Country style spare ribs can be cooked in the oven or in a slow cooker with barbecue sauce. Boneless ribs will be especially tender after cooking in a slow cooker all day, or after baking in the oven for a few hours. Although there many ways to make boneless country style spare ribs, if you want tender ribs, you need to spend some additional time cooking or baking them.
