Today's Recipe- Baked Barbecue Country Style Pork Ribs

I love to cook for my family but my recent return to work leaves little room to cook daily. I have to squeeze in all an housework, school work, and personal time in on the weekend. I have found that making meals that I can bake for about an hour or so while I'm working on other things, is the best way to go on my super busy days. Here is one of my family's favorite.

1 pack of country style pork ribs
2 tablespoons of honey
1 bottle of honey barbecue sauce
garlic powder
seasoned salt
parsley flakes
1 small vidaila onion

1. Place frozen pork ribs in a baking pan. Cooking them while frozen will help them to remain moist will baking. When you purchase the ribs from the grocery store wash them well and them store them in the freezer until you are ready to cook them.

2. Season pork ribs with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and season salt on both sides.

3.Chop onion and place over the seasoned pork ribs.

4. Drizzle honey over ribs and then pour barbecue sauce over the ribs. Be sure to cover every rib.

5. Cover ribs with foil and bake at 325 for about 1 hour and 20 minutes.

6. Remove foil, sprinkle with parsley flakes, and cook for another 30-45 minutes.

7. Let the ribs rest about 20 minutes before you cut and serve them.

I love how moist the country style ribs are when you cook them slowly. I usually pair this dish with rice, green beans, and rolls.
