Updated December 11, 2009

Ingredients

  • 3 slices bacon
  • 6 country-style pork ribs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 5 cups coleslaw mix (from 16-oz bag)
  • 1 cup chopped onion (1 large)
  • 1 can (8 oz) sauerkraut, drained
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1 cup julienne (matchstick-cut) carrots
  • 3/4 cup apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seed

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove from skillet, and crumble into small bowl. Season ribs with salt and pepper. In same skillet, cook ribs in bacon drippings over high heat 3 to 4 minutes, turning once, until brown. Place in baking dish, reserving fat in skillet.
  • 2
    In same skillet, place coleslaw mix and onion; cook over medium heat about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and wilted. Remove from heat. Add bacon, sauerkraut, apple, carrots, apple cider and caraway seed; mix well. Spoon into baking dish on top of pork.
  • 3
    Cover with foil. Bake 30 to 45 minutes or until pork is no longer pink and meat thermometer inserted in center reads 160°F.

  • Ribs can be bone-in or boneless. One boneless rib usually supplies enough meat for one serving.
  • If you prefer, you can slice your own cabbage instead of using the bag of coleslaw mix. Slice the cabbage very finely. Look for matchstick-cut carrots in the produce section of the grocery store.
