Boneless country-style pork ribs are the way to go here. You can get away with other pork cuts like cubed pork shoulder, but this one is definitely my favorite!
For this recipe, you'll need:
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Kosher salt
- Ground black pepper
Note: If you don't have the exact seasonings mentioned in the recipe, go ahead and use whatever you have available. Feel free to adjust the amount according to your taste too.
- If you go with garlic salt instead of garlic powder, no need for extra salt. And if you use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder, it'll add a lot more flavor.
- Just a heads up, my baking times only work for boneless country-style pork ribs. If you're using bone-in ribs, you'll have to tweak the cooking time.

How to bake boneless pork ribs
Ready to make absolutely delicious country-style ribs? Follow these quick and easy steps:
Preheat your oven
This is a very important step, so don't skip it! Starting with a preheated oven will help make sure your pork ribs cook evenly.
Preheat the oven to 350°F or 175°C.
Season pork ribs
In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Rub the mixture all over your pork ribs until they are fully covered. If needed, add more seasonings to taste!
Place ribs in baking dish
In a prepared baking pan or casserole dish, arrange your seasoned pork ribs in a single layer.
Make sure to leave some space between them, as you don't want them to be too close together.
Bake boneless pork ribs in oven
So, in the past, my favorite way is to use the slow cooker or crock pot because it makes the meat so tender. When I use the slow cooking method with regular ribs, the meat just falls off the bone and is fork tender good.
But, this time around, I wanted to try baking some boneless ribs in a roasting pan instead of making it slow-cooked.
It's still an easy recipe to cook country-style ribs!
The boneless spare ribs should be fully cooked in about 25 to 30 minutes in the oven.
Note: Check the meat with a thermometer to make sure it's done and ready to serve.

Here are some questions people often ask about my country-style pork ribs recipe. If you don't see your question in this list, please leave it in the comments.
At what temperature is pork fully cooked?
For perfectly cooked pork, make sure the internal temperature reaches 145°F. This applies to everything from boneless country-style ribs like the ones I'm using here to pork chops and pork tenderloin.
Should you wrap ribs in foil when you bake them?
This cooking method is mainly for ribs with bones. It's not really needed for boneless ribs. It helps speed up the cooking process by breaking down the connective tissue around the bone while making sure the ribs stay juicy and fall apart tender.
Can you use beef ribs instead?
Sure, you can totally use boneless beef ribs or pork ribs. Either one works like a charm!
When cooking beef ribs, you only need to reach an internal temperature of around 135°F for it to be fully cooked. Easy peasy!
These would taste great with keto BBQ sauce.
Should you boil ribs before baking them?
This method is actually known to make the ribs even more tender, but hey, it's not really necessary. My recipe will give you super tender ribs, even without boiling them.
