Fall off the bone ribs with deep savory flavors.


Units Scale
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds pork ribs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 4 cups low sodium beef broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried or fresh thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 teaspoons worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a large pan over high heat, add 2 tablespoons of oil. Season the ribs with salt and pepper on both sides. When the pan is hot, add ribs and cook both sides until they are golden brown.
  3. In a roasting pan add the onions, garlic, beef broth, water, soy sauce, granulated sugar, thyme, bay leaves and worcestershire sauce. Add ribs to the roasting pan, cover and put in the oven. Cook for about 3 hours, making sure to check on them every half an hour or so, turning them over to ensure they cook evenly. The ribs are done when they fall off the bone.
  4. Serve on a plate and drizzle bottom of the pan juice over them.


Save these ribs in a storage container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
