Why This Recipe Works

These Baked Pork Ribs work for 2 reasons: the cut and the cooking process.

By selecting the best cut of pork for its exceptional marbling, you are able to maintain moisture during baking. Then by slow cooking them in the oven, you are able to render that fat to give you flavorful and tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs.

Additionally, the combination of the dry rub spices and the barbecue sauce takes your ribs even further into flavor town, so don't be hasty with the seasonings, especially salt and pepper.

Ingredients

Pork:

When making boneless pork ribs in the oven, the best cut of pork to use is typically pork shoulder or pork loin. Both cuts are well-marbled with fat, which helps keep the meat moist and tender during the cooking process. This is especially important when making ribs in the oven to avoid drying out the meat.

Barbecue Sauce

Use your favorite brand of barbecue sauce for this recipe, or you can simply make your own with a few kitchen staples.

Homemade barbecue sauce:

In a saucepan, whisk together 1 cup of ketchup, ¼ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons molasses, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, ½ teaspoon smoked paprika, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon black pepper.

Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, then reduce the heat to low, allowing the sauce to continue to simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Make sure you taste your sauce and adjust the seasonings as desired. For a tangier barbecue sauce, add more vinegar, and for some more heat, add cayenne pepper or red chili flakes. Once your sauce has reached its desired thickness, remove it from the heat. You can store your sauce in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Seasonings:

These boneless pork ribs in oven are so versatile that you can play with so many different flavors when it comes to seasoning your ribs. You can experiment with jerk seasonings, curry spices, cajun, and even Korean BBQ flavors.

Tips

  • If your boneless pork ribs have excess fat or silver skin, you can trim it off prior to seasoning for leaner results.
  • You can line the baking pan with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  • Raw pork needs a lot of salt to tenderize and draw the juices out during the cooking process. Ensure you generously salt your meat before adding the dry rub.
  • Cooking times may vary depending on the thickness and size of your ribs, so it's a good idea to check for doneness periodically. Your ribs should be tender and cooked through. You can use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature of the ribs reaches at least 165F for safe consumption.
  • Once the ribs are cooked to your liking, remove them from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat and makes the ribs more flavorful.

  1. 4 stars
    I followed this recipe to the letter and found cooking at 250 degrees took 1.5 hours, not the 45 minutes indicated in the recipe. Was there a misprint in either the temp or the amount of time needed to reach the 165 on the thermometer?
