These were pork ribs.
Do you boil ribs before you cook them? I know a lot of people swear by the boil-before-you-bake method.
I don't. I am of the belief that boiling just removes flavor. It also dirties another pan and who wants extra clean up? Not me.
I just take them from the package and put them in a roaster & put salt and pepper on them. This time I put quite a bit of Emeril seasoning on also.
I put them in a 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes. The high temp is my way of getting a little browning action without taking an extra step on the stovetop. Then I turned the oven to 350 for one hour. Then I turned it to 225 for another 1.5 hours. I cooked them about 3 - 3.5 hours total. During the last hour I dump on our favorite BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Rays). Since 225 degrees is not enough to brown the sauce, I stick them under the broiler for the last 10 minutes or so.
I also roasted these potatoes as well as carrots (way in the back).
I put carrot sticks on a separate baking sheet and put them in the same oven for the same time. Before cooking I grated a bit of fresh ginger over them and sprinkled with salt/pepper and olive oil.
When they came out of the oven, I grated just a skosh of orange peel over the top.
All in all, I was happy with everything.
Except this little accident...OUCH! (If blood makes you squeamish (like it does me) don't look)
Gotta watch those sharp knives!!
