Stovetop Pork Ribs

You know how sometimes you just stumble across a good recipe and you can't wait to share it? That's what happened to me. I had a bunch of pork country style ribs that I bought on sale and was looking for a new way to use them. My friend recently introduced me to the iphone app and I quickly found this recipe for "Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs" using the "dinner spinner". I was hesitant to cook the ribs this way (on the stove top), but they were REALLY good, and smelled amazing as they cooked. I like that the recipe comes from a Brazilian family. And best of all, they were really easy!

Stovetop Pork Ribs 
adapted from

10 pork spareribs (I used country style boneless)
1/2 cup soy sauce
10 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 bay leaves
3 limes, 1 juiced and 2 cut into wedges for garnishing
10 sprigs fresh parsley (I had to guess on what that meant exactly. If you don't use fresh, use half the amount.)

Place the spareribs into a large pot, and fill with just enough water to cover (you really DON'T want to overdo the water, or it will take forever to cook off!). Add the soy sauce, crushed garlic, rosemary, oregano, bay leaves, juice of 1 lime and most of the parsley (save some for garnish at the end). Bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered over medium heat until the water has completely evaporated, (once it gets about halfway, it starts to go much faster so watch it more carefully) about 25 minutes (mine took nearly an hour and I thought I had been careful to not add too much water!).
When all of the water is gone, remove the bay leaves, and allow meat to brown, turning occasionally (best part!). Use a spatula to scrape up browned bits and softened garlic from the bottom of the pot, and toss them with the pork. The garlic will dissolve onto the meat. Remove the meat, and drain on paper towels. Season with black pepper (it will be plenty salty so just pepper will do!) and garnish with lime wedges and remaining parsley.

I served mine with Kat's Mexican Lime Rice and a green salad. I will definitely make these again soon! YUM!

My husband thinks we should try cilantro next time instead of the parsley. Sounds yummy, but I really liked the parsley.

  1. I am making these for dinner again tonight! Every time we have it (and even when we invite people over for dinner) there are never any leftovers. Kat's Mexican rice is also a big hit. This is one of our favorite meals.
    I chose to serve it tonight because I like that you don't have to marinate the meat at all so if you forgot to plan dinner ahead of time, this is still a great option!!
