Italian-Style Pork Ribs

Tender Ribs

I was reluctant to share this Italian-style pork ribs recipe with anybody. Then I started to realize my selfishness and decided to part with it. This isn’t easy for me to do but I started thinking, why should I be the only one to enjoy these mouth watering ribs? Why should I be the only one sitting all alone wiping the sauce off my face. It’s just not right.

I’d give the ribs a great massage with herbs and spices. Bake them, broil them then eat them. I sadly remember growling at my family and friends if they came to close to me while I chewed off every delicious piece of meat from the bones. I feel guilty and ashamed at some of the things I’ve done.

Now it’s time to make amends and share this Italian-style pork ribs with the rest of the world. I hope this makes up for all the harm I may have caused.


  • 2 slabs of baby back pork ribs
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 4 stalks of celery chopped
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp of dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp of Accent meat tenderizer
  • 1 tsp of Hungarian paprika
  • 2 cups of beef broth
  • Your favorite B.B.Q. sauce


  • In a small bowl mix all the herbs and spices together.
  • Generously rub the spices on both sides of the ribs. The ribs will thank you for it.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place the ribs in a large roasting pan.
  • Sprinkle the celery and onions all over the ribs.
  • Pour beef broth around the ribs.
  • Cover and bake for 50 minutes.
  • Place the ribs on a large cookie sheet and brush both sides with your favorite B.B.Q. sauce.
  • Place under broiler for around ten minutes on both sides being careful not to burn.

    Cut the ribs in half to make 4 servings or keep them whole for 2 people or cut each rib off and serve for apps or invite me over and I’ll eat both of them.
