Jim's Country Ribs

"This is how my family has come to like "meaty" ribs. The meat just falls off the bones and is finger licking good. It's also easy to prepare."

  • Fill a 12 quart pot 2/3 full with water. Add all ingredients except bar-b-que sauce.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat. As soon as water begins to boil, lower heat to simmer and simmer for 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Drain off liquid. Place ribs in a baking pan. Pour bar-b-que sauce over ribs. Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30-45 minutes.
  • Option: Instead of baking in oven, put ribs on the grill and baste with sauce.

    Great ribs! I loved the flavor that came from simmering the ribs in all of the seasoning - such a good idea. Thanks for sharing Jim. Made for What's on the Menu tag.

    This method worked great! I had boneless country pork ribs and was a little worried they'd be flavorless after boiling without the bone, but they were great! Super tender and infused with the cajun spices (I used the awesome Penzey's blend). I baked them with the sauce to finish, but will definitely grill them next time to get that crunchy finish. Thanks for a great keeper!

    Made this for dinner last night & it was delicious! I only had 2 lbs of country ribs, so I cut the receipe in 1/2, but used the same cooking times. I also left out the cajun & hot sauce because I don't do spicey. Finished up in the oven. Meat was very tender & had good flavor.

    Much too salty and spicy, altho probably my own fault. I used Luzianne Cajun Spice which is mostly salt, then added the required 1/4 cup of extra salt and 1/3 cup of pepper. I did not use additional hot sauce. The meat came out from the boil tender, but I had to rinse it in fresh water to remove as much of he marinade as possible before grilling with a mild BBQ sauce. I will use this recipe again, but will make allowances for our milder spice preferences.
