What to make with Country Style Ribs?

Would appreciate recipes and suggestions on what to make with country style ribs?

I'd prefer a blow braise to make sauce or something for pasta but open to other suggestions (no BBQ or anything spicy as it is for my kids).

I used to a great recipe for country style ribs from Lidia's Italy show but cannot seem to locate.

  1. Geeeeeez, to me, you hafta hafta offer potatoes with pork ribs...I'm assuming you are talking pork country ribs, right? Maybe it's my partial-German heritage that dictates such...but pork and potatoes go hand-in-hand for us! So, this could be potato salad...potatoes au gratin...or even mashed potatoes! Go for it!

    1. Definitely agree with Val on the potatoes. Potato salad is the first that came to mind.

      Or macaroni salad could be good, as well.

      1. When we get country style ribs from our CSA, I often make this recipe:

        It's very easy and good (but a bit soupier than the recipe appears).
        It's snowing here in MA, so this is sounding really good to me.

        1. For the fall I would do a warm German potato salad and a simple pot of pinto beans or a pan of baked beans...yum, I love Country Style Ribs!

          1. To me those ribs are crying out for a great cabbage dish in some form. Braised, buttered, baked.... anything, even slaw. Yes, and potatoes too.
