Helping Farmers in the United States

One of the things I love about sharing pork recipes is that they bring to light how pork helps U.S. farmers and their families. When you buy pork at your local grocery store, it comes from farmers in Utah and the U.S. You are supporting someone local, and I love that!

Pork is a Lean Cut of Meat

Pork is a lean meat and is packed with protein. In fact, it’s as lean as chicken, and there is more than 20 grams of protein in three ounces of pork.

How To Make Dutch Oven Boneless Pork Ribs

Start by spreading the rub on your boneless pork ribs. Get it on each side and rub it in.

Grab your Dutch oven, place it on the stove on medium heat, and add a tablespoon of olive oil. Sear the meat on each side for about one to two minutes. This will help seal in the juices while cooking. Then, remove the pork and set it aside.

Next, pour the chicken broth into the Dutch oven. Add the onions and carrots to the Dutch oven. Place the pork back into the Dutch oven on top of the onions and carrots. Pour the BBQ sauce on top. Finally, place the lid on top and put the pan into the oven.

Bake the ribs for one hour at 350 degrees, then lower the temperature to 300 degrees and cook for one more hour.

When is the Pork Done Cooking?

After cooking for two hours, the pork will be done. It will be deliciously fork-tender.

Variations

One of the great things about this recipe is that you can switch out some of the ingredients or add some new ones. Here are a few ideas:

  • Diced pineapple
  • Your favorite BBQ sauce
  • Your favorite rub
  • Add some apple cider or pumpkin spice flavors in the fall.

Make Ahead Tips

You can add the rub and BBQ sauce the day before cooking and allow it to marinate for at least 24 hours. Be sure to keep the pork in a sealed container in the refrigerator. You can then sear the meat and cook the dish when you’re ready.
