Carolina Country-Style Ribs
- 1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs

- 1 cup water, cold
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons molasses OR 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
Place ribs in a large bowl or resealable plastic bag; set aside. In 4-cup glass measure, stir together vinegar, water, oil, molasses (or brown sugar), salt, red pepper flakes, and cayenne pepper until salt is dissolved. Remove 1/2 cup marinade; set aside. Add remaining marinade to ribs. Seal bag and marinate for 4 to 6 hours in the refrigerator. Remove ribs from marinade; discard marinade.
