The cooking time required for the dried beans will depend on their age. Continue cooking and adding water if they haven't softened after four hours. You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.

You'll need

2 tbsp olive oil 800 gm pork ribs, cut into 3-rib portions 1 onion, thinly sliced 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 800 gm canned chopped tomatoes 200 gm (1 cup) haricot or other white beans, soaked overnight in cold water, drained 80 ml (1/3 cup) apple cider vinegar 55 gm (¼ cup) firmly packed brown sugar 2 tbsp smoked paprika 2 tbsp blackstrap molasses (see note) 1 tbsp Dijon mustard 1 tsp each ground chilli, ground cloves, ground fennel, ground cinnamon To serve: crusty white bread

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 160C. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Season ribs to taste, rubbing seasoning into meat. Add to frying pan in batches and cook, turning once, until golden (2-3 minutes each side), remove from heat, set aside.
  • 02
