Boil-and-Bake BBQ Country Style Pork Ribs
I used to think “country style” ribs were a way that I was supposed to cook them. You know, like chicken fried steak or something. Honestly, I didn’t even find out that it was just the name for a specific cut of meat until last week! Now I feel silly
Today’s recipe is in honor of our Super Bowl And Chili Party with a Slow Cookin’ Giveaway (if you’d like to see my chili recipe, here it is). Gearing up for the big game, what better grub is there than BBQ? Of course, these are simple to make all year round, as I didn’t actually use our grill. I call this method “boil and bake”.
They turned out so delicious, all our plates were clean. Best part? Super simple to make! Boiling the pork ribs first cuts back on the baking time and they are still fall-off-the-bone tender. An added bonus, I actually save the liquid leftover from boiling the ribs to use as a sort of stock. Will be trying it with pork fried rice coming up soon
My favorite part about this recipe is the way the sauce turns out. I don’t know about you, but when I bake BBQ anything, that sauce better be sticky! It wouldn’t be any fun if you didn’t get to lick your fingers after! This recipe does just that. It’s for sure going into our meal plans (which reminds me, I’m behind on planning February’s!) and hopefully it will now be in yours!
**I used a commercial sauce in this recipe. If you’d like to try it with my homemade Gentleman’s BBQ Sauce, find that recipe here!**
- 3-4 Country Style Pork Ribs
- About 8 cups water (enough to cover ribs in large pot, plus extra)
- 2 Tbsp. salt
- 2 tsp. pepper
- 1 onion, sliced
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ bottle Honey BBQ sauce
- In large pot, boil water, salt, pepper, onion, and garlic. Add ribs and let boil for about 1 hour. Meat will be tender.
- Remove pot from heat. Pour about 1 cup of the liquid from the pot into a large casserole dish. Add some of the sliced onions that had been boiling in pot.
- Brush each rib with BBQ sauce and place in casserole dish. Cover with foil.
- Bake at 325 degrees Farenheit for 20 minutes, remove foil, baste with more sauce, and replace foil. Bake another 20 minutes.
- After second basting, discard foil and bake uncovered 20 minutes (total will be 1 hour baking time).
- Remove from oven, baste, and serve.
