    Country Style Beef Ribs

    My easy baked Country Style Beef Ribs are melt in your mouth tender, and full of meaty barbecue flavor.

    I make sure to season them generously before popping them in the oven for that low and slow cook. Once they’re perfectly tender, I give them a generous slather of my favorite BBQ sauce. Trust me, it’s a BBQ dream come true!

    It’s hard to think about classic American comfort food without barbecue crossing your mind. From BBQ Chicken to Ribs, it’s a culinary tradition.

    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 these beef ribs is how I make them super tender and let all the flavors mix together just right.With a decent amount of marbling, these ribs are exceptionally forgiving.

    Ingredients Needed

    • 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. I like Sweet Baby Ray’s.

    How to Cook Boneless Beef Ribs in the Oven

    1. Prep the ribs: I start by placing a big piece of foil on a baking sheet. Then, I dry off the ribs and put them on the foil. After that, I brush them with olive oil and sprinkle on the spice mix. I wrap the foil around the ribs to make a packet.

    2. Bake: I pop those beef ribs into my oven set at 300°F and let them bake for about two and a half hours until they’re beautifully tender.

    3. Bring on the BBQ: Then I take the ribs out of the oven and unwrap them, being careful of the steam. Then, I brush barbecue sauce all over them and put them back in the oven, uncovered for another 15 minutes.

    Expert Tips

    • Quality Matters: I always go for ribs with lots of marbling. That fat melts as they cook, keeping the meat juicy and packed with flavor.
    • Foil Is Your Friend: I like to wrap my ribs in foil at first. It keeps all the moisture locked in, making them super juicy and tender. And it makes cleanup easier.
    • Sauce Timing: Wait until the ribs are tender before slathering them with BBQ sauce to avoid burning.
    • Rest the Ribs: I always make sure to let the ribs rest before serving. It gives the juices time to redistribute, making every bite tender and juicy.

    What to Them Serve

    Well, pretty much anything that goes with any other barbecue! Here are my top picks.

    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.

    Country Style Beef Ribs

    Yield: 6 servings
    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Cook Time: 2 hours 45 minutes
    Total Time: 2 hours 55 minutes

    My Country Style Beef Ribs are well seasoned, baked to tender perfection, then slathered with your favorite BBQ sauce.


    • 2.5 pounds beef country style ribs
    • 2 Tbsp olive oil
    • 2 tsp salt
    • 2 tsp garlic powder
    • 2 tsp paprika
    • 1 tsp onion powder
    • 1 tsp black pepper
    • BBQ sauce


    1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
    2. Pat ribs dry with a paper towel. Rub on olive oil. Combine dry spices, then rub all over ribs.
    3. Wrap ribs in foil, then place on baking sheet. Bake 2.5 hours, or until the ribs are fork tender.
    4. Open foil. Slather BBQ sauce all over ribs, then bake uncovered another 15 minutes. If desired, broil for a few minutes at the end to caramelize the sauce.
    5. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before cutting.


    1. Check the doneness with an instant read thermometer. Beef is safe to eat at 145°F, but for fall apart tender we cook to 185°F.
    2. Leftovers: 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, my 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.
