Super Tender Home Style BBQ Ribs
My step father made this when we were with him and WOW was it tender! It takes a while but minimal work, loads of flavor, and the meat is so tender that it just falls off the bone! Truthfully, the BEST ribs I have EVER tasted! If you like ribs you have got to try this recipe.
6 large country style pork ribs (they must be country style)
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
Your favorite meat seasoning (Johnny's Seasoning Salt, Lawry's, etc...)
Your favorite BBQ sauce (Masterpiece)
1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
2. Place 6 large country style pork ribs into a 9x13 baking dish (if you cook less ribs you can use a smaller baking dish; if you cook more ribs you can use a large dish). Add the apple cider vinegar to the baking dish and season the meat with your favorite meat seasoning.
3. Tightly seat the pan with aluminum foil (this helps keep the steam in) and place in the preheated for 2 hours.
4. After two hours in the oven, remove the meat and the aluminum foil (it will be reused so be careful). Turn the meat over and season again with your favorite meat seasoning (be generous; this is where your flavor is coming from). Increase the oven temperature to 250 degrees. Reseal tightly with the aluminum foil and return the oven for 2 more hours.
5. After the second two hours, remove from the oven let rest on the counter for at least 10 minutes (there will be a lot of juice in the pan from the cider and meat). Just before serving, remove from the pan and slather with your favorite BBQ sauce. Broil or BBQ for about five minutes on each side (you are just trying to reheat the meat and caramelize the sauce). Remove from grill or oven and serve warm with side dishes.
