For a down-home country meal, grill these juicy ribs and serve them with corn on the cob, baked beans, hush puppies and cornbread. These mouthwatering boneless ribs are a family favorite. Have plenty of ice cold sweet tea or lemonade on hand to wash them down. This recipe is courtesy of the National Pork Board.


  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless country-style ribs
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons molasses or 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Place ribs in a large bowl or resealable plastic bag, set aside. In 4-cup glass measure, stir together vinegar, water, oil, molasses, salt, red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper until salt is dissolved. Remove 1/2 cup marinade; set aside.
  2. Add remaining marinade to ribs; seal bag and marinate for 4 - 6 hours in the refrigerator. Remove ribs from marinade; discard marinade.
  3. Prepare medium-hot fire; grill ribs over indirect heat for 50 to 60 minutes or until pork is tender and the internal temperature reaches 160º F. Baste ribs twice with reserved sauce mixture during last 15 minutes of grilling.
