I'm hanging out at my parents' house this monrth and they are doing a pantry week (where they don't buy any food and attempt to run down the food in our over-crowded freezer and pantry). I've got some great meals planned with the food that we've got (we happen to have everything for tarte tatin), but one this I'm struggling that we have half a meal's worth of country style ribs and half a meal's worth of baby back ribs.
Is there a way that I could cook them both into one meal? I'm hoping to avoid BBQ flavors (we do that a lot). I was thinking of cutting the baby back ribs into 2 or 3 ribs pieces and maybe roasting them with some kind of flavoring (I have a half a jar of thai peanut sauce and some onion marmalade, and plenty of stuff to put together some kind of marinade...)? Would they cook in about the same time? Also, my mom doesn't like fruit and meat together, so no orange or cranberries allowed (darn!).
Let me know if you have any ideas. I realize that it might be impossible.
