**********************************
What I did with what I had

Fried the ribs, set aside after browning
Used the fat to fry the onions and garlic until transluscent and aromatic
Added tomatoes, tossed added little more oil
Cinnamon and Bay leaves…tossed…chirp chirp chirp
Carrots… purr (sprinkled with parsley)
wine—swoooosh
Ribs back in… chirrrp chirrrp
water…swashssssss….. quiet!
put in pressure cooker… 30 min
switch off…until the steam died off
opened, started heat again…
gravy boiled down to yummy levels

Rice (jasmine rice or any asian rice) boiled with peas…. butter added.
Gravy added with the ribs….
Thats what I call a good Saturday lunch… ready for a nap 🙂

idea: maybe add nuts next time, almonds or walnuts
