    Why You’ll LOVE These Baked Beef Ribs

    • Versatile Pairing: Whether you serve it with a side of coleslaw, baked beans, or good old-fashioned cornbread, these ribs are the centerpiece that elevates the entire meal.

    What are Country Style Beef Ribs?

    I’m glad you asked! I didn’t know myself before spotting them on a recent trip to Aldi.

    Beef country-style ribs aren’t actually ribs at all! They are typically cut from the chuck or shoulder area of the cow, offering a rich, meaty texture.

    Unlike pork country-style ribs, which are more uniform in size, beef country-style ribs can be a bit more varied in shape.

    However, what they lack in uniformity, they more than make up for in flavor and tenderness when cooked correctly.

    Slow-cooking is an ideal method to tenderize these meaty cuts, while allowing the flavors to meld beautifully. With a decent amount of marbling, these ribs are exceptionally forgiving.

    • Beef Country Style Ribs – If this is your first time eating them, you’re in for a treat!
    • Olive oil – For brushing prior to adding the seasonings.
    • Spice mix – Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika.
    • BBQ sauce – Pick your favorite. We like Sweet Baby Ray’s.

    How to Cook Boneless Beef Ribs in the Oven

    1. Prep the ribs: Place a large piece of foil on a baking sheet. Pat dry the ribs, then place them on the sheet. Brush with olive oil, then season with spice mixture. Wrap the foil around the ribs to form a packet.

    2. Bake: Place the beef ribs in an oven preheated to 300°F. Bake for two and a half hours.

    3. Bring on the BBQ: Remove the country style ribs from the oven, and unwrap the foil. Be careful not to get burned from steam escaping the pouch. Brush barbecue sauce all over the ribs. Bake uncovered for 15 more minutes.

    Expert Tips

    • Quality Matters: Choose ribs with good marbling. The fat will render during cooking, keeping the meat juicy and flavorful.
    • Foil Is Your Friend: Wrapping the ribs in foil for the initial cooking phase helps to retain moisture, making your ribs even more succulent.
    • Sauce Timing: Apply the BBQ sauce only after the ribs are already tender. Applying it too early could cause it to burn due to the sugar content.
    • Rest and Relax: Don’t underestimate the power of letting your ribs rest before cutting into them. This lets the juices redistribute, ensuring every bite is mouthwateringly moist.

    What to Serve with Country Style Beef Ribs

    Well, pretty much anything that goes with any other barbecue! Here are some ideas:

    Vegetable Sides: Squash Casserole, Maque Choux, Cowboy Caviar, Roasted Broccoli, Caesar Salad, and, of course, Coleslaw.

    Starchy Sides: Mashed Potatoes, Hawaiian Macaroni Salad, Bacon Cheddar Cornbread, Cheese Grits, Dirty Rice or Steak Fries.

    Leftovers and Storage

    Boneless Country Style Beef Ribs last well refrigerated in an airtight container for 4-5 days. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months in a freezer safe zip top bag.

    They can be reheated in the microwave, or in the oven at a lower temperature. However, our preferred method is on stovetop with a little extra barbecue sauce mixed with a splash of water in the bottom of the pan.

    Heat over medium heat with the pan covered until warmed through. It’s not as fast as the microwave, but it does keep the meat moist.
