Easy Country Ribs

Tonight was about using what was available to make a healthy and delicious meal. We had purchased some country style pork ribs at the store this week because they are an excellent value and loaded with meat. Because of the fat content in the cut, it is best to slow cook the meat. Yet, with my busy life, tonight was not a time for slow cooking. With a new spice blend and high temperature cooking, the ribs turned out great! 
Three words: Quick! Easy! Delicious!

Ingredients:                                    Preheat Oven Temperature: 425 degrees
3 Pounds Country Pork Ribs
2 teaspoons Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Minced Onion
1/8 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
3-4 Tablespoons BBQ Sauce

Arrange the ribs in a baking dish. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients for the spice rub. Thoroughly rub both sides of the pieces with the blend. Cover tightly with foil. It is very important that no air escape the dish and the temperature inside remains high. Place in the oven and bake, covered, for 50 minutes.
Remove ribs from oven. Spoon your favorite BBQ sauce over the top of the ribs. Place back in the oven, uncovered for 20 minutes.
When the top of the ribs have reached the desired caramelization, remove and serve!
