Instructions
Pork Rib Roast
  1. Preheat oven to 475℉. Pat roast dry with a paper towel and season generously on all sides with salt and pepper. In a small bowl whisk together remaining ingredients until smooth and rub evenly onto the roast. Place roast on a large baking tray or shallow roasting pan fat side up. Cook for 15 minutes in preheated oven then reduce temperature to 350℉. Continue to roast for 90-120 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 145℉. The meat will continue to rise about 10℉ as it rests.
  2. Remove roast from oven and cover loosely with foil. Allow to rest for a minimum of 20 minutes before carving. For larger appetites, you can carve the roast into chops between the bones and serve. Alternatively, you can carve off the bones from the center loin, allowing you to slice the loin to your desired thickness. Cut the ribs between the bones and serve along side.
Cranberry Apple Sauce
  1. Heat oil in a small saucepan and sauté shallots for 1-2 minutes until starting to soften. Add cranberries, apple, 1/2 cup water, white wine, brown sugar, rosemary and ginger. Allow to simmer gently, stirring occasionally until the cranberries are soft and the apples are tender. This will take about 20 minutes and most of the excess moisture will be evaporated.
  2. Stir in jellied cranberry, cinnamon and salt, allowing the jellied cranberry to melt into the sauce. Adjust consistency with a tablespoon or two of water if necessary. The sauce can be made ahead and warmed gently for serving. Makes 1 3/4 cups of sauce.

Instructions
Beef Skewers
  1. If using wooden skewers, soak according to package directions. Lay flank steak flat and cut into 1/4" slices across the grain. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together remaining ingredients. Add sliced beef and toss to completely coat each piece. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
  3. Preheat grill to medium high. Thread beef slices onto skewers. Spray grills with non stick spray if desired to prevent beef from over sticking to the grills.
  4. Grill beef skewers for approximately 7-8 minutes, turning once or twice to crisp up the edges. Serve with peanut sauce.
Peanut Sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and warm over medium heat. Do not boil or the peanut butter will separate. Garnish with additional chopped peanuts and serve with beef skewers.
