Braised Boneless Pork Ribs


3 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs
3 tablespoons oil, divided
2 onions, chopped
4 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
2 1/2 cups chicken stock


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Pat the ribs dry and season with salt and pepper.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat and brown the ribs on all sides, working in batches if needed.

Remove the ribs and set aside. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the Pan and reduce the heat to medium.

Add the onions, carrots, celery, salt, and pepper and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, to remove the raw flavor, about 3 minutes.

Deglaze  the pan with the vinegar, and then add the and bay leaves.

Add the ribs back to the pan and add enough stock to reach halfway up the sides of the ribs.

Bring the pan to a simmer, cover, and place in the oven.

Braise until the meat is tender, about 1 1/2 hours.

During the last half hour, uncover to allow the liquid to reduce and the pork to brown.
