How to Cook Ribs in a Convection Oven

Ribs are an all time favorite of summer get-togethers. The most common way to cook ribs is via the barbecue. This can be very messy when the ribs are heavily marinated, and the marinade can burn when using a honey-marmalade mixture. When marinating ribs, a person can usually get away with doing it for 2 to 3 hours, but for best results, let the ribs soak in the juices for 24 hours.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 cup soy sauce

  • ½ cup orange marmalade

  • ¼ cup pineapple juice

  • ½ cup honey

  • 5 cloves minced garlic

  • 1 tbsp. minced ginger

  • 4 lbs. ribs, fat trimmed

  • 2 large bowls

  • 2 (1-gallon) plastic food bags

  • Aluminum foil

  • Shallow rimmed pan

  • Cooking rack

Step 1

Combine all ingredients, except the ribs, into a large bowl. Mix well. This is your marinade.

Step 2

Rinse the ribs and pat dry with a paper towel. Place half of the ribs in each of the 1-gallon plastic bags. Pour half of the marinade into each bag. Seal the bags. Place the bags into a large bowl to help catch any possible leakage.

Step 3

Place large bowl into the refrigerator overnight. Turn every 4 hours to let the marinade soak into the ribs evenly.

Step 4

Line the shallow pan with aluminum foil and place the rack on top of the foil.

Step 5

Preheat the convection oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 6

Remove the ribs from the refrigerator and place them in a single layer on the rack. The edges of the ribs should be pointing down. Pour the marinade out of the plastic bags into a large bowl.

Step 7

Bake the ribs for 1 hour and 15 minutes, basting them every 20 minutes.

Step 8

Remove the ribs from the convection oven, cut and serve.
