  • 1 rack of ribs
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4-5 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 tbsp fresh thyme leaves stems removed
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  1. Bring ribs to room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  3. Pat ribs dry and then drizzle with lemon juice and generously salt (about 1 tsp). Let sit for 20 minutes.
  4. Season ribs with ground black pepper to taste.
  5. Then press minced garlic and thyme into the ribs.
  6. Wrap ribs in foil and place on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 2-2 1/2 hours, until meat is tender.
  8. Remove ribs from foil.
  9. Turn oven to broil. Place ribs back on baking sheet and broil on top rack for 5-15 minutes, until ribs just start to get crispy. Watch closely to ensure you don't burn the ribs.
  10. Once ribs have a nice, crispy crust, remove from heat and slice to serve.
