Pork Ribs with Sweet Potato and Side Salad

04 Sep

This is a great meal that everyone loves.


  • Country Style Pork Ribs (bone in)
  • Medium Sweet Potato
  • Salad
  • Salad Dressing (I use Bolthouse Dressings)

Heat oven to 350 degrees (bake not broil).  Place the ribs on a cookie sheet or broiler pan.  I use a cookie sheet that I line with tin foil – Easy clean up!  I season my ribs with only garlic salt.  You can modify this for what you like.

After seasoned, place ribs in the oven.  Turn the ribs periodically to ensure even cooking.  I usually cook mine about a half hour.  While the ribs are cooking wash your sweet potatoes and then place them in the microwave.  Leave the skin on.  Cook them for 8 minutes then flip and cook for another 8 minutes.  If they need a little longer then just turn again and cook for 5 minutes.   Cut open the sweet potato and remove from skin.  No butter added.  Plate with your ribs.

Add a side salad and your meal is done.  I use organic 50/50 mix salad and I LOVE Bolthouse dressings.  They have a good variety and it is only 45 calories per 2 Tbsp.  This dressing is found in the salad section of your store.  It is refrigerated in the cooler above the salad.


The serving for this meal is 4 oz of meat, 1 medium sweet potato, and 1 cup of salad with 2 tbsp of dressing.
