6-8 meaty country-style pork ribs (about 2.5- 3 pounds)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, chopped finely
1 celery rib, chopped finely
3 garlic cloves, minced
1.5 cups of ketchup
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup fresh squeeze orange juice
1.5 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 tablespoons Worcestershire
1 tablespoon smoked paprika (mild or hot, you chose)
2 tablespoons honey
1.5 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 cups water
1) Place ribs in a large pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil, skimming the surface. Cover and simmer on low 2 hours, or until ribs are fork-tender.
2) Meanwhile, heat oil, in your cauldron, over medium heat. Add onions, celery and garlic and stir about 5 minutes. Add spices and stir another minute. Then add all remaining ingredients, mix well and simmer on low heat, uncovered about 25-30 minutes until sauce thickens, stirring regularly with the wooden end of your broom stick.
3) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
4) Remove cooked pork ribs from the water and arrange in a baking dish. Coat well with sauce and bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes per side.
