For the mojo

12 tbsps extra-virgin or virgin olive oil
10 large cloves fresh garlic, room temperature, peeled, chopped, sliced
40g yellow onion, peeled, very finely minced
80ml fresh squeezed orange juice, preferable bitter orange
240ml fresh squeezed lime juice
160ml water
15g finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/2 tsp dried oregano
3/4 tsp garlic powder
2 tsps ground cumin

For the ribs

3 country-style ribs, boneless
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
Mojo sauce:
1) In skillet over medium-high heat, add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once heated, add the garlic and onion, cook until pale golden brown, 2-3 minutes only, stirring constantly.

2) Stir in the citrus juices, 160ml water, 2 tablespoons olive oil and all dry ingredients. Bring sauce mixture to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

1) Preheat oven to 160C/Gas 3.

2) Season the ribs with salt and pepper. Add enough oil to a hot large skillet to just cover. Add ribs and sear, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove to a large shallow roasting pan.

3) Add mojo sauce over the country style ribs and turn to cover. Seal tightly with foil and roast for 3 hours. Baste ribs each hour with mojo sauce. Take foil off for the last 30 minutes of cooking, or until tender.
