How to make it
- Preheat oven to 300º. Season ribs with a pinch of black pepper. In 8 qt. Dutch oven, heat olive oil. Brown ribs on all sides in batches. Transfer meat to a plate and pour off excess oil. Add vegetables and spices. Cook 3-4 minutes, scraping brown bits loose from the bottom of the pan. Return meat to pot and add broth and root beer. Bring to a simmer, cover tightly and place in oven. Bake until meat is almost falling off the bones (about 2 hours). Using a slotted spoon, transfer ribs to a platter. Skim off and discard as much fat as you can. Boil over medium-high heat until liquid is reduced by about half. Add meat back and spoon liquid over ribs so as to “glaze” them with the sauce. Simmer about 5 minutes and serve. Salt to taste at table.
- These would be great with my Chipotle “Sweet Potatoes” or a batch of well-seasoned Mashed Cauliflower. For those not on Atkins, it’s great with steamed rice.
