Oy! I'm just as stumped as you.
Where my lovely Jewish grandmother learned to cooked such wonderful pork ribs is beyond me. All I know is that this dish was one of my favourite meals as a kid, especially when it was served with a big bowl of Caesar salad.
As the holidays approached and winter set in, I found myself thinking back to precisely these dishes, the comfort food of my youth, so I called my grandmother and asked her for the recipes. Then I waited. And waited. Finally, with "The Great Turkey Burden" of Christmas now history, I could turn my focus to the ribs I'd been craving for weeks.
