Tasty Tuesday: These Don't Belong to Adam

A month or so ago, my friend the Beauty Queen (She’s not really, it’s just in reference to her hair! J) was looking for some comfort food that was easy to make and filling since she was cooking for her family and her mom and her husband as well. I knew that she also owned an Earl, so I quickly shot her a recipe over Facebook which inspired me to go ahead and make it a blog post as well. I mean, seriously, don’t we all need easy, filling, comfort food? Of course we do!

Here is what you need to make Slow-Roasted BBQ Pork Ribs:

1 package country style pork ribs (You can also use beef ribs, but being a Southern girl, I prefer pork.)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
½ medium onion, sliced
Bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (This is actually optional since these ribs are fantastic even without the BBQ sauce.)

First, heat oil over medium heat in a cast iron Dutch oven (see the Earl link above) or other stove to oven pan.

Next, season ribs with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.

Brown ribs on both sides in oil, about 2-3 minutes per side.

Place sliced onion on top of ribs.

Cook, covered, in 325 (300 degree for beef ribs) degree oven for 3 hours (2 hours for beef). Take ribs out of oven and pour BBQ sauce on top and bake, covered, for 30 more minutes.

The end result is a pot of ribs that are fall apart tender and finger-lickin’ good! Just the way ribs should be.

Going through loads of paper towel when these are served in the tree house,



  1. What a timely post. I happen to have some country ribs in the freezer and was wondering what I was going to do with em. ;)

    1. I guess you didn't know that one of my many talents is mind-reading! LOL!

  2. Hahaha! You can keep using that nickname as long as you one would ever suspect it's a backhanded compliment :) Totally pinning!
