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!

How to Make Irresistible Pork Ribs

  1. Place ribs in a large stock pot, add salt and enough water to cover the ribs. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer boil for 30 minutes.
    Remove from heat and drain
  2. In a roasting pan, add karo syrup, cider vinegar, water, EVOO, onion, garlic, ginger, cayenne, & fresh cracked pepper. Whisk together well. Add Ribs. Cover and refrigerate at least two hours, turning ribs in marinade every half hour.
