POP Nutrition: Tender Oven Roasted Pork Ribs With Sweet Potatoes, Zucchini, and Squash

Hi guys,

I have been craving meet – beef, pork, turkey, chicken. The other day when walking by an Organic Market (it comes over on Saturdays) I asked about a young chicken in hopes of making rotisserie at home but they were out but they did have pork ribs. I went for it. I came home and marinated them for 48 hr. And then decided to bake in the oven. They came out so tender, so juicy, and the meat fell right of the bone. Hmm…hmmm
