6 oz Boneless Country Style Ribs 1 tsp each: Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder 1 cup Water 1 tbsp Olive Oil
Recipe is for 2 - 3 oz servings.
Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet on medium heat. Mix together spices and rub over ribs. Add to skillet, searing meat on both sides to seal in the juices. When both sides are a nice medium brown add the water, cover and let simmer for 45 minutes to an hour. Remove from water, slice, and serve.
These are AWESOME!!! My boys went crazy over them. They were soooooo tender and flavorfull. We put BBQ sauce on the side to dip them in but I'm sure they would be just as good if cooked with it on. Can't wait ot make them again this summer, THANKS!!
Was a bit skeptical, but made these as listed adding a bit of paprika and chile powder and omitting salt. Seared in oil and then put in crock pot for 4 hours on low. OMG they were fantastic! Added bottled sauce (Honey barbecue) but they were great without. A keeper:)
Omitted the salt but substituted chicken bouillon for the water. It was pretty good. Wasn't falling apart tender after 45 mins, so will have to either bump up the heat or simmer longer. Everyone loved regardless. Will be eating this one again.
This technique is an excellent way of cooking country style ribs. I thought they were extremely bland when cooking with just water, so I started using beef stock instead, and wow! so much more flavor! I suppose a vegetable stock would be pretty good too.
