Country Style Ribs with Jack Daniel’s Barbecue Sauce

Here is an easy recipe for fast boneless country ribs. Country style ribs aren’t actually ribs at all, but a cut of pork between the ribs and shoulder. They are boneless, low in fat, and tender. They are closer in relation to a pork chop, but are cut in strips. They make perfect, no mess, no fuss “mock ribs” that are easy enough for a fast weeknight meal. You can also make them on the grill, instead of baking them in the oven.

For these ribs, I made an easy Jack Daniel’s barbecue sauce. This sauce is nice and tangy, without being too sweet or too spicy. I added grated garlic and onion to the sauce for extra flavor. To get the most flavor from my onion, I grated it from the root end, where the onion is the juiciest. I also added my favorite prepared sauce, Country Bob’s all purpose sauce. You could also use any steak sauce in place of this ingredient. I really like Country Bob’s though because of the complexity of flavors in the sauce. I was going to ask my husband if he liked this barbecue sauce, but after seeing him polish off the third rib without letting a single drop of barbecue sauce go to waste, I would say he liked it.

Country Style Ribs with Jack Daniel's Barbecue Sauce

Ingredients:

2 - 3 lbs. Country style ribs
2 tablespoons Southern Spice Blend or other Southern/Cajun spice blend

Sauce:
1 14.5 oz can of tomato sauce
3/4 - 1 cup Jack Daniel's whiskey
1/2 cup Country Bob's all purpose sauce or another steak sauce
2 tablespoons grated onion, from the root end of the onion
2 cloves grated garlic

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rub seasoning on pork and place pork on a rack on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees, uncovered for 25 -30 minutes.

While pork is cooking, add ingredients for sauce to a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Let the sauce reduce until it has thickened and the alcohol has cooked off. Sauce will become much sweeter.

Baste pork with barbecue sauce and continue to cook until the ribs have reached an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
