Smothered Pork Ribs
2 boneless pork ribs (3 oz each)
Salt and black pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic minced (1 tsp)
½ onion, sliced
½ green bell pepper, sliced
½ red bell pepper, sliced
1 small tomato, chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, minced
3 tbsp tomato paste
¼ cup red wine
½ cup chicken stock
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a heavy saute pan over medium high heat. Dry pork ribs with paper towels and sprinkle pork ribs with salt and pepper.
When oil is heated, brown ribs on all sides (3-4 minutes). Remove from the pan and set aside.
Add remaining tbsp olive oil to the pan. Add garlic, onion, peppers and tomatoes. Saute until softened, about 5 minutes.
Add tomato paste and saute for 1 minute. Add wine and scrape the bottom of the pan to deglaze. Add stock, stir and then move vegetables to create a well in the center of the pan. Turn heat down to medium.
