Dutch oven cowboy-style pork ribs

I wanted to give you the easiest pork ribs recipe you’ve ever seen. We cooked these ribs cowboy-style in a dutch oven.

It’s as easy as filling the pan and close the lid. After a couple of hours, you have fall-off-the-bone ribs with the best-cooked beans.


  • 4 baby back ribs
  • 6 onions
  • your favourite bbq rub
  • 1/2 a litre of ketchup
  • 100 grs of smoked bacon
  • 100 ml of maple syrup
  • 50 ml of apple cider vinegar
  • 100 ml of bourbon
  • 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 600 grams of beans

How to

  1. Take the silverskin off the ribs by sticking a dull dinner knife between the bones and the silverskin. Lift the silverskin so you can get a finger underneath and pull it off. Sprinkle an even layer of the dry rub on both sides of the ribs.
  2. Grease the inside of the dutch oven with some pork fat or butter. Slice the onions roughly into rings and stack them along the inside of the pan.
  3. Roll the baby back ribs up and place them in the dutch oven against the onion rings.
  4. Now fill the pan with the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Fire up your barbecue with a temperature of 140 to 150°C (284 to 302F).
  6. Place the dutch oven and close the lid.
  7. After 3 hours you are rewarded with a complete meal.
