We've grilled them, done a sort of "oven BBQ" during the winter and this coming summer I plan on doing a classic smoked/jerk over a charcoal fire, but for now I'd like to share yet another way to do pork ribs. You're free to use the short ribs type you get at the Asian markets (ones sold for making dry garlic ribs), baby-back or your regular rack of pork ribs for this recipe. Using the classic Caribbean technique of 'stewing' to start, then we'll slowly braise these ribs until they tender and packed with rich Caribbean flavor.
Between spinach and beans it would be very difficult for me to decide which I adore more. The edge would probably go to beans simply because as a young fella on the islands I would help my parents grow different varieties in our kitchen garden. I hated pulling out the weeds, but I did enjoy harvesting them.. each bean picked off the bushes were like little prizes to my collection in the basket. Mom would normally make this dish for us whenever she would make stewed pork the evening before for dinner and had leftovers. If you'd like to make this dish vegetarian, simply leave out the stewed pork and for more flavor use coconut milk instead of the water mentioned in the ingredient list.
