Pork Spareribs with Apple


  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 4 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon The Spicy Olive's Wild Mushroom and Sage Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 pounds pork spareribs
  • 6 small apples, halved
  • 1 tablespoon The Spicy Olive's Vermont Maple Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Combine the rosemary, garlic, and oil in a small bowl.  Rub mixture all over the ribs and place them in a dish to marinate for several hours or overnight if possible.

Step 2: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.  Line a large baking dish with foil.  Season the ribs well on all sides with salt and pepper, then place them in one layer on the prepared dish.  Tuck apples around the ribs.  Brush the surfaces of the apples with a little more oil.  Drizzle with Vermont Maple Balsamic Vinegar.

Step 3: Roast until the ribs and apples are golden and tender, about 60 minutes.

Step 4: Preheat the broiler and place the pan 6-8 inches below the heat source.  Cook until everything is golden brown and crisp, about 15 minutes per side.  Remove the apples when they are tender.  When the spareribs are cooked, serve them on heated plates with the apples.

Notes: If you have time, The Spicy Olive recommends that you marinate the pork spareribs overnight.  Place them in a casserole dish, or a Ziploc bag, and cover with your favorite extra virgin olive oil and vinegar.  For this recipe, we like the Wild Mushroom & Sage EVOO combined with the Vermont Maple and Apple Balsamic Vinegars.
