Sparerib Casserole Recipe

This is an old Southern recipe my mother passed on to me many, many years ago. It's especially good for a Saturday night supper.

  • 4 to 5 pounds pork spareribs, cut into individual ribs
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided

  • 6 cups cubed potatoes
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
