Variations

The barbecue sauce isn’t mandatory for this dish. Feel free to try out different sauces like teriyaki, honey mustard, chipotle, hoisin, chimichurri, A1, Worcestershire, or white barbecue sauce. Alternatively, you can opt for a dry rub on your ribs. Barbecue rub, paprika, chili powder, cumin, or simply some salt and pepper.

FAQs

Can I use bone-in pork ribs instead of boneless ones?

Yes, you can. The cooking time might vary, but this recipe can be easily amended to accommodate bone-in ribs.

Could I use a different sauce?

Sure, you can use any basting sauce you like. I would recommend honey mustard, chipotle, or teriyaki sauce.

Is this a recipe I can make ahead of time and reheat it later?

They are best served straight away, but you can reheat them if preferred. Just cover them with foil and add a dash of water when reheating so that they don’t dry out.

Serving Suggestions

These ribs work as a side, appetizer, or main course. Here are some of the recipes I would pair with these ribs:

  • Blue cheese mashed potatoes: Such a rich and delicious side. These mashed potatoes truly deserve a spot alongside your boneless pork ribs.
  • Steak and potato salad: Replace the steak with your ribs in this recipe and you have a filling, flavorful meal. Veggies, potatoes, and protein, altogether on one plate.
  • Jenny’s cornbread: Another incredible side dish that couldn’t go better with a plate of ribs. The barbecue sauce and Southern-style cornbread are a match made in heaven.
  • Perfect grilled asparagus: A vibrant, nutritious side dish that adds a little green to your plate. Pair these delicious ribs with some grilled asparagus for a well-rounded dinner.

How to Store Juicy Boneless Pork Ribs

This is an easy recipe to make in bulk to enjoy later. These ribs aren’t quite as good when reheated, but they will still hit the spot. Let your leftover ribs cool before wrapping them in plastic wrap or foil to keep them from drying out. Then, seal the in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge if you plan on eating them within 4 days. Otherwise, they will keep well in the freezer for up to 3 months.

When reheating, ensure you’ve allowed them to defrost fully in the refrigerator overnight. Then, you can place them back in the oven (wrapped in foil with a little water as discussed above) or in the microwave until they are heated through.
