Here is a simple recipe for country style pork ribs. Country ribs are part of the loin on the pig. It’s usually very tender, especially if you cook it right. Another plus is, it’s usually cheaper than regular ribs. They also have more meat than regular “rack ribs”. You can purchase this cut of meat at almost any supermarket. Although this recipe is simple, it is far from quick. I slow cooked these in my oven on 325 for a couple of hours. Root beer is a key ingredient. While cooking the root beer with our meat, it cooks down and forms a brown sugar type of glaze and flavors the ribs throughout. By the time you are finished with your meat, it will be extremely tender . This recipe is especially for individuals that live in apartments that do not allow them to BBQ outside on a grill, or for those that simply aren’t grill experienced. You can have delicious barbecue without using a grill, int the comfort of your own home. Sure it may take a while to prepare, but you will be well satisfied with the outcome. I personally would serve potato salad, and green beans with this recipe .You may choose to use BBQ , or not. Again, the root beer is extremely flavorful. What kind of root beer? Honestly, I use whatever is one sale. With these, I used a supermarket generic brand of root beer. If you insist of using your favorite brand, please do so. Remember to preheat your oven while you’re preparing everything else!


Country Style Root Beer Glazed Ribs Recipe( Oven Baked)


2 lbs of Country Style Pork Ribs

1 Tsp of Seasoning Salt

1/2 Black Pepper

2 Tbs of minced Onion

2 Tbs of minced Garlic

1/4 cup of spicy brown mustard

  1. Your first step will be rinsing your meat. Remember to always wash your meat( with exception of ground meats) before cooking. Once your meat if rinsed, place it on a clean surface.
  2. Pour on your mustard all over your country style ribs, making sure you coat all surfaces. Once the meat if coated, sprinkle on your seasonings.
  3. Place your meat on your desired cookware, leaving approximately an 1/2 between each rib.
  4. Pour 1 cup of root beer into the pan. Make sure you do NOT pour the root beer directly over the meat, otherwise you will wash away some seasonings.
  5. Leave your meat uncovered and place your meat in the oven on 325 for 2 1/2 hours.

      Hi Gena, I add the Barbeque sauce last. Maybe your during your last 20 minutes of cooking. Enjoy your weekend and let me know how they turn out.

  1. says

    Would love to make these, but need to know when you add the remaining root beer! The look so good!! How does the root beer coat the meat if it is only in the bottom of the pan????? Just wondering…

    • Rosie says

      You add the remaining root beer when the rest dissolves. The root beer will cook down and form a syrup, You must turn the meat periodically to ensure each side has the root beer, AND turning the meat prevents it from burning.

  2. Jesses says

    How often do i need to mop the meat with the root beer and how often would you turn the meat, thank you.

    • Rosie says

      There is not a specific time on brushing the meat. But whenever you peak in, and it looks a lil drier than you’d like- give it a “mop” :-)

  3. Reese says

    Just to make sure, you do mean Tbs on the onion and garlic? Seems like a lot of seasoning after I mixed it all together.

    • Rosie says

      No. It’s correct. You can always follow your taste buds though. If you feel the need to cut back on the seasonings, feel free.

    Saw this when looking at newby instructions for backyard smoking. I cook “boneless pork ribs” all the time, but have never tried the root beer recipes – that’s going to change this weekend! Thanx! :-)

    I can’t believe how GREAT these ribs are. I had laid out some ribs and didn’t know what to do with them. Im so glad I found this recipe. My husband was upset that I was going to fix ribs in the oven instead of on the grill. I could tell he was dreading dinner but once he tried them he couldn’t stop eating them and our two daughters had seconds also. They were so fall apart tender and full of great flavor. My husband tried to save a couple of ribs for his lunch the next day but only one made it through the night. I did receive a call the next day at lunch time telling me how great the rib was. This definatly is a repeat recipe. Thanks for helping me give my family a memorable dinner and a hand me down recipe.

    • Rosie says

      I really appreciate you leaving such a sweet comment. When I first made these ribs, my sweetie wasn’t thrilled when I told him that I was going to bake them, but they quickly became on of his favorites. I’m so glad that your family enjoyed these ribs as well!

  7. Jennifer DeFreest says

    OMG! I made these last night for dinner and they were so good! I’m not a big fan of ribs, but my family loves them so I make them but not very often. I will be making these at least 3 or 4 times a month. I LOVED them! There were no left overs last night! So delicious! My family wants them for dinner again tonight! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, cant wait to try some of your others!

    Hi Rosie,
    My ribs released a lot of juice while cooking. Do you think I could take out most of the juice after the first hour and add another cup or root beer? There was so much waterjuice released from the ribs, the root beer never had a chance to get thick. Thanks so much!

  9. Patrick says

    First I saw your video then followed up on I heart recipes to get more specific details. I am so glad I did. Got enough ribs to feed a crowd for under six bucks and couldn’t match the quality and flavor your recipe provided at any price.
    Beautiful dish from a beautiful lady
    Thank you

  10. Kedline says

    Hey I really want to try this recipe but I don’t know where do I get the root beer from? Is it regular root beer Soda ? And can I cook my meat before I bake it cause I always do that ?

  11. Glen Ferguson says

    Been using this recipe for a while now, love the flavor the root beer gives to the ribs, the seasoning may seem too much for the job but it’s correct, I’ll continue to please my family with this easy tasty treat, Thanks Rose.

  12. Cortney says

    Hi Rosie! Im a beginner cook so this might sound like a dumb question but whenever you say chopped onions do you mean an actual onion chopped or the kind you get in a bottle where the spices are…and the same with the chopped garlic…are you chopping up cloves of garlic or using the pre minced jarred garlic? Please respond…id appreciate it. Thx Rosie :-)

    • says

      Hi Cortney! I don’t think those are dumb questions :-) . You can chop the onion and garlic or you can use the minced garlic in a jar, or dehydrated onion in the bottle. Whatever your preference is.

      • Cortney says

        Thank you so much for replying Rosie! I will be trying this recipe out on Sunday and I’ll be sure to let you know how they turn out :-)

  13. Cortney says

    Hi Rosie…pls help…so after adding the first cup of root beer at the beginning…as we’re periodically checking the meat during the cooking process and see the liquids drying up…is that whenever we pour more root beer in?

  14. Ruth says

    Oh my Goodness! These are absolutely the best! Thanks Rosie! Can’t wait to try some of your other recipes!
