Salt ribs very well and press salt into the meat.

Brown ribs on all sides. Don't crowd the pan; cook in batches if need be otherwise the ribs will steam and not brown. Take ribs out of skillet once browned.

Clean and de-stem mushrooms. I save the stems for soup, etc.
Place vegetables into the same skillet that browned the ribs. Sauté veggies.
