    Scoutie's Note:

    These fantastic ribs are slow roasted in the oven so we can have delicious ribs anytime of the year! The rub is wonderful and the ribs are tender yet have a crisp finish with a balsamic glaze. This is adapted from Bruce Aidells's Complete Book of Pork Cookbook. You may need more of the balsamic vinegar, use your judgement. Cooking time does not include the rub setting time. I think they are much better when you let them set overnight. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

    1. 1
      In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, rosemary, kosher salt, black pepper, sage, thyme, paprika, crushed red pepper, coriander and allspice. Rub the spice paste all over the spareribs and let stand at room temperature for 2 hours or refrigerate overnight.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 325°. Arrange the ribs on a large, rimmed baking sheet or roasting pan, meaty side up. Roast the ribs for 2 hours, or until tender.
    3. 3
      Preheat the broiler. Brush the meaty side of the ribs with the balsamic vinegar and broil 6 inches from the heat until browned, about 2 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, then cut between the ribs and serve.

      I brushed "old" balsamic vinegar on after the ribs were slow roasted for 2 hours,then after 1/2 hour I brushed with a ketchup baste and slow roasted another 1/2 hour. I did not broil. I did not want it crispy since it would not do in this family. I need it completely tender. I followed the recipe for all of the spices. There wasn't one rib left! I did use more than 3 t blsps of balsamic vinegar. I also changed baking pans after 2 hours. I did not want any of the meat to stick in the pan with overcooked rub fell to the bottom. That tends to make the ribs a little smoky & burnt taste. Good recipe! I used dried spices.

      I wanted a non BBQ recipe and this one didnthe trick. I cut the slab down into three large pieces tonfit my pan. I probably could have cooked them for a shorter time, but they still came out very nice and tasty. I didn't have fresh herbs so I cut the amount in half for dry herbs and it worked perfectly.
