Before we get right down into the recipe for oven-baked boneless pork ribs dry rub, it would be wise to first talk about what boneless ribs are exactly.
Well, let’s get right to it. Boneless ribs are a cut of meat (particularly pork shoulder) that is sliced into long strips. These long strips always look like ribs.
If the boneless ribs are cooked and baked properly, they will become extremely soft and juicy.
All this is thanks to the fact that the meat is extremely marbled. Properly cooking this meat means a long cooking time at a low temperature.
In the market, you may find these cuts of ribs marked as simply plain country-style pork ribs or pork shoulder country-style ribs.
You might also find them marked as boneless ribs. My point here is that you shouldn’t worry about whatever names they are given.
Just know that when you are done cooking these rib cuts, you will definitely love how flavorful, soft, and juicy this oven-baked boneless pork ribs dry rub recipe is.
