Applesauce-Sauerkraut Spareribs Recipe

All seasons are beautiful here, but I especially like fall so I can serve more hearty fare like this. Served with mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, these ribs soothe the soul.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 2 hours YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 to 3-1/2 pounds country-style pork ribs
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 can (32 ounces) sauerkraut
  • 2 cups applesauce
  • 2 cups thinly sliced onion
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup apple juice

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown ribs in oil. Arrange ribs in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Rinse and squeeze sauerkraut; layer the sauerkraut, applesauce and onion over ribs. Combine broth and apple juice; pour over all.
  • 2. Cover and bake at 350° for 1-3/4 hours; uncover and bake 15 minutes longer or until onion begins to brown and meat is tender. Yield: 6 servings.
