Oriental Style Ribs


Ribs, wonderful ribs. I have to admit, this was my first time preparing ribs, as I am always hesitant to cook a new piece of meat. Who does not love  juicy, fall off the bone, finger lickin', flavorful ribs?! This is one of these "set it and forget it" recipe. The slow cook process really does some good to this piece of meat and will give all the results you're looking for in a rib.



Oriental Style Ribs
- 1 rack of pork ribs

Dry Rub
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 2 Tsp Garlic powder
- 1 Tsp Chili powder 
- Salt & Pepper

Sauce
- 1/2 Cup Barbecue Sauce
- 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
- 1 Tbsp Teriyaki Sauce
- Few squirts of Sriracha sauce for heat (optional)


How to make:
PREHEAT OVEN TO 300F DEGREES
1. You will see in the above picture, there is a very thin skin from under the rack that needs to be removed.
2. After this is done, place the rack on a piece of foil  inside of a baking sheet. You may rub liberally the dry rub over and under the rack. Close the foil pouch tightly to keep all the humidity and the juices inside with the ribs.  Place it in your preheated oven for 90 minutes.
3. After an hour and a half, remove the ribs from the oven and open the pouch of foil, being careful of the steam coming out. Mix the ingredients for the sauce all together and spread on the top of the ribs, keeping a Tbsp of the sauce for a final glaze.
4. Leaving the foil open, place the ribs back inside the 300F oven for another 30 minutes. Take the rips out of the oven and apply the reserved sauce to give them a nice shine. Cut rack in portions of 3-4 ribs and serve


Recipe for an Asian flavored salad 
- 2 Cups Soy Germs
- 1 Cup Broccoli florets in small pieces
- 1/2 Bell Pepper (whichever color) Finely diced
- 1/2 cup roasted sliced almonds
Dressing; Same amounts of soy sauce and sesame oil (about 2 Tbsp of each) whisked together

This light crunchy and fresh salad pairs very well with the tenderness of the ribs.
This time I also made a potato and rutabaga mash to add more consistency to the meal. Hope you enjoyed this post!

Eat well and till next time!
