Perfectly baked, these fork-tender, fall-off-the-bone pork riblets, in a thick homemade barbecue sauce, couldn't get any easier! Do you remember when these used to be popular at buffet restaurants? This is a copycat version you can make at home!
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Rinse the pork riblets under cold water to remove any small pieces of bone that may be present. Pat the riblets dry with paper towel and line them up on the prepared baking sheet. Do not overlap the riblets.
Bake the riblets for 45 minutes. Turn the riblets over after the first 25 minutes of baking time.
In the meantime, whisk together the remaining ingredient until well incorporated. Set aside.
Once the riblets have browned, remove them from the oven. Pour the sauce mixture over the riblets and turn the riblets over so that each riblet is well coated in the sauce.
Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and return the riblets to the oven.
Bake for 90 minutes, turning the riblets once every 30 minutes.
Once fully baked, remove from oven and serve immediately.
