The Best Oven Baked Country Style Pork Ribs
Ribs can seem intimidating to make, but it’s really a simple process!
The first thing to know about cooking pork ribs is it’s a 2 step process. The meat of the ribs needs to soften, so they either need to be steamed or boiled first. After the meat is nice and tender, the ribs are grilled or broiled to give the meat a delicious crust.
The second thing to know is how to make the perfect BBQ sauce. For these ribs, I make a light and tangy mustard and vinegar style BBQ sauce, similar to a North Carolina BBQ sauce. If you haven’t tried this style of sauce, it’s a must try! It adds just the right amount of flavor and tangy flavor without overpowering the flavor of the meat.
I use my Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-In Wall Oven to steam the ribs. This oven is perfect for steaming, baking, and grilling. I use it to simply steam vegetables quickly (no messy water and steamer basket!), but also to make my son’s favorite foods — which happen to be baguettes, soft pretzels, and pizza. The combination of steam and convection means breads come out perfectly baked, like a professional bakery, every time.
Steaming the ribs in this oven is effortless and definitely the least messy option!

How to Make Oven Baked Pork Ribs
Step 1: Place ribs on a baking tray, and season them generously with salt and pepper. Skip this step if you don’t have a steam oven to cook the ribs.
Step 2: Steam the ribs in the Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-In Wall Oven for 1 1/2 hours.
How to Boil Ribs: If you do not have a steam oven, add the ribs to a large pot of boiling water, and simmer them for 30 minutes. Take the ribs out and pat them dry. Season them generously with salt and pepper.
Step 3: Whisk together all the ingredients for the vinegar-based BBQ sauce in a sauce pot, and then simmer them for 30 minutes to reduce by half. Stir the sauce occasionally.
Step 4: Brush the steam (or boiled) ribs with the BBQ sauce, giving them a generous coating. Change the settings of the Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-in Wall oven to Grill, and grill them for an additional 10 minutes to give the ribs a nice crust.
If you do not have a steam oven, turn your oven on to broil, or your outdoor grill on to high, and broil or grill your ribs for about 10 minutes.
Step 5: Once the ribs are cooked, give them another brush with the remaining BBQ sauce, and then cut along the ribs to serve.
