    Alskann's Note:

    This recipe is a result of trying different combinations over the years. It will continue to evolve because, for me, a recipe is just a starting point when I cook. Country-style ribs are not really ribs in the true sense, they are meatier and often are boneless. But the end results are just as delicious! These are good served with a tossed green or Caesar salad and Savory Onion Potatoes.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325°F.
    2. 2
      Place spare ribs in a large bowl or gallon size zip-lock bag.
    3. 3
      Add olive oil and zesty Italian dressing packets.
    4. 4
      Mix well. Refrigerate and marinade for at least 1 hour. (You can leave it in the marinade over night if you want).
    5. 5
      Microwave on high for 10-15 minutes, or until ribs are brown, but not cooked through. I microwave them in the bag but you can put them in a microwave safe dish if you prefer. (I use a freezer bag which is thicker and holds up to the heat. I open the seal to vent and place it in a bowl or on a plate - just in case - but have never had a problem).
    6. 6
      While ribs are in microwave, combine the remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until well dissolved and heated through.
    7. 7
      Remove ribs from bag and place in a deep 9 x 13 pan that has been prepared with non-stick cooking spray.
    8. 8
      Pour sauce over ribs, covering evenly.
    9. 9
      Bake for 1 hour, until ribs are cooked through.
    10. 10
      Baste occasionally, if desired.
    11. 11
      NOTE:***These can also be cooked on the grill with delicious results, just baste them frequently and watch them carefully so they do not burn.

      My husband grilled these ribs after I put the recipe together, and we just loved them! Done on the grill, they came out extremely juicy. I let them marinade all day, which seemed to get the flavor deep into the meat.

      Wow!! These are some really, really delicious ribs! My DH made these and chose to grill them (of course;)) and they turned out to be very tender and flavourful. We really enjoyed this recipe, thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 3

      These tasted pretty good but I had to do some guessing to get to that point. I halved the amount of ribs and sauce and was confused about step #2 "Place spare ribs in a large bowl or gallon size zip-lock bag" because then in step #5 it says to microwave the ribs for 10-15 a plastic bag?? So....I placed the ribs in a microwave cooking dish, mixed the salad dressing mix (1 pkg.) with 2 T. oil and smeared it over the ribs, then 'waved them for 10 minutes. I wasn't sure if the ribs were supposed to be covered, or not, in the oven, so I covered them for half the time (30 minutes), then uncovered and basted them, then cooked for another 20 minutes. Good thing I covered them the first 30 min. as they were getting a bit dry after the 20-minute uncovered time period. All in all, the flavor is really nice with these ribs and they turned out quite tender, BUT, the recipe needs some fine-tuning, as far as the methods go. Thanks Alskann....I'm going to play around with this one!
