Country Ribs and Kraut

The oven bag makes it easy to cook a recipe unattended, but the real bonus is the cleanup. In this case, most long-cooking meat dishes leave behind a baking dish that requires some serious soaking and scrubbing. With an oven bag, you simply open the bag and serve your food. Then once it's empty, just let the bag cool completely, and toss it for quick and easy clean up!
