Boneless Pork Ribs

4 lbs. boneless pork ribs
1/2-1 tsp. garlic salt
fresh ground pepper
K.C. Masterpiece BBQ Sauce
Kraft Honey BBQ Sauce

These can be cooked on the grill, oven, crockpot, or a combination of cooking methods. For baking: Place meat in roasting pan or 9 x 13" baking pan. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes to an hour. (This is approximate, as I often start baking mine while still partially frozen and bake up to 2 hours.) Remove meat from pan. Mix 1 part honey BBQ, to 2 parts KC BBQ sauce. Add a 1/2 cup or so of the pan juice and mix with sauce to desired consistency. Pour off any extra liquid. Place ribs back in pan and pour sauce over top. Bake an additional 20-30 minutes.

For crockpot: Place meat in crockpot. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. An hour before serving remove meat and add sauce as described above. Place all back in pot and serve when ready.

Grill: Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Grill each side 3 minutes. Brush with the 2 BBQ sauces mixed together and grill until done. If you want the grill flavor, but want it made ahead, after grilling 3 minutes a side, toss in crockpot with the BBQ sauce on low until ready to serve.

(I have tried to make homemade BBQ sauce, but never found a recipe I love. I grew up on Kraft, so probably prefer the taste. Eventually, this is the combination I came to like the best. If anyone has a good homemade recipe, I'd love to hear yours. Of course, it won't be as easy as opening a bottle of premade.)

Hi, Joanne! I'm going to make these on Friday. But anyway, I don't have a good homemade recipe for BBQ sauce, but the best sauce I've ever had is from back home where I grew up. I think it's only made in Iowa, it's called Cookie's Barbeque Sauce. It is the BEST! Everytime family or friends visit us, I ask them to please bring us a bottle. They usually forget, but I am going to see if I can buy it online. Good stuff!

Ann, I had to look up the sauce you were talking about. I found their site:

You can order it online!

Oh yay!! I will order it then :) I am making these ribs tonite. I think I will try them in the oven. I tried ribs in the crock pot once and they just didn't turn out right. I'll let you know how it goes! I am loving these recipes :)

Ann, I was thinking of you last night and I thought, "it won't be long before she has a food blog of her own!" Afterall, when your kids get older, they're gonna want your recipes, so start saving them.
