BBQ Country Ribs are baked in the oven until tender and slathered with a sweet and tangy bbq sauce. These boneless pork country style ribs literally fall apart after a few hours in the oven. BBQ Country Ribs may become your new favorite way to eat ribs.
Country Style Ribs are super economical and really meaty. Cook them long and slow and they get fabulously tender. The oven does most of the work.
How To Make This Recipe:
First you’ll cook them with some liquid smoke and water for one hour in a covered pan. The liquid smoke makes them taste like they were cooked on a grill, not in the oven.
Then you’ll pour off the liquid, baste them with a delicious homemade BBQ sauce, and cook them another hour, basting them a few more times.
These amazing ribs are sure to become a family favorite.
Leftovers will keep for 4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
