This is a delicious combination of flavors, and the pork ribs go especially well with sweet potatoes or rice. Add green beans or steamed broccoli for a delicious, satisfying everyday family dinner.
Boneless country-style ribs are a good alternative to fattier, less meaty ribs, and they aren't as messy.
- 2 pounds boneless country-style ribs
- 1 tablespoon ground allspice
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried leaf thyme, crumbled
- 3 to 4 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
- 1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 cups beef broth
- Wash ribs and cut lengthwise into smaller portions, if desired.
- In a plate, combine allspice, ginger, pepper, salt, thyme, and 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar. Mix to combine well.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or saute pan over medium heat.
- Dredge the pork pieces in the spice mixture; place in hot oil in a single layer. Cook the ribs, turning frequently until browned on all sides.
- Add the chopped onion to the pan and cook for about 4 minutes longer. Add the beef broth and 1 to 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, as desired for flavor. Gently boil for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until liquids are reduced by about 1/4 to 1/2. Cover and cook for 30 to 45 minutes longer, until pork is tender.
