Make a Marinade

Step 1: Combine Your Ingredients

Combine wet and dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix 1 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 cup each of white vinegar and lemon juice, 3 tablespoons honey, 1/4 cup olive oil, 4 crushed garlic cloves and 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper.

Step 2: Place Ribs in Bag

Place 2 pounds of boneless beef country ribs in a plastic bag with a zip-seal closure. Pour the marinade over the ribs.

Step 3: Refrigerate for Hours

Seal the bag and place it in your refrigerator for 12 to 14 hours. Rearrange the bag every few hours to ensure even marinating.

Discard the marinade sauce after the marinating time is up, as advised by the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Braise Your Country-Style Beef Ribs

Step 1: Add Oil and Brown

Add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a skillet and then heat the skillet over medium heat. Brown the ribs on all sides.

Step 2: Add Broth and Boil

Add 1 1/2 cups of low-sodium beef broth to the skillet to help manage the salt content of your dish. According to the American Heart Association, healthy adults should consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day.

Allow the broth to come to a boil.

Step 3: Cover and Simmer

Turn down the stove burner to medium-low. Cover the skillet and simmer the ribs in the liquid for up to two hours or until the meat is fork tender.

Grill to Finish

Step 1: Prep the Grill

Set a gas grill to medium heat or allow the coals on a charcoal grill to heat to medium.

Step 2: Place Meat on Grill

Place the ribs directly on the grill grate and close the grill cover.

Step 3: Turn and Baste

Grill for four to six minutes on a gas grill or five to eight minutes on a charcoal grill, turning occasionally. Baste with a new batch of marinade or use a commercial barbecue sauce.
