Spicy Pork Ribs
Christopher Hartfield cuts prep time by marinating ribs in harissa, a Tunisian spice paste. Though North African in origin, it imparts a warm heat that works with the rest of the menu. Prep and Cook Time: 1 hour, plus at least 8 hours marinating time. Notes: Harissa is available at gourmet markets, Middle Eastern markets, and Whole Foods stores. Hartfield recommends marinating the ribs two days ahead, grilling them the day before, and then reheating them on your portable grill at the party.
