Recipe Tips & Tricks
Whether you make these boneless country-style ribs in the oven or slow cooker, here are some tips to help you get perfect results every time.
- Don’t be worried that there’s not much liquid in this recipe – the ribs will cook down and create their own sauce, and when you add the barbecue sauce, they’ll be saucy and perfect.
- If you cook them in the oven, make sure the foil is on tightly or use a tightly fitting lid to keep the ribs from drying out.
- Salt and pepper are important – make sure you season the ribs well.
- Add even more flavor by adding some sliced onion and a few smashed cloves of garlic to the ribs.
Keep any leftover country-style ribs in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat them in a covered baking dish in the oven at 325-F or in the microwave. You can also freeze these ribs – simply pack them in a freezer-safe plastic bag or container for up to 3 months. Then, just thaw, heat, and eat!
