1½ cup water
1 tbsp. garlic powder

1 tbsp. paprika

1. Preheat oven to 325°F and remove the membrane from the bottom side of the ribs.

2. In a small bowl, mix spices together and then rub them on the ribs.

3. Place coated ribs in a baking dish or roasting pan with the onions and garlic scattered over and around them.

4. Then, pour the water over the ribs and cover the dish or pan in foil.

5. Place the covered ribs in the oven and bake for 3 hours.

6. After that time, preheat the grill to 400°F, remove the ribs from the oven, and toss the garlic, onions, and juices.

8. Grill the ribs that way for 5 to 7 minutes, and then flip, slather, and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes.

10. After that time, unwrap ribs, serve, and enjoy!
