This recipe for Grilled Country Ribs calls for baking the ribs first, then finishing them on the grill. The recipe includes the ingredients for a barbecue sauce, but if you’d like to try something a little different, this Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce is perfect for pork ribs!

Here’s an easy recipe for baked pork ribs: Country Style Ribs. You simply coat the ribs with a flour mixture, brown them in a skillet, and bake them in a sauce for a little over an hour. A few of the recipe reviewers said that they used a bottled barbecue sauce to make the recipe even easier!
I can’t wait to try this crockpot recipe: Asian Style Country Ribs with Black Bean Garlic Sauce. Most grocery stores carry jarred black bean sauce (which is made with fermented black beans), but it’s usually cheaper at an Asian market.
