Raining cats and dogs plus a very hard pork meat for dinner.

It's raining cats and dogs here at the moment. We can hear the wind blows very hard. Looks like there is a typhoon somewhere near us. But I'm not sure. I had my afternoon nap while waiting for my Internet connection to get back. Thank God, I was able to reschedule my interview because of this. And it's still raining though. I just had my dinner and didn't finish what I eat because the food is very hard to chew. I was craving for a Filipino dish called "Adobo" for dinner, but Mother represents herself to cook. In the end, it's awful because the pork ribs are still very hard not tender. I remind her earlier to have it boil first so that the meat will tender, but looks like she did it in her own way. Which is she did not. She lied to me. She is indeed a good liar. Now, I am still hungry and I have to endure this. Have you tried eating not so tender pork meat?

I don't think you need to boil ribs before you cook them, but they do need to be in the oven (or on the grill) for several hours. Some types of pork, including ribs, require low and slow heat for a long time in order to make them tender. Otherwise they are just gross.

@JustBhem No you don't need to boil them. In fact, boiling them removes a lot of the flavor from the meat. Boiling them just speeds up the cooking time. If you don't boil them, you just need to cook them for a longer amount of time at low heat.
