This was really delicious and so easy! I used boneless beef country ribs and they were so tender and flavorful. The only thing I did different was I added a little dry mustard and onion powder to the rub, and cooked on high instead of low. Then I left a little bit of the juice at the bottom and covered the meat with Sweet Baby Rays bbq sauce. It was sweet and spicy and awesome! We had macaroni and cheese along with it and all everyone could say was YUM! Thank you so much for this awesome recipe, for sure I will be making this again and again.
So easy and so good! I did cut the cayenne by half, since the kids said it was too spicy the first time I made them. Definitely a keeper, and I've shared it with others. Thanks!
Absolutely fantastic. I've tried a few different recipes for ribs but never had results like this. I cut the whole recipe in half so I used about 2 pounds of ribs. The BBQ sauce I used was Hot & Spicy and it was perfect. I used pork ribs instead of beef ribs because I got a great deal on them but I'm interested in the beef ribs. This was such an easy way to do ribs -- and the best I've tried yet. The meat was tender and tasty. Thanks so much for posting!! This is going into my keeper file and I'm printing out extras to give to friends and family. :)
My family loved this. I used about 2 lb. of country style boneless pork ribs, and would next time half the rub. My family loved it... sweet yet a little spicy. I used Famous Dave's rich and sassy BBQ sauce. I'm a little concerned about the nutritional info that printed with the recipe... 1327 calories per serving!!! I hope not. I wonder if that should be looked into. Thanks for a great recipe!
Family loved it!!!made it with pork and it was a ill dry, can't wait to try it with beef. Has anyone tried this rub with chicken?
Wow! Wonderful recipe. I didn't change a thing. Oh, I added some thick pork chops I had sitting in my freezer than seem to take forever to tenderize. People don't skip the cayenne! It makes the recipe, and its not overly spicy at all! Will be definitely making these again!
My family loved this! I don't think I even have to add the barbecue sauce. My husband did suggest adding carrots and potatoes to round out the meal. I'm doing that today! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I really enjoyed the flavor of the rub with this one. I only had one package of boneless beef ribs, so a little less than two pounds, so I just mixed the rub, then sprinkled some on as I went and proceeded with the recipe. I did sub hickory smoked salt for salt, but otherwise kept the proportions the same. My ribs were cut in the "with the grain equals shoe leather" style, so these weren't as tender as I would have liked, but the flavor was great. I used a sauce recipe from this site, a clone of Tony Roma's smoky style, which went very well with the dry rub seasonings. Thanks for sharing. :-) I'll try this one again with better quality ribs.
So delicious! I had to use pork ribs, but they were still the best ribs I had ever eaten. Great job fitmama!
DELICIOUS! i used country-style pork ribs, some with bones .. some, without. i, too, added dry mustard and onion to the rub. i drained mine after 5 hours (on low) and added a full bottle of Stubb's Hickory Bourbon Barbecue sauce, and half of a bottle of the generic store brand 'original' flavor sauce (for 4 1/2 lbs of ribs). I prefer to have to extra sauce for serving and dipping! I continued to cook them on low for another two hours, and then set to warm.
they were, as stated in most other reviews, fall-off-the-bone tender, and very much exactly what i'd hoped for. Leftovers tomorrow will make great sandwiches. Thank you, fitmama, for such a tasty, easy recipe!
