Baked Country-style Ribs in Oven Recipe

Baking country-style pork ribs Patrick's way.

No grill, no smoker, no problem! Here's how to cook country cut ribs in the oven.

Country-Style Ribs are Done!

Boneless country-style ribs are one of my favorite cuts of pork. These strips of meat are cut from the shoulder of a pig, near the loin. They are meatier than other cuts of pork and are made from the same area as pork butt and pork shoulder roasts. They are fantastic smoked, grilled and even baked in the oven using my recipe below.


This recipe serves two, so please modify it accordingly to fit your needs.

  • 3 country style pork ribs
  • BBQ dry rub
  • BBQ sauce


How to bake country-style pork ribs in the oven:

  • Apply the dry-rub to the pork and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and let them room temperature*.
  • Preheat the oven to 240°F.
  • Place the ribs in an oven-safe pan, lined with heavy aluminum foil, and wrap tightly.
  • Put the country-style ribs in the oven and bake for 2 hours.
  • Remove the pan, and unwrap the foil. Brush the top of the ribs with BBQ sauce.
  • Return to oven and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
  • Once done, remove from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  • Serve with your favorite sides, like mac and cheese, for a tender and juicy pork meal.

* Note: Letting meat sit at room temperature before cooking will help it cook more evenly and with a shorter cooking time.

Patrick's oven baked pork tips:

Sometimes you don't have time to get the smoker out. No worries, pork tastes great cooked in the oven too! Before baking, coat the country-style ribs with a generous amount of BBQ dry rub, then refrigerate for a few hours. This will add rich BBQ flavors to the pork, making for a simple oven baked dish!
