If you’re a fan of Barbecue Baked Beans, you’re in for a real treat because this recipe is amazing. Instead of a “from scratch” recipe, I’m backing all the way up to the last recipe I posted, Country Style Barbecue Ribs, and I’m stealing the leftover barbecue sauce to prepare this one. So, instead of adding bacon, which most recipes do, these baked beans have the drippings from country style ribs cooked right into the sauce. Plus, there’s a few other secret ingredients to kick this up even another level and it’s what every good steak house should be serving.
Legumes for Barbecue Baked Beans
If you’re wondering what kind of beans to use to make your Barbecue Baked Beans, Navy Beans are the prize favorite. The truth is however, you can use what ever you want. Though white beans are generally more popular in most recipes, you can use kidney or pinto without any problems. If you’re interested in saving some stewing time, you can even purchase canned beans. Doing that will eliminate an entire night of soaking and two hours of simmer.
Stewed Barbecue Baked Beans
If you’re curious why this Barbecue Baked Beans recipe isn’t baked at all, you wouldn’t be the first. Some say that it’s a myth that Baked Beans are actually even baked and that the beans are really stewed more than anything. That suggests that anyone that takes the name literal and bakes there beans instead is wrong, right? Nah, it’s just another efficient way to apply heat. Lot’s of recipes call for grilling, so that they can get that smokey flavor, and that can be a great way to cook them too. So, I think it’s just a matter of personal preference. I simmer mine on the stove out of convenience because it’s easier to just pull the lid and stir than dealing with the ends and outs of the oven.

If you love ribs, you’re going to love this Country Style recipe because it’s got it all. These ribs can easily be cooked outdoors on a grill or inside on a stove and in the oven. I season the ribs with my Blackened Seasoning recipe, then braise them in barbecue sauce and pineapple juice. These ribs are finished off in the oven to caramelize the sauce and firm up the out side of the rib. The results are a fall of the bone tender barbecue rib that, literally, melts in your mouth.
What are Country Style Ribs
Wikipedia describes Country Style Ribs as the blade end of the loin close to the pork shoulder and they’re considered more of a chop than a rib because the bones aren’t rib bones at all. They’re the Shoulder Blade or “Scapula” bones behind the shoulder. The result is a loin cut portion that is more than 3/4 meat vs. bone. The benefit to this, if it isn’t obvious, is more bang for your buck. An average rack of baby back ribs weighs 3 to 4 pounds and so does a package of Country Style ribs but the baby backs cost twice as much. So, by purchasing these ribs instead, not only are you cutting the cost in half, you’re getting twice the eats because there’s a lot more meat.
Seasoning Country Style Ribs
One of the secrets to any good rib recipe rings true for these Country Style ribs, as well. You’ve got to have a good rub or seasoning. For this recipe, I use my Blackened Seasoning and I showed you how to make that in the last YouTube video and blog post. There’s other substitutions that can be used like Old Bay or a Crawfish Boil Seasoning. Zatarain’s and Slap Your Mama are both good choices. Even my Brisket Rub recipe would be excellent for these ribs because all of these have the same basic ingredients with small twists and variations is all but will have very similar results.
Braised Country Style Ribs
Essentially, this Country Style Ribs recipe is braised and baked but many avid grill masters do the exact same thing on the grill. So everything you learn here can be applied to your barbecue if you want to grill this recipe instead. These ribs are braised in a mixture of barbecue sauce and Pineapple juice. You can replace the pineapple juice with beer instead, if you want to go that rout. It’s a real common practice with just as good results, just slightly different taste. Season and sear your ribs, then braise in the sauce for 1 1/2 hours and grill for 5 to 10 minutes to caramelize.
Oven Baked Country Style Ribs
Now that you know that you can take this Country Style Ribs recipe to the grill let’s talk about how easy it is to bake in the oven. 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, after the braising. That’s it and that’s all. So, if you don’t think you can handle cooking these ribs after you watch my video tutorial, I’ve done something terribly wrong. Good luck!
