Here is a simple recipe for country style pork ribs. Country ribs are part of the loin on the pig. It’s usually very tender, especially if you cook it right. Another plus is, it’s usually cheaper than regular ribs. They also have more meat than regular “rack ribs”. You can purchase this cut of meat at almost any supermarket. Although this recipe is simple, it is far from quick. I slow cooked these in my oven on 325 for a couple of hours. Root beer is a key ingredient. While cooking the root beer with our meat, it cooks down and forms a brown sugar type of glaze and flavors the ribs throughout. By the time you are finished with your meat, it will be extremely tender . This recipe is especially for individuals that live in apartments that do not allow them to BBQ outside on a grill, or for those that simply aren’t grill experienced. You can have delicious barbecue without using a grill, int the comfort of your own home. Sure it may take a while to prepare, but you will be well satisfied with the outcome. I personally would serve potato salad, and green beans with this recipe .You may choose to use BBQ , or not. Again, the root beer is extremely flavorful. What kind of root beer? Honestly, I use whatever is one sale. With these, I used a supermarket generic brand of root beer. If you insist of using your favorite brand, please do so. Remember to preheat your oven while you’re preparing everything else!
