Our new favourite way to enjoy pork ribs. So easy to make!
Braised Pork Ribs
2 TBSP olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2-3 lbs pork ribs
1-2 cups chicken stock
2 TBSP soy sauce
2 bay leaves
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 300F. Slice ribs into individual pieces and dry with the paper towels; season them with salt and pepper.
- Heat 1 TBSP olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions and cook until softened, for about 10 minutes. Remove to a plate.
- Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil over high heat. Add ribs in a single layer (cook in batches if necessary,) and cook until browned on all sides. When browned, add reserved onions, bay leaves and a cup of chicken stock. Chicken stock should not cover the ribs all the way – we are braising, not boiling them. If you feel there’s not enough stock, fell free to add more (I aim for about 1/4 inch of stock.) Bring to boil, cover and move the entire pot to the oven. Bake for 2-2.5 hours until the ribs are tender and falling apart. Enjoy!
