These slow-roasted American pork ribs are the perfect dish for those who love sweet and sticky ribs. Made with a combination of tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, whole grain mustard, honey, smoked paprika, and crushed garlic, the sauce is what makes these ribs truly special. The pork ribs are cooked without added fat, making them a healthier option, and are covered in the sauce mixture before being left to marinate overnight. Slowly roasted in the oven for an hour and a half, the ribs are then brushed with the reserved marinade and baked for an additional 20 minutes until they are perfectly browned. Serve these delicious ribs with a salad of lettuce, radicchio, red onion, and cherry tomatoes, and steamed corn on the cob, for a meal that's both satisfying and healthy.
