Country Style Pork Ribs

Famous Dave's Recipe

Serves 4

3 lbs country style pork ribs
2 tablespoons Famous Dave’s Rib Rub
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup onion cut in 1" square
1/2 cup onion, 1/2" dice
1/2 cup celery, 1/2" dice
1 whole pablano pepper diced in 1/2" chunks
3 cloves garlic
10 ounces beer
1 cup water
1 cup Famous Dave’s Hot & Sassy BBQ Sauce

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Get a pan large enough to hold all the ribs in a single flat layer. and heat over a medium flame. Add oil, and sear country ribs on both sides, about 2 minutes, remove meat and set aside. Add vegetables and garlic and sweat until vegetables are translucent, about 3 minutes.

Deglaze pan with beer and scrape up the browned bits. Add Famous Dave’s Hot and Sassy BBQ sauce and water and stir. Add ribs in one layer. Bring to a simmer, cover and put into the oven for about 45-50 minutes, until meat is very tender.

Remove ribs from sauce. Strain sauce from vegetables. Reserve vegetables, season. Degrease sauce. Serve ribs topped with sauce and some vegetables on the side. Goes great with a steaming hot mound of corn grits. Or a good vinegary cole slaw.

Notes:  Rub ribs with Famous Dave’s Rib Rub and let sit for a couple hours, or overnight.
