Oven Baked Country-Style Pork Ribs w/ Roasted Veggies

If you’re a meat lover and enjoy  finger-licking, fall-off-the-bone, tender, melt-in-your-mouth, flavor-filled ribs, then this is the recipe for you! It’s super easy to make and oh man, is it more then super delicious! I’m a picky meat eater, but now that I’m preggers I need the protein so I’m trying more new protein-filled and healthy recipes. Being allergic to tomatoes makes it harder to find  a good rib recipe but I finally found one! YAY! This recipe is sooo tasty and is actually bbq-ish flavored. The spice rub is easily adaptable to make it as spicy as you want. It’s also nice to just stick these in the oven and forget about it while you enjoy your weekend. Then before you know it dinner is ready! And after about an hour your whole house will smell amazing! Which is hard to handle when you’re hungry all the time already, but smelling this for hours before you get to eat it will drive you crazy! LOL The veggies make a yummy  side dish and look at that…….a nice, well-rounded, healthy meal! We even had enough for leftovers and they were just as good the next day! Next time I’ll make sure to double this! I’ve also been trying to add new things to my diet, and get hubby to eat them too, which for kinda picky eaters like us, its an adventure! I just keep telling myself its for the baby….but like most things, i guess certain foods are an acquired taste and I’m sure we’ll be loving them soon! LOL Give this one a try…. it’s not one you wanna miss out on! If you’re not a rib eater, you can use this rub on any meat and I’m sure its just as tasty!  Enjoy 🙂
