Recipe: James Beard's Salt and Pepper SpareribsAnna Mowry
December 03, 2013
With so much of our energy channeled toward others during the holiday season—making lists for others, full-contact shopping for others, hosting parties for others—it's no surprise that it can feel impossible to make a simple dinner for ourselves. When we need a break from the 'tis-better-to-give-than-to-receive mantra, we turn to James Beard's recipe for salt and pepper spareribs. It's as elemental as it sounds: grab some spareribs, rain salt and pepper over them, throw them in the oven, and put your feet up.
Your can also find this recipe and more of James Beard's classic dishes in The Essential James Beard Cookbook, a collection of dishes culled from twelve of his iconic books, including Hors d'Oeuvre and Canapés, Menus for Entertaining, Beard on Pasta, and The Armchair James Beard.
