is absolutely inedible, although tender! It's even too salty to feed the dogs. This HAS to be a typo! So embarrassed with company over for dinner.
Excellent except I would cut the salt down 1/2 of what it calls for.
Great, but I cut the salt in half using low sodium morton salt and still way too salty. The next time I will just use 1 TBL.
The first time I made it, used about half the salt and it was amazing. Second time I used the recipe and agree far too salty to the point it’s over-powering. An amazing recipe, just use half the salt.
I wish I would have read the other reviews before I made them. I just looked at them now when I wrote this.
WAY TOO SALTY! I thought it sounded like too much salt when I was making the rub but did not listen to my common sense. I think maybe it you cut the salt by half and follow the rest of the directions it may be okay.
I had to wash the rub off the ribs because of how salty they were. Otherwise, the recipe is straight forward and easy to follow. If I use this rub again I will reduce the salt from 1/3 C to a tablespoon or two.
WAY too salty! Wasted good meat with this recipe. Would have been good if I had only used a quarter of the salt it called for.
Not sure if it was supposed to be a salty mess but that is how it turned out.
They well falling off the bone but tasted like i was eating one on my horses salt lick. Test the recipe before wasting good meat.
Awesome recipe! Made it tonight and everyone raved about it. Thanks!
So easy peasy !!! Didn't have smoked paprika just regular so I added a little jamaican jerk spice.. with the paprika and Bam.. A home run.. Thanks for bringing me to the top of making oven Ribs !!
I'M 75 AND NEVER TASTED BABY BACK RIBS SO TENDER AND SWEET. RETIRED NAVY SO I'VE BEEN AROUND THE WORLD, NOTHING CAN BE BETTER THEN THIS RECIPE AS IT IS EASY AND ABSOLUTELY WORTH YOUR TIME TO TRY THIS....... BIG AL..
Fantastic. I struggled in the past cooking ribs and my northern roots showed. Not anymore! This recipe was easy and took little time to prepare. Most of the time the ribs are marinating or slow cooking leaving the opportunity for relaxing and drinking beer or bourbon. I now consider myself a rib master.
