Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs
We love this recipe for Country Style Pork Ribs because the meat comes out so fall-apart tender and full of flavor. This recipe is easy to make and country style pork ribs are so inexpensive to make, so this is a cheap dinner that feels so fancy.
Country style pork ribs are cut from the shoulder and are generally sold boneless. This cut of pork is really full of so much flavor and when cooked low and slow become super tender and delicious.
How to Cook Country Style Ribs in the Oven
Start by seasoning the boneless pork ribs with salt and black pepper then browning the meat in the bottom of a heavy, oven safe pan. I like to use my cast iron pot for recipes that need to be roasted in the oven.
Brown the meat on all sides over medium high heat in a neutral oil like avocado oil, grape seed oil or canola oil. This will just take about one minute per side, don’t try to cook them at this point, just add a little brown on the outside.
Remove the ribs from the pan to a clean plate and add in the sliced onions and red peppers. Cook and stir for about 30 seconds, just to get them slightly softened. Leave the in the pan at this point while you add in the rest of the ingredients.
Pour the barbecue sauce and canned pineapple with its juices into the pot and stir to combine.
Add the ribs back into the pan with the sauce and veggies.
Cover the pan with a lid and cook in an oven set to 350º F. Cook the country style ribs for 1 hour.
After 1 hour, remove the lid of the pan and continue to cook the country style ribs for an additional 15-20 minutes, until the sauce reduces a little and becomes thicker.
The sauce becomes like a delicious sweet and sour sauce that is so yummy with these pork ribs. We like to eat these ribs over baked potatoes, on their own or even over some fluffy rice.
