Best Ever Country Style Ribs - 2 Hour Cook

Every-time I make these ribs the family says why don't you make this more often. Country style ribs are really not even ribs but are cut from the sirloin or rib end of the pork loin. The meatiest variety of ribs, country-style ribs are sold either as “slabs” or in individual servings. These pork ribs are perfect for those who want to use a knife and fork.
