So, now that we know what country-style pork ribs are, let’s take out your favorite bbq sauce, preheat the oven, and start cooking!
What temp should boneless pork ribs be cooked to?
Boneless pork ribs can be easily cooked in the oven, but what temp should they be cooked to? Well, it depends.
First of all, we need to consider a few things before we start to preheat the oven: what kind of ribs are you cooking?
There are three basic cuts of ribs on a pig: baby back, spare, and country style, each one with a different cooking process.
- Back ribs are usually referred to as “Baby Back Ribs” because they are smaller than spareribs. These are the upper ribs and they come from the parts of the ribs that are connected to the backbone, beneath the loin muscle.
- Spareribs are a delicious cut, obtained from the belly of the pig and we love them for their rich flavor. These are larger and meatier than the other types of ribs.
- Country style ribs are cut close from the pork shoulder. They are marvelously marbled which makes the meat fall apart when cooked properly.
Ribs are a very versatile cut and they can be either cooked in the oven or with a traditional slow cooking method. Whichever cooking process you decide to adopt, it’s important to keep in mind that pork is safe to eat once it reaches an internal temperature of 145 F degrees. Being much more marbled, your country style ribs are better cooked to 205-210 F degrees.
Reaching this temperature will make your meat tender and insanely tasty.
How long does it take to cook boneless ribs on 350?
Country-style pork ribs are such an easy recipe and, unlike other pork chops, they can be cooked in the oven fast. They will be ready in around 30 minutes at an oven temperature of 350.
Here are some tips on how to get the best out of your baked pork ribs:
- Know your pork ribs! As we said above, there are three main cuts of pork ribs you can easily find in your local market. If you aren’t sure which kind of ribs you are getting, ask the butcher for advice. Knowing the right cooking time for your ribs is fundamental for the good outcome of the recipe.
- When baking your boneless pork you can also wrap ribs in aluminum foil to seal the juices and lock in all that flavor. This will also help in case you should have spare ribs and with the clean-up!
- When cooking pork loin it’s best not to rely on cooking time alone, but consider using a meat thermometer to check on its doneness! You should go for an internal temperature of 195° to get that tender and delicious meat you’re craving.
How can you tell when your BBQ sauce ribs are done?
First of all, let’s break down one main point, which is fundamental when cooking boneless baked pork ribs: do you want your pork ribs done or ready?
Seems like a mere semantic issue, but when you bake ribs it makes all the difference and it’s important to understand this key point before you place your ribs on the baking dish.
Meat is considered “done” when the internal temperature at its thickest point reaches the point at which it is safe to eat, which can be obtained either with slow cooking or in the oven, with a different cooking time depending on the ribs recipe. That doesn’t mean your boneless ribs are“ready”, though.
To cook those tender ribs in the oven you need to make sure that the tough connective tissue and fat have broken down. This will make your baked ribs even more delicious because the meat will still be juicy and get that melt-in-mouth texture you’re looking for.
Be careful not to overcook your baked boneless pork ribs! Although you want to cook ribs until they reach at least 195 degrees, avoid leaving them on for much longer, or the meat will have an unpleasant mushy texture.
Any way you want to enjoy your cooked meat, if you choose to bake boneless pork ribs in the oven, you should consider getting a meat thermometer to check the internal temp. That way you will always know when to take your bbq ribs out of the oven!
