These boneless country-style ribs are baked to perfection with a spicy rub and your favorite barbecue sauce. It's an easy, convenient meal, a great choice for any night of the week.

Out of the many positive comments and reviews, there were several slight changes and recommendations worth noting.  One person replaced the Cajun seasoning with smoked paprika and another sweetened her barbecue sauce with a tablespoon of brown sugar.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless country-style ribs
  • 3 teaspoons ​Cajun seasoning (see homemade mix, below)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce

How to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 325 F.
  2. Dry the country-style ribs with paper towels to dry.
  3. Combine the Cajun seasoning blend with the garlic powder and onion powder. Rub the seasoning mixture over all sides of the ribs. Note: If your Cajun seasoning is salt-ree, sprinkle the ribs lightly with kosher salt as well.
  4. Line a shallow baking pan with foil; coat the foil with oil or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Arrange the ribs in the prepared baking pan and then top with onion slices.
  1. Cover with another piece of foil and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the ribs are very tender.
  2. Remove the top piece of foil and brush the ribs with barbecue sauce.
  3. Bake uncovered for about 15 minutes longer, or broil for about 2 to 3 minutes. 

Serves 4.

Quick Cajun Seasoning: Blend 1 tablespoon of salt with 1 1/2 teaspoons of paprika, 1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or less), 1 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf thyme.


If you have a favorite commercial barbecue sauce, use that, or make a homemade sauce. This beer barbecue sauce is a good choice. Or use this sauce made with molasses.

Reader Comments and Suggestions

"Tenderest country ribs ever! I just served this to my family, and everybody raved about it. The ribs came out tender and moist with wonderful flavor. I did one extra thing. There was a lot of liquid in the pan after the first (covered) cooking period, so I drained the pan before brushing on the barbecue sauce. This definitely goes in my personal recipe book. Thanks, Diana!" Chris B., VA

"Until last night I had NEVER made ribs before and a lot of the recipes I saw online were extremely time-consuming. This recipe, however, was fast enough, simple enough and totally delivered! I followed it to the letter: No tweaking required!! The ribs were so tender and had just the right amount of flavor. I will for sure make this again." Velvet

"I have used this recipe easily 20 times in the past year. For ingredients, I usually get 4 pounds of the boneless beef country-style ribs from Walmart along with a single onion. I then double the rest of the ingredients and follow the instructions. The only thing I've changed is to broil them for only 3 minutes, as the BBQ burns really quickly. The ribs turn out really tasty and refrigerate well. Highly recommended!"
