Well you have already boiled them so the damage is done. Cook them in the oven now until done. Next time though, do not boil them that is one of the worst things you can do to ribs. It gets you nothing and IMO ruins the flavor and texture.

I'd stop boiling them at once!

I never boil ribs. You are losing flavor into the water.

From here, put them into a hot oven with a dry rub to flavor them and add some BBQ sauce for the last 15-20 minutes if you like them wet.

They're done when the meat has shrunk back on the bone ends and the bones feel a little loose.

I was in a time crunch one night with a small rack of ribs. I put them in a pot just covering them with water and with an onion garlic crushed red peppers celery stalk s&p thyme and brought them to a boil and then simmered for about 15 min. then took them out, put them on the grill to brown up baste with bq sauce with a lil of the simmering water mixed in and they were fantastic. I do this often for something different - not alot - most of time its a rub- set awhile and grill.

I also saved the broth, strained it from the veggies etc. put into 1/2 cup containers and froze it. Used it for when i did a pork roast or when i made pig in blankets,stew, etc

I boil my spare ribs in a mix of broth, bourbon, hotsauce, onion, garlic, and one can of stout. I put all the ingredients into the pot (including the ribs) and bring to a simmer. Then I pull and immediatly grill on a mesquite charcoal grill. On the last 4 flips I sauce each side (I like a little carmel carbon on my ribs). People seem to like them. I get requests. They do not come out as tender as slow cooked ribs but sometimes I want a little substance to my ribs.

PS. I never do this to babyback, only spare and tips.

I simmer my country style ribs with water, beer, and pickling spice. Then finish on the grill. Very tender.
As for how long, depends on, well, everything. Til they're done. Pull on a bone, take a fork to some meat.

I never boil ribs. I par-cook them in the oven in a covered dish for about an hour. Then finish on the grill, or in the case of me and others like me who live on the 5th floor with no backyard, uncovered in the oven with the sauce.
