This is one of those family dinners that is simple, and stick to the ribs. What more could you want? All you need is ham, onion, potatoes and chicken broth. If desired you can add some frozen vegetables to it like green peas or green beans. You are only limited by your imagination.

This meal goes great by itself with some crusty bread or with rice (or your favorite grain like, let’ say, couscous). With a hearty red wine like a chianti or cabernet, or a white, if that’s your preferences, you’ve got yourself a feast.
