With me working, I like either quick and easy dishes or dishes that cook long but without a lot of fuss. This dish requires a long braising time in the oven, but it is easy to cook even by remote. All you need is a 14 year old girl and a phone. While at work, I told Asi what to throw in the baking dish, cover it, put it in the oven to bake and by the time I got home from work, dinner was ready! This was served with black beans & rice (recipe later), pico de gallo(my version is here), and fried tortillas.

INGREDIENTS:
2 lbs. Country Style Ribs
1 10 oz. can of Enchilada Sauce
1 onion, chopped
Black Pepper

Put all the ingredients in an oven safe dish. Notice that I Asi did not add any salt. This is because the enchilada sauce is already seasoned. All it needed was some cracked black pepper before it was covered with foil and put in the oven to bake for about 1 1/2 hours (or until the meat is tender) at 350 degrees F.

    It was quite good, and the best part is that it was really easy. Especially for me :P

    we are now experiencing another peak of glory of parenthood -- when our children can already demonstrate even a bit of responsiblity and competence in doing tasks that adults do, with minimal supervision.
    gusto ko na rin magtrabaho outside the house!!!

    I guess the grass will always be greener on the other side, ha?

    Oh my goodness, this is making me hungry. I LOVE black beans and rice. So simple and so good. And with the pork and pico de gallo -- yum! Save me a plate!
