Pork Rib End Roast

I was invited to be a Sunday Dinner guest in my own home.  Doesn’t get much better than that.  So while I’m writing about this dinner, this Braised Rib End Pork Roast was a combined effort and oh so delicious.

To begin, assemble your favorite dry rub.  For us that consisted of fairly equal amounts of dried thyme, sage, oregano, yellow mustard, garlic powder, Mrs. Dash Garlic Herb seasoning, salt & pepper.

Apply the rub to all sides of the roast, pressing it in as you go.  Then brown the roast in a dutch oven with canola oil until it is deep brown on all six sides.  Once browned remove the roast.  Add a generous amount of thickly sliced onions into the dutch oven and saute until just tender.  Then add 1 cup of dry red wine, stirring to deglaze the pan.  Next add several garlic cloves minced, 3-4 whole carrots, and 2 bay leaves.   Return the roast to the pan and add enough broth (chicken or beef works fine) to raise the liquid level to half way up the roast.

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.  Cover the dutch oven and start the braising process on the stove top, bringing the liquid to a gentle boil, then transfer to the oven.  The objective in braising is to maintain a slow burble throughout the cooking process.  You may need to adjust the oven temperature up or down at 30 – 45 minute intervals.  For a 3-4 lb. roast you should plan on 2 1/2 – 3 hours of total cooking time.  When the meat pulls away from the bone, remove it (and the carrots) and allow to rest 15 minutes before slicing.

Now for the really good part.  All that beautiful braising liquid is begging to become a wonderful rich sauce.  Return the dutch oven to the stove top and bring liquid to a boil.  Make a corn starch slurry using some of the braising liquid and 2 Tbl. of corn starch.  Whisk in the slurry mixture and continue to simmer until the sauce has reduced by about one third.  Season with salt and pepper.  Serve your Braised Rib End Pork Roast with your favorite mashed root vegetables and a generous ladle of the amazing sauce.  Oh how I love Braisings!!
