Rack of Ribs

Made  times

"Try out this recipe for a baked rack of pork ribs with surprise ingredient, sauerkraut, which caramelizes beautifully. Easy and delicious. I get many raves when I make this for company. The ribs just about fall off the bone because they are so tender."

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Season the ribs with salt and pepper and place into a roasting pan that is slightly larger than the rack. In a medium bowl, stir together the sauerkraut, onion and dill; spread on top of the ribs and place around them in the roasting pan.
  3. Bake for 3 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until the rib meat easily pulls away from the bone.

This was somewhat of a pleasant surprise. I was looking for a way to help use up a bottle of dill weed, and ran across this. It sounded kind of odd, especially since I'm somewhat new to sauerkra...
