Pork Spareribs with Apple

3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
4 large cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon The Spicy Olive Wild Mushroom and Sage EVOO
4 lbs. pork spareribs
6 small apples halved
1 tablespoon The Spicy Olive Vermont Maple Balsamic Vinegar

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

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.

Roast for 60 minutes until the ribs and apples are golden and tender.

Preheat the broiler and place the pan 6-8 inches below the heat. Cook until all 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.

If you have the time, The Spicy Olives recommend that you marinade the pork spareribs overnight. Place in a casserole dish (or a ziploc bag) and cover with your favorite EVOO and Vinegar. For this recipe, we like the Wild Mushroom & Sage + Vermont Maple and Apple Balsamic Vinegar.
