Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

After a busy day there's nothing better than something easy for dinner. And these ribs match that criteria. You could do this with chicken just as easily but we really enjoyed the boneless country style ribs. Easy to fix....easy clean-up...it doesn't get any...well, easier!!

Oven Cajun Ribs

1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless country-style ribs
3 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup barbecue sauce

Wash ribs and pat dry. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a shallow baking pan with foil.

Combine Cajun seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder. Rub mixture all over the ribs. 

Arrange ribs on the foil. Cover with another piece of foil and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until very tender. Uncover and brush with barbecue sauce; bake uncovered for about 15 minutes longer, or broil for about 5 minutes.

Here's all you need.

Combine the cajun seasoning, 
the garlic powder and the onion powder.

Rub the seasoning mixture all over the ribs. 
Place the ribs on a foil lined pan. 
Cover and bake.

After an hour or so, remove the top foil 
and brush some BBQ sauce over the ribs. 
Cook an additional 15 minutes.

Broil on high the last 5 minutes 
to caramelize the BBQ sauce. Serve and enjoy!
