Country-style ribs:

  • 3 pounds bone-in country-style pork ribs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil divided
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup dark beer
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 bay leaves

Parmesan Corn Grits:

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup corn grits
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


For the ribs:

  • Heat two tablespoons of oil in a large Dutch oven over medium high heat. Season ribs with salt and pepper.
  • Add ribs to the pan in batches and brown on all sides. Remove to a paper towel lined plate and set aside.
  • Add onions, carrots, celery, and garlic to the crock of a slow cooker. Season with salt and ground black pepper. Nestle pork ribs in the vegetable mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, combine tomato paste, vinegar, and red pepper flakes, beer and chicken broth. Pour mixture over the top of the pork ribs. Add the bay leaves.
  • Cook on high for 4 hours or low for six hours.

For the corn grits:

  • Combine liquid ingredients in a large saucepan. Season with salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a low boil over medium high heat.
  • Stir in the grits. Reduce heat to medium low. Cover and simmer, stirring often, until liquid is absorbed and grits are tender, about 30-45 minutes.
  • Remove pan from heat. Stir in butter and Parmesan cheese. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired.
