Cover bottom of saucepan with Cisco oil and fry ribs until dark brown. Remove from pan. Using the same oil, cook onions, bell pepper, garlic, celery, parsley and tomatoes until brown and tender.
Add fried ribs and cover with water. Cook for about 2-1/2 hours on medium heat, stirring often. Let simmer until ready for rice. Stir in cooked rice and add fresh green onions. You may remove bones from meat before adding rice and onion tops.
