Chili’s Baby Back Ribs (Serves 6-8)

For those that likes Baby Back Ribs, this is an easy and tasty recipe.

This is the dish that Chili’s is famous for. Full rack of ribs "double-basted" w/BBQ sauce. Typically served w/cinnamon apples & homestyle fries.

6 pounds baby back pork ribs
2 cups water

  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon liquid hickory flavoring
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut the rib slabs in half, leaving 6 to 8 ribs per section. In a large roasting pan, arrange the ribs evenly, then add the water. Cover pan tightly with a lid or foil to prevent steam from escaping. Bake for 3 hours.
  3. About 2 hours into the baking time, make the sauce. In a large saucepan, combine all the sauce ingredients. Simmer over low heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  4. Prepare the coals in a barbecue. Remove the ribs from the roasting pan. Discard the water.
  5. Cover the ribs with sauce, saving about 1-1/2 cups of the sauce for later use at the table. Grill the ribs on the barbecue for about 5 minutes per side, or until slightly charred.
  6. Serve with the remaining sauce and lots of moist towelettes or paper towels.
** If you like your ribs falling off the bone, add 1 cup of apple cider vinegar to water before placing ribs to boil.
