Marinated Oven Baked Pork Ribs Recipe.

Notes about this oven baked pork ribs recipe

As an alternative to the marinade you can also use a brining solution to inject moisture and flavor into the pork ribs before being cooked off using dry heat. Brining is a liquid saltwater solution that injects moisture and breaks down the meat particles. A marinade is a little thicker and is meat to add flavor to the outside of the meat.
