Country Style Ribs in Oven

Country Style Ribs were on sale at our local grocery outlet so I stocked up on a few family packs. If you aren’t familiar with country style ribs, they aren’t actually ribs. They are cuts of pork shoulder which makes them a lot cheaper. They also have more meat on them than ribs. So, if you are looking for a budget friendly meal for the family, look no further.

Country Style Ribs (As many as needed for your family)
1 bottle Italian Dressing
1 bottle favorite BBQ sauce

Place ribs in bowl and cover with Italian Dressing.
Cover bowl and place in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
Once marinated, preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Place ribs on lined baking sheet for easier cleanup.
Cover with foil and bake for 2 hours.
Remove from oven and drain liquid from pan.
Reduce heat to 275 degrees.
Cover all sides of ribs with BBQ sauce.
Bake UNCOVERED for an additional 45 minutes.
Remove from oven and serve.
These are simple to make. They are juicy, tender, and drool-worthy.
