Stuffed Baby Back Ribs

I don’t know if this is a “Canadian”dish or not, but I posted it years ago on the Cooking Forum and the only other person that was familiar with it was a fellow Canadian.  This is a dish my mom used to make.

This is so good.  The sage dressing both flavours and is flavoured by the pork.  One of my favourite fall dinners.

Stuffed Baby Back Ribs
Traditional bread stuffing (Onions, celery, sage, parsley, chicken
broth, salt, pepper…..)
Good with a cornbread stuffing too.

2 racks of ribs or one cut in half
1 garlic clove
olive oil
extra garlic cloves

Rub ribs with garlic and season with salt and pepper.

Spread stuffing over one of the racks and top with the second one.  Tie together using butcher twine or silicone ties.   Place in shallow roasting pan, rub or drizzle with a little olive oil, toss in a few
peeled and cracked garlic cloves, cover and roast in a 375°F oven until tender.  Remove cover for the last 30 minutes to allow the meat to brown.

Use the pan drippings to make a light sauce/gravy.

  8. Ann,I love those pink ties…..where on earth did you find them?Beautiful meal, as always!

  9. Thank you all for dropping by for a visit.Monique, maybe it is an Ontario dish. I have had these ties for a while now. They really do come in handy. They are called Food Loops. are other brands and some are more reasonably priced than others. I'm sure one brand is probably as good as the next. Just do a search for Silicone Food Ties.Thanks again for your comments.Ann

    My English-Canadian grandmother began making these in the 50s, and now I'm making them for my daughter. The best!!

    Approximately how long until 'tender' – do you uncover after they are tender for 30 minutes? I would greatly appreciate some timelines to follow as I am horrible at getting everything on the table at the same time!

    This is a common dish in the the Kitchener/Waterloo area of Ontario. Often served in the Pennsylvania dutch style restaurents in the area that serve contry style meals. One that comes to mind is Angie\”s Kitchen in St. Agatha. MMMMMMMM!
