I will admit we are not a huge Pork family. But every once in awhile my husband gets an itch for it. This recipe is adapted from Emeril's Pork Ribs. Of course I never stick to the original recipe. Either I'm missing something or there's an allergen ingredient.
This was a huge hit the first time I made it, and I never have left overs! The final product is a nice tender meat that pulls easily from the bone. My daughter calls it her sweet and sour ribs. It does take some time to prepare, but well worth the full belly's at the dinner table!
Great for a Sunday Supper or pregame treat!
