Pork Ribs Recipe

A piece of juicy meat that cares not for social norms. Let us grab a chunk of roast pork rib for ourselves and enjoy life as it is! Tasty and beautiful!

There are few things in the world that brings West and East so much together than pork ribs. It seems like -greasy as it looks- no one minds gnawing meltingly roasted meat off from pieces of bones, even if that doesn’t look at all ladylike.

It seems like societies tends to close their eyes on strictly chiseled rules when their survival is at stake. Perhaps, this is how we come to close to the Pope, considering allowing marriage for priests in the Catholic Church.

Allowing priests to marry is only recently a big deal in the Roman Catholic Church as other Christian religions like the protestants aren’t doing such a big fuss about it.  Nor did Roman Catholics at some point of their history.

Priest were never encouraged to marry but if some were married before ordination then they stayed that way after becoming priests. This made a little loophole at the time when no digital copy of marriage certificates was available to check when somebody was actually married.

Of course, when things got out, reprisals were made but that didn’t stop life going on nor babies to be born. During the centuries many priests who weren’t so keen on publicly declaring their affection just went by the practice of concubinage which is practically having a long-term girlfriend by today’s standards.

We as humans survived through the years because of our strong social skills by nature, we strongly desire to be part of a society and be accepted by it. It comes from our hunter, gatherers past when the tribe turned its back on one of its members that person perished in the wilderness.

Individuals who aren’t part of a community must show deep understanding of the community’s values before being accepted and protected by it. Once a person is considered as a part of the tribe, he still must positively contribute to it ensuring its survival.

In exchange the community will tolerate or even embrace his peculiarity and does not talk about his girlfriend or the pork ribs he ate during lent.

Because everyone understands that we are only humans and very few of us is capable to restrain themselves when ribs are served straight from the oven. It’s pointless to resist.

Ribs can be such a diverse dish as many spices we have in our kitchen. In the Western cuisine it seems like limited to BBQ ribs which is a bit disheartening but at the end no two BBQ sauce is the same.

Given that we make our sauce of course. We present here three options from a very basic one to a more elaborate one with taste-able differences but without clear winner of favorites from them.

During the meat preparation process, try to refrain ourselves from boiling the ribs except if we are planning to make soup out of the cooking water. No one wants to lose out on the flavors nor the nutrients that could come from such cut.

Braise the meat in the oven meaning put a lid on the tray in the oven. When its nice and tender take the lid off, turn on the grill and finish it off with a lovely juicy color that will leave no mouth dry nor desire unfulfilled.Pork-ribs-recipe-4-SunCakeMom
