5. Bake covered 1 hour 45 minutes; brush with sauce. Bake uncovered about 45 minutes longer, brushing frequently with sauce. 

Expert Tips:

  • If you’re going to serve leftover sauce with ribs, be sure to heat it to boiling beforehand. Boil and stir 1 minute to kill any bacteria from the uncooked ribs that may have gotten into the sauce.  
  • Place ribs meaty side up in pan, so fat can drip away into bottom of roasting pan or into 13x9-inch pan to drain later.
  • Add sauce toward end of cooking time so it doesn’t burn.
  • Cook ribs as directed until tender. Cook a little longer if you like the meat falling off the bone.
