Cooked bananas, spiced with cinnamon work well with the pork as well. You can use cherries, or pineapple, apple, peaches, apricots, or nectarines. Papaya works well too.

My personal favorite way to cook country style ribs is on my Webber Kettle, over a solid bed of charcoal, with apple wood placed on the coals. Season the meat with salt and pepper, or substitute Adolph's meat tenderizer for the salt,a and stab thoroughly with a fork. Place on the grill and cover. Close all vents half way and cook to a meat temperature of 150' F. Remove and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with sweet potatoes and a bright green veggie. Again, I like to top these with a good apple sauce, though I have used a dry rub with these.

Enjoy.

All of the afore mentioned are mighty good. I would only add that country style ribs seasoned with just salt and pepper, cooked low and slow, are mighty good on their own merit. Served with mashed potatoes, maybe some snaps or butterbeans, homemade biscuits...Shucks, now I'm hungry!!!!
In the crockpot with sauerkraut is mighty good too.

Hoot, you beat me to it.
I really like to season them with salt and pepper, sear in a pan, then cook for
an hour or so in sauerkraut. I add a sliced onion, a bit of pickling spice and some
garlic to the pot, and as much water as needed to float everything.
Just before serving, I make quickie dumplings with flour and egg!
One of my favorite meals; unfortunately, not one of my wife's, so I rarely eat it, sighhh.

Ya know, one thing I haven't tried with country style ribs that must might be great is to put them into a foil pouch with some onion, spuds or rice, carrots, garlic, and butter, all seasoned with S & P. I bet that would be pretty tasty.

Another favorite with country style ribs that hasn't been mentioned is to quickly cook them over charcoal, and then immerse into a pot of baked beans that are just starting to cook, with onion pieces, molasses, a bit of mustard, and brown sugar. Sometimes I'll substitute maple syrup for the brown sugar. Optionally, throw in a hint of chili powder to add a bit of zing.

This really could go on forever you know. The ribs and beans could be enhanced by cooking the ribs over charcoal with mesquite, or apple wood too.

And don't forget about bean soup. The ribs would add such flavor to a good bean soup.

Yep, it's official. I'm now hungry.

Oh, and my wife doesn't like kraut either. I dont' get to eat it but once in a blue moon, when she's off somewhere, and I know she'll be fed there instead of at home.

Baked in an oven bag or a crock pot with apple juice, ripe bell peppers, a little brown sugar and garlic will give you a refreshing alternative.

I agree with Uncle Bob.. dry roast in an oven is great way to cook them. I like Emeril's seasoning.. just liberally coat them.

Everyone agrees with Uncle Bob. He's an agreeable fellow, and a darned good cook too.
