5 pounds lean country style pork spare ribs
3 tablespoons polyunsaturated oil
1 large onion, diced
4 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, minced
2 bay leaves
1 clove garlic, diced
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 large cans diced tomatoes with juice
1/2 cup black olives, pitted
2 teaspoons dried basil

Trim all visible fat from the ribs and cut the ribs apart. Heat the oil in a sauté pan and brown the ribs slowly until dark and crusty and then remove from the pan.

Pour off all the fat in the pan and stir in the onion and parsley till the onion is translucent. Add the garlic, bay leaves, cloves, cinnamon, allspice and black pepper. Return the meat to the pan and stir until fully coated. Add the wine and deglaze the pan. Add the diced tomatoes. Stir in the olives, cover and simmer over low heat for one hour. Add the basil, salt and pepper, cover and cook for 45 minutes. Skim any remaining fat from the sauce before serving.
