Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut ribs into serving size portions and season to taste. Heat a large roasting pan or Dutch oven over medium high heat and sear ribs in oil to brown.
Combine remaining ingredients and toss with browned ribs in roasting pan. Cover pan well and roast at 350 degrees until tender, test by tugging on a rib – about 1.5 – 2 hours.
