Boneless BBQ Pork Ribs
Nothing says winter like ribs -- well, I guess summer also counts because you can grill them. However, I don't have a grill, so I'm forced to cook them indoors :)
I associate them with comfort food, and that's what we had last night! It had been quite some time since I cooked (sad). These were super easy and pretty tasty! These would also be yummy in the slow cooker, but I got started too late to do that, so I went the oven route.
I served these with some sauteed broccoli, but you could do all kinds of sides (mashed potatoes would be delightful).
For the sauce, you can use whatever your heart desires. I did half and half (half with Scott's Carolina BBQ sauce and half with Sticky Fingers Carolina Mustard BBQ sauce). I also used a special hickory rub that my wonderful Mom made me! Ingredients: 3 pounds boneless pork ribs (you can adjust recipe depending on amt. of ribs) approx. 4 tb dry rub (I prefer something smoky/hickory flavored) approx. 1/2 cup your favorite bbq sauce (I used 2 different types and split them up) 1 tb vegetable oil Directions: Season the ribs by rubbing them with a bit of oil and then rubbing them with the dry rub. Refrigerate up to 12 hours (I only had time for 2 hours). Remove and let them come to room temperature (about 30 minutes). Preheat oven to 250. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the ribs on the foil and cover with additional foil. Bake for about 90 minutes. Remove the foil and baste the ribs with the sauce, and turn them over. Bake for another 30 minutes and repeat. Bake another 30 minutes if necessary (depends on the size of the ribs). Remove the foil and place under broiler for the last 10 minutes. Let sit for about 10 minutes. Serve additional sauce on the side if desired.
