Tuscan Style Pork Ribs

Tuscan Style Pork Ribs

While Tuscany might not be the first place that comes to mind when thinking BBQ, the herbs from that area certainly should be! This blend of aromatic herbs makes cooking ‘naked-style’ spare ribs anything but naked. Pork ribs vary from region to region in the United States. Some are smothered in a sweet barbecue sauce, while others are smothered in a mustard based sauce. But with these au naturel spareribs, rubbed with this fragrant and intoxicating herb blend, you definitely won’t miss or need barbeque sauce.  The perfect way to ease into the BBQ season!
