Preparation

  1. Day before salt the ribs and pig hocks or knuckles with 2 tablespoons of coarse salt. Leave overnight in the refrigerator to marinate. Note: You can leave the pork in salt for 3 days before cooking. 
  2. When ready to cook saute the onions, garlic and bay leaf with olive oil in a heavy saucepan for about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the meats to the onion and brown on all sides.
  4. Turn crock pot on high. Begin layering; onion mix, the meats, carrots, ham.
  5. Add the cans of beans.
  6. Add the broth and tomato.
  7. Top with the cabbage.
  8. Be sure the lid covers the cabbage. Set the timer for 8 hours on high.
  9. After 4 hours stir gently and lower heat to low.
  10. After a few hours check the ribs and pork for doneness. The meat should fall off the bone but intact. The longer it cooks the more flavor it gets. You may need to cook the stew longer or it may be cooked depending on the heat of your crock pot.
  11. Serve with white rice.
