Apple Cider Braised Ribs

I had leftover apple cider that needed a good home and the brisket had turned out so well using it that it was time to try some ribs.  They came out with a delicious apple flavor and so tender they were falling off the bones.  Plus after you brown them, all you do is put them in a dutch oven with the sauce and walk away and let them simmer for 8 hours.







Apple Cider Braised Ribs

2.5# pork back ribs
extra virgin olive oil 
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
3 cups apple cider


Brown the ribs with heated olive oil in the dutch oven in small batches.  Once all done, place in dutch oven and add in the apple cider, honey and lemon juice.  Cover and let simmer for 8 hours.
