Understanding Boneless Pork Ribs

Boneless pork ribs also referred to as country-style pork ribs originate from the blade section near the pig’s shoulder.

Unlike their bone-in counterparts, these boneless pork ribs are cut sans bones and often feature appealing marbling.

Rich in flavour, they tend to contain less fat compared to other cuts, ensuring a balance of tenderness and taste. Whether opting for bone-in or boneless, both styles hail from the same section of pork.

  • Location: Cut from the shoulder blade
  • Type: Available bone-in or boneless
  • Texture: Lean, with desirable marbling
  • Also known as: Country-style pork ribs

Notes on Ingredients

For a mouth-watering dry rub:

  • Smoked Paprika: Imparts a smoky essence. Substitute with regular paprika if unavailable.
  • Salt: Any type, though kosher or sea salt, provides a better texture.
  • Ground Black Pepper: Enhances the rub’s complexity.
  • Onion Powder: Adds a subtle, savoury depth.
  • Garlic Powder: Contributes to the overall aroma.

Choosing BBQ sauce:

  • BBQ Sauce: Select a preference, whether sweet or tangy.

Remember to pick boneless Country Style Pork Ribs approximately 3 inches in width or buy the whole joint and cut into pieces.

Cooking Boneless Pork Ribs in Your Oven

  • Season: Begin by generously coating your pork ribs with your chosen mix of spices.
  • Prepare for Baking: Place the seasoned ribs in a 23x33cm (9×13 inch) ovenproof dish. Seal the dish tightly with aluminium foil.
  • Oven Time: Preheat your oven to 160°C/140fan (325°F) and cook for 2 to 2.5 hours.
  • Grill: After baking, move the ribs onto a rimmed baking sheet. Spread barbecue sauce over the ribs. Grill on high for 3 to 5 minutes until the sauce is caramelised.
  • Rest: Once grilled, set the ribs aside to rest for about 5 minutes before serving with accompaniments of your choice.

Oven Cooking Duration for Boneless Pork Ribs

  • Preheat oven to 160°C.
  • Cook time: 2 – 2.5 hours.
  • Check internal temp: Aim for 63°C.
  • Use a meat thermometer to confirm.
  • Optional: Finish with a brief grill/broil for a crisp exterior.

Keeping Your Pork Ribs Succulent

For pork ribs that are sumptuously tender and brimming with flavour, adopt a gentle cooking approach. Here’s how to maintain that succulence:

  • Temperature: Maintain low heat throughout the cooking. This patience allows the meat fibres to become wonderfully tender without losing their juiciness.
  • Time: Dedicate ample time for your ribs to cook. This slow process helps transform even sinewy cuts into something that practically falls apart in your mouth.
  • Moisture: To trap steam and keep everything moist, wrap your ribs snugly in aluminium foil. This ensures they stay succulent.
  • Marbling: Choose ribs with good marbling; it melts into the meat during slow cooking, enhancing the tenderness and adding a sticky, caramelised outer layer.

Tips for Preserving Leftovers

  • Wrap your leftover ribs securely in aluminium foil to maintain freshness.
  • Place them in a sealed container and keep them in the fridge; they’ll be good for up to three days.
  • When you’re ready to enjoy them again, warm them up in the oven at 180°C or give them a quick zap in the microwave.

Accompaniments to Consider

For a delightful gathering, consider these sides:

  • Potato Salad: Classic and creamy, ideal for children and adults alike.
  • Mashed Potatoes: Smooth and comforting, a perfect match for any main course.
  • Sweetcorn Cob: A sweet, buttery addition that complements the main dish’s smokiness.
  • Mac and Cheese: A favourite among kids, adding a rich and indulgent element to your meal.
  • Cornbread: A sweet and savoury bread that’s an excellent alternative to rolls.
