Ingredients : RIBS

3 slabs baby back ribs
8 sprigs fresh rosemary
8 branches fresh thyme
4 handfulls fresh sage leaves
salt
freshly ground pepper

Ingredients: beans

1 C dried cannellini beans, soaked overnight in abundant lukewarm water
1 C dried borlotti or cranberry beans, soaked overnight
in abundant lukewarm water
2 T extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 T Italian pancetta, finely chopped
2 t garlic, minced
1 C tomato sauce
1 t each fresh rosemary, sage and thyme
1 1/2 C chicken broth, hot

Method: ribs

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • If your butcher has not already done so, pull away the thin opaque membrane that covers the underside of the ribs.
  • Sprinkle both sides of each slab with salt and a generous grinding of black pepper.
  • Place a wire rack inside a large baking or roasting pan. Fill the pan with 1 1/2 inches of water.
  • Lay half of the herbs on the rack, then place the ribs, meaty side up, on top. Cover with remaining herbs.
  • Tent the pan with aluminum foil so that no steam will escape during cooking and place ribs in oven for about 2 hours. They are ready when the meat is tender and moist.
  • Let the meat cool for 5 minutes then cut into 2 or 3 rib sections.

    Method: beans

  • Rinse the beans well - do not mix them as they will cook separately.
  • Place cannellini in a medium saucepan, cover, and simmer gently until soft and creamy (40 - 50 minutes). Salt to taste.
  • Repeat with borlotti or cranberry beans. Simmer until fully cooked.
  • Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan ove low heat. Add onion, pancetta and garlic. Sauté until onion and garlic are golden.
  • Stir in tomato sauce. When it begins to bubble, add chopped herbs, the cooked beans, and the chicken broth. Simmer mixture together.
  • Ladle the beans onto individual plates, place a portion of ribs on top, and serve.
