Country Style Ribs Recipe

Paul SidoriakPaul Sidoriak
Country-style pork ribs are a delicious and affordable alternative to spare ribs or baby back ribs. Packed with flavor, these ribs cook in a fraction of the time because we use the Ninja Foodi Grill to cook them instead of an outdoor grill or smoker.

It's not uncommon for country-style ribs to have some boneless pieces and some with the bone in the same package. 
This is normal.
Although the bone may add some small amount of additional flavor to the meat, the boneless pieces are just as delicious as the ones with the bone attached.

If you're looking for smoke flavor in this dish, consider sourcing a smoky barbecue sauce or seasoning rub to add a kiss of smoke. Although I do enjoy a good barbecue sauce, I prefer these ribs with no sauce at all so I can enjoy the rich pork flavors.
