  • 8 country-style pork ribs
  • 1/2 cup bone broth
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 generous pinch sugar
  • juice and zest of one lime
  • juice and zest of one orange
  • juice and zest of one lemon
  • honey
  • sliced scallions


  • Heat a cast iron pan. Arrange ribs in the pan in a single layer. Over high heat, brown both sides.
  • Turn the heat to low. Pour in the broth. Sprinkle in the ginger, salt (how much depends on how bland or salty the broth is), pepper and sugar.
  • Add the zest of all three fruits.
  • Squeeze the juices directly over the pork ribs.
  • Cover the pan tightly and let the pork ribs braise for 45 minutes. By that time, the meat should be tender and most of the liquid should have been absorbed.
  • Drizzle honey over the pork ribs to give them a nice sheen and to balance the flavor.
  • Garnish with scallions.
  • Serve the three-citrus country-style pork ribs in the cast iron pan.
