  4. Transfer ribs to a side plate, add the stock to the pot, and deglaze the sediments at the bottom.
  5. Return the ribs to the pot, cover with lid, transfer to oven, and cook for 1 hour.
  6. Use oven mitts to remove the pot from the oven, discard vegetables, strain half the liquid, add to a small saucepan placed over medium-high heat, add jerk sauce bring to a boil, lower to simmer for 3 minutes, and keep warm.
