What's for Dinner?
Hungry? Me too.. Lets bake some Country Style Pork..
I have a package of country style spareribs, about 2 1/2 lbs. that I picked up at our local butcher last week. I have thawed them & they are ready to marinate....
Always use fresh meat... It should be nice and red and firm.. Get your butcher to cut you a nice portion. Bone in or out... ( mine have bones, I think they have more flavor) pat dry the ribs and drop into a lightly oiled Hot skillet.. You will want to sear the meat to seal in all the juices. Brown nicely all sides and season with salt & pepper and garlic cloves as much as you like I used 6 small cloves. * I also sprinkled a few flakes of chili pepper on top.... See those bits you want those to brown with the meat.
Now remove the browned ribs from the pan and set aside . Next you will deglaze the pan...
Pour about 3/4- 1 cup of white wine or chicken stock into the same pan you browned the ribs & garlic in ... You can see which I prefer.. (Is that picture blurry? Honest...I didn't even have a taste).... right into browned bits and stir to loosen those goodies from the pan bottom..leaving on stove over med heat. Reduce heat low and Stir in 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, 1 Tablespoon dijon mustard, and about 2 Tablespoon ketchup, 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar, 2 Tablespoons soy sauce, and 1 Tablespoon worstershire sauce..stir all together and pour over the browned ribs.. taste for flavor balance ... more Salt? Pepper?
I lay sliced canned pineapple and the juice over browned meat then grate fresh ginger over the ribs and cover for 30 minutes to marinade. Then flip them over let them sit another 30 minutes covered.
Then transfer back into the original pan you browned them in and bake in a preheated 350 oven covered for about 1 1/2 -2 hours. They will glaze nicely and turn a beautiful color of brown.. falling of those bones.. I think you will like the tangy yet sweet flavors ...You can serve these with steamed rice and a green salad and of course a chilled glass of that white wine...
