If the title of this post sounds like hours of prep, you couldn't be more mistaken. My local supermarket tends to put the boneless country style pork ribs on sale frequently. Whenever I see the BOGO (buy one, get one), I load up. To put this inexpensive meat to its best use, I rely on the simplest recipe ever.

I like to serve the ribs with a salad or cole slaw and some type of potato. For those of you who are diehard The Next Food Network Star fans, this is my inaugural post for the new winner, Melissa. I'll confess that I won't be watching her show. I'd need to take tranquilizers; she's way too hyper for me. I did, however, take this recipe off the Food Network site. It seemed too good to be true. It wasn't. It's so easy and absolutely delicious.

If there are leftovers on the ribs, let me suggest you shred the meat and make sandwiches. While the meat was heating up in the microwave, I ate the last potato...cold. Yes, it was still delicioius.


  1. Looks like a great meal. She is pretty darn perky but I have heard good things about this recipe!

  2. I am so trying this potato recipe soon.. the ribs sound delicious, and I LOVE simple!

  3. I have been thinking about those individual potato gratins ever since the show!

  4. Looks delicious. Glad to hear it was easy and not too time consuming. I had a feeling Melissa would win. She really had some great tips and is a sharp lady for sure. I haven't seen her show yet, but this recipe sounds great.

  5. This looks wonderful. The minute I saw you photo of the potatoes I knew it had to be the one from Melissa. I've been wanting to try them too. Glad they are good. I love boneless ribs. Great meal. Now I am going to have to look at all of your posts.
