Chicharrones con Limón (Lime-Marinated Rendered Pork Ribs)

Ingredients

  • 2 lb pork ribs, cut into individual ribs
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons pork lard
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 limes, cut into wedges, for garnish

Directions

  1. Season the ribs with salt and lime juice and marinade for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat the lard in a Dutch oven or rondeau over high heat. Fry the ribs until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes.
  3. Slowly add the water, cover, and cook over medium-high heat for about 30 minutes.
  4. Remove the lid once most of the water has evaporated. Continue cooking to let the pork ribs render in their own fat. Cook over medium-high heat until the ribs are crispy and golden, 30 to 45 minutes.
  5. Arrange the ribs on a serving platter with the limes and serve hot.
