I heard that a quick and dirty way to keep them in mind is the following:

Omote - 3 syllables as in irimi

Ura - 2 syllables as in tenkan
Don't forget, though, that omote does not necessarily imply irimi, irimi does not necessarily imply omote, ura does not necesarily imply tenkan, nor does tenkan necessarily imply ura...
