Easy Oven Baked Country Style Pork Ribs Recipe | I’m not sure when you can get country ribs inside your neck on the woods but, Lord, I really hope so, because they are so good and versatile and cheap! Country Ribs (sometimes often called “country-style” ribs) are simply just slabs cut in the sirloin or rib end on the pork loin which might be cut into rib-shaped slices (most often boneless). I personally use these in my very favorite pork recipe, Honey Dijon Marinated Pork Kebabs.
Oven Baked Country Style Pork Ribs Recipe
Anywho… when I’m buying no muss, no fuss meal, I prefer to throw these inside the oven, allowed them to cook low and slow then douse all of them barbeque sauce for the end. They may be tender as butter and will just fall apart when your fork even examines them hard. And perhaps they are impossible to mess up.
This really is how I cook traditional ribs though I season them after a little dry rub and after that finish them off around the grill and so the barbeque sauce might get extra happy.
- 2 onions, sliced into rings
- 2 pounds country ribs
- Salt & pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon Liquid Smoke (optional)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup barbeque sauce
- Arrange onion rings evenly in the bottom of a 10×14 baking pan (these keep the ribs off the bottom of the pan and prevent them from boiling rather than slow-roasting). Combine water and Liquid Smoke (if using) and pour into the bottom of the pan.
- Season ribs liberally with salt and pepper on all sides (feel free to jazz up your spices but I tend to like plain ole salt and pepper on these). Arrange ribs evenly over onion slices. Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil or a tight-fitting lid and bake at 250 degrees for 3 hours.
- Remove ribs from oven and increase temperature to 400 degrees. Pour off all liquid and reserve for Greasy Rice if desired. Baste ribs with your favorite barbeque sauce and cook for 10-15 minutes or until sauce is heated through and starting to get a little sticky.
