Shake 'em Up Mix for Ribs

This is like Shake 'n' Bake.


  • 2 to 3 pounds ribs
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup dried minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco
  • 1 cup tomato juice


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cut ribs into 2-inch pieces and brush them with a teaspoon or two of vegetable oil.
  3. Combine crumbs, flour and spices in a paper bag; add ribs and shake them in the seasonings.
  4. Spread the ribs in a greased baking dish and sprinkle the Tabasco sauce on top.
  5. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes. Baste the ribs once or twice while baking and cover the baking dish with aluminum foil if the ribs are browning too quickly.
  6. Make a sauce from the cooking liquid by adding the tomato juice right after you remove the ribs from the pan.
