Country Style Ribs are a cut of meat that should be cooked low and slow to bring out their best flavor and make them tender to eat. Braising is a fantastic way to cook them, and this recipe takes some of your favorite flavors – beer, bacon, BBQ, and pork – and puts them into one delicious recipe. You can make this recipe your own by making additions like adding jalapeno peppers during the braise or using a spicy BBQ sauce if you like spicy food, or you can add pineapple and a sweet BBQ sauce if you like Hawaiian themed food! Let us know what you think of the recipe in the comments below.
- 3 lb LGCM Pork Country Style Ribs
- Custom Culinary Pork BBQ Spice (or your favorite BBQ seasoning)
- 4 slice LGCM Bacon (chopped)
- 2 Onion (sliced)
- 6 clove Garlic (minced)
- 1 can Beer (like Spotted Cow)
- 2.5 cup BBQ Sauce (divided)
Season Pork Country Style Ribs with BBQ seasoning and set aside. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium high heat and add the chopped bacon. Cook until crisp, then, using a slotted spoon, remove the bacon and set aside.
Add the ribs to the hot Dutch oven and cook in the bacon grease over medium high heat. Flip to brown all sides. Once all sides are browned, remove from Dutch oven, and set aside. Add the onion slices and cook until soft. When soft, add the garlic, and cook for one more minute.
After cooking garlic, pour in the beer and 2 cups of BBQ sauce to the Dutch oven. Use a wooden spoon to mix with the onions and garlic, and scrape up all of the browned bits on the bottom of the Dutch oven into the sauce. Add the bacon and ribs back into the Dutch oven, and bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, cover the Dutch oven, and put into an oven preheated to 350ºF. Bake for 1.5 hours, until the ribs are tender.
Once done baking, carefully remove the ribs from the Dutch oven and place on a foil lined baking sheet. They will be starting to fall apart, so using a spatula will help keep them in one piece. Brush each rib with the barbecue sauce and place under a broiler on high. Broil for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and serve. Enjoy!
