Greek Style Ribs

Greek Style Ribs

1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/8 cup unpasteurized honey
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
1 Tbsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. ground pepper

2 racks of pork ribs (4-5 lbs.)

After purchasing the ribs, you will have to remove the thin translucent membrane. To do this, I use a fork or spoon, place it under the membrane to loosen it enough, and gently pull off. This step is important because this membrane is difficult to chew, but it will also hinder the marinade from getting into the meat. After removing the membrane, separate the ribs by cutting each between the bones.

In a large glass or plastic container (with a lid) mix the marinade ingredients (olive oil to pepper) together. Place the ribs in the container, place the lid, and shake to coat all the ribs. Place in the refrigerator for 1-3 hours.

To cook, preheat your oven to 375'C. Place the ribs on a baking sheet (covered with parchment paper for less mess). Bake for 1.5 hours.

Serve with your favourite steamed vegetable and rice (if you eat grains).
