Oven BBQ Country-Style Ribs
If you enjoy a yummy feast of ribs every once in a while, then you’ll love this recipe for Oven BBQ Country-style Ribs. Imagine, barbecuing ribs in your oven rather than outside on the grill. Either way, this rib recipe is one of the best pork dinner ideas we’ve come across in the long time, simply because the meat stays so tender. The trick is to cook the ribs at a low temperature for a long period of time until they’re done. When you do this, you allow for the fat to baste the meat as it slowly melts, keeping it moist in the process. By the time you take them out of the oven, the ribs are so succulent that they almost melt right out of the pan.
As far as meat goes, pork often gets a bad rap due to its high cholesterol and fat content. Taking everything in moderation, eating pork once or twice a month can, in fact, be relatively good for you. Looking at the nutritional value of pork for a moment, four ounces of country-style boneless pork shoulder, as is called for in this barbecued ribs recipe, is very high in protein as well as high in thiamin and iron. Combine this meat dish with a side dish of salad or roasted veggies, and you’ve got a well-rounded, nutritious meal on your hands. As with any recipe, it’s always best to use organic ingredients whenever you can, for the healthiest meal possible. And speaking of good health practices, it’s also important to review your basic food safety guidelines before making anything in the kitchen, especially when you are cooking meat dishes like this one. Make sure you lather up your hands and give them a good wash before and after handling your pork, and wash down your counters, cutting board, utensils, and entire work area after the meat goes into the oven. And, just in case you are working with pre-frozen pork, be sure to let it thaw out in the refrigerator rather than at room temperature before you cook it. You want your meat to remain chilled even while it’s defrosting – that way, bacteria aren’t able to grow. You can also thaw your meat out in the microwave or in a bowl of cold water in the refrigerator, refreshing the water every thirty minutes to avoid bacteria growth.

After you’ve enjoyed your delicious country- style ribs recipe, you will want to take proper care of your leftovers, as well. Make sure you separate large quantities of your leftovers, storing them in relatively small containers – that way, they will cool down much more quickly once they’re in the fridge. You might want to tag or mark these containers with the day’s date as well, so you will know exactly how old they are, when it’s still okay to eat them, and when to throw them out.
