Recipe: Quick / Easy Boneless-Chuck Country Style Beef Ribs

Yesterday I mentioned that I had planned to make ribs for dinner, but had not remembered to marinate them soon enough. Thankfully, the internet came to the rescue, and it was unnecessary for me to think of something else for dinner. I found a recipe on Food.com which promised I could have tender ribs in under three hours! Perfect! 


This was our dinner last night:
A baked potato, broccoli and a glass of Malbec were the perfect accompaniment to these ribs!

Following some of the directions from the recipe mentioned above, and incorporating comments people had written about it, this is how I cooked the ribs yesterday:


Quick and Easy Boneless Chuck Country-Style Beef Ribs


Directions:
1.  Place ribs in a large stockpot with enough water to cover them by at least 1 - 2 inches. (Enough to ensure they will remain submerged as the water evaporates when boiling.



Apparently, this cut is not even really from the ribs, but from the shoulder!



2.  Add about:

  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder 
  • 1/2 tsp.garlic powder 
  • 1 tsp. salt 
  • 3/4 tsp.pepper
  • 1 tsp. barbecue seasoning or 1 cup barbecue sauce. 
I considered adding some cut up onion and minced garlic, but decided not to bother - and it was just fine without it.


Be sure the meat is well submerged


3. Bring contents of pot to a boil, then keep at a low boil (just above a simmer) for at least 2 hours, or until meat is tender.
You can see here that a lot of liquid boiled away.  Perhaps I should have added more


4.  Remove meat from pot to a dish. Discard liquid.
Meat is cooked, but will be much tastier in a bit!


5.  Coat all sides of meat with your favorite barbecue sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce.)


Really slather on the barbecue sauce!


6. Grill meat, (you may first want to oil the grill so they don't stick) turning occasionally until heated through and the sauce has caramelized (about 10 - 15 minutes).  Remove from grill and serve with additional barbecue sauce if desired.
Turn occasionally, and grill until heated through.

Ribs can be quite greasy, but this was not the case with these.  The water I discarded had quite a bit of fat in it. Perhaps an added bonus of boiling the meat is that the end result becomes more lean.  

I was very pleased with this method, and will use it again! These ribs turned out very flavorful and tender! 
Mmmmm!

  2. My mom always pre-boiled ribs before grilling so that they would cook faster. Now that I think about it, they were always super-tender, falling off the bone! This is a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks Karen. The “ribs” I made were boneless, but I think they would have fallen off the bone if it was there!

  3. These look amazing Susan. I've heard of parboiling the ribs first but wasn't sure if it worked. mmmmmm my family loves ribs. I might go ahead and try them with the bone since I don't want to leave the doggies out :)

  9. I looked for an easy to follow recipe that didn't involve me staying in the kitchen for a long time haha. So your recipe had those two perfect elements. I could put the ribs on the stove on low and keep studying as I'm in my office making sure all is good. Excited to make these for my husband. We keep adding great recipes like yours to our first year as newlyweds! You made it to our list :) Keep posting! Blessings !

  10. Not sure what i did wrong followed everything boiled great was almost falling apart soon as grilled instanly dried out not so good flavor there but really really dry... any idea what i could have done wrong?

    1. I'm sorry to hear this. I'm not really sure why your ribs were dry. Perhaps you boiled or grilled them too long? Perhaps your cut of beef was unusually lean to begin with? If you try again, I hope you have better luck!

  12. YUM; these were great! I've never seen this cut of meat, so on a whim I bought a package yesterday. I had the Barbecue 3000 and used that along with the other spices you mentioned. The only change I made was to add a heaping teaspoon of Beef Better Than Boullion to the water. My husband said that next time he would oil the grates of the grill first because the sauce made the meat stick. But I really like this recipe and as a bonus, I think it would work great for entertaining or anytime you want a make-ahead meal. The meat could be simmered in advance, then refrigerated and grilled (or maybe even broiled?) at the last minute.
    Thanks for the recipe.

    1. I am so sorry - I am just seeing this question now. I'll respond now though, and hope this helps you or someone else!
      If you don't have a grill, you could follow the instructions through the step of coating the ribs with sauce , and then cook them under the oven broiler until they are warm and the surface has caramelized. Just be careful they don't burn or catch fire, and be prepared for some splatters in your oven.
