"These are some great tasting, finger-lickin' ribs! Boil 'em and then grill 'em (or you may finish them in the oven, if you prefer), then serve 'em with extra Q sauce for dipping. Simple and easy recipe, with NO heating up of the kitchen from a hot oven, which is an added bonus especially in the hot summertime. Recipe is from my Southern born and raised sis-in-law, Patricia Ellen. Thought I'd share with y'all, I hope you enjoy. Serve with some corn bread or buttered rolls, beans and slaw."

"I will never cook my boneless country style pork ribs any other way!!! I only boiled mine for an hour and a half, but I only had 3 ribs in the pot also... I added bbq sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and minced garlic to the water. When I took them out of water, they nearly fell apart! I put them in a glass pan, basted them with bbq sauce, and put them in a 375 oven for about 8 minutes, then put the broiler on just long enough to carmelize the sauce a tiny bit (3-5 minutes or so). These were DELICIOUS!!! Thanks for the recipe :) P.S. My grill didnt have any propane, otherwise I would have cooked them that way.. I could only imagine how delectable these would have tasted that way!"
"Sorry it took me so long to get back with a review. Okay the first time we did this, we did it as directed boiling the ribs. Yes the ribs were tender, but a lot of great flavor was also removed with the boiling method. Next time, I baked them covered at 250 degree Fahrenheit oven for 2 hours and then finished on the grill. The low and slow baking kept a lot more flavor. I thinking the only thing boiling accomplishes is making them tender."
"This is a fabulous recipe, however, a chef's nightmare. NEVER boil the ribs, they can be baked for a few hours a a low temp, but never boil. Any chef worth their salt and ANY Rib shack owner would tell you the same thing. Never boil. Flavor in meats come from the fats, and boiling remove the fats , hence removing flavor, so most of what you are tasting is seasonings and bbq sauce, not the meat itself. Do you boil a good rib eye steak? NEVER"
"The first time i tried these we did not like them. but after reading the other reviews and adding liquid smoke and garlic to the water. these are fantastic. Even my picky eater asked for more,, ty"
"My husband brought home ribs late afternoon and wanted me to cook them by tonight. I didn't think I would have had the time so I got on the web and found this recipe. Even more last minute I invited friends over for dinner with the comment "Not sure how dinner will turn out". Needless to say it turned out GREAT, So great I just got an email from the husband asking for recipe! My only suggestion it to make sure not to boil them too long as they fell apart and I had min ribs instead of big ones and it was harder to BBQ. I will for sure make these again and again. Oh the BBQ in the water was such a nice touch!"
"Will not do this again. Flavorless with boiled meat texture...next time will bake on 275 for 5-6 hours and then put on grill. This was quick but no one ate it..."
"I quit making ribs a few years ago because they were always so tough. This recipe is PERFECT! The ribs were so tender! I'm not hesitant to cook ribs anymore! :)"
"Wow, I just recently started cooking and I was worried about boiling the ribs but they came out perfect. Very tender. Very EASY way to cook ribs."
"OMG These were so good! The best ribs I've ever had! I sprinkled them with Famous Dave's Rib Rub and slathered them with Sweet & Sassy barbecue sauce before throwing them on the grill! Can't wait to make them again!"
"This was awesome. DH was skeptical re: boiling first, but 'twas all for naught! These ribs did not lose one once of flavor in the water. Along with the cup of BBQ sauce we minced 3 cloves of garlic, cut up a medium sized onion, threw in some kosher salt and cracked black pepper. When they hit the grill, they took off running. 10 minutes for ours and they were sliding off the bone and falling apart. Messy, sticky? Oh yeah. "Finger-Lickin' Good." We were lovin' 'em. Thanks for a great recipe."
"Great recipe - our entire family loved these ribs, even the kids! I will definitely make these again! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!"
"I'm not a fan of boiling meat but your right they turned out fantastic. I added salt, pepper and lots of galic instead or BBQ sauce to the water. I sauced them on the grill, so tender they melted in your mouth."
"Super easy, tasted great. I finished mine under the broiler. The kids ate them all up, I barely got a bite."
"This was a fantastic recipe. I did as others said and added some sliced garlic and onion and wor. sauce to the pot. It was sooooo tender. My father loved it and so did my hubby and he is a picky picky pork rib eater. I have made it again one week later. THANKS FOR SHARING."
"I had some boneless pork ribs in the freezer and I saw this recipe. It was super easy to do and came out delicious! The ribs were falling apart. I used a Texas style BBQ sauce and finished them in the oven since my grill isn't working. We absolutely loved them and will be making this recipe again. Thanks for the great recipe."
"These are so easy and so delicious. Will use bone in ribs next time. Used Jack Daniel's bbq sauce, 6 cloves of garlic (smashed), a hit of teriyaki sauce, a bit of honey. Finished them on the grill. FANTASTIC. Will be posting on my blog."
"Can't get much easier than this! We were not able to grill last night so we finished them up in the oven. I did it at 375 though to get some carmelization. They were very tender and very tasty - not bland at all. As far as the boiling part I added a bunch of salt and pepper, and some red pepper flakes for heat. Served along side was red beans and rice. Very tasty, thank you."
"giving 5 stars for easiness :)just found this today going to try it later afternoon and wil post turn out !!!!!"
"These turned out great and everyone liked them. I finished them in the oven this time, but will probably start grilling them soon, since it is too hot to turn on the oven."
