Everyone loves Bbq Pork Ribs, sweet, smokey, sticky and full of flavour. The process of making ribs is just as important as the barbecue sauce you use.
Some Bbq Pork Ribs recipes use dry rubs, some marinate for hours, some slow cook, some bake and others grill. So many methods, so little time! Time is something we are all short of. My recipe boils the ribs in a marinade then grills on the barbecue. This speeds up the cooking process, still allowing the ribs to be tender.
I think there are 2 nations that are famous for their bbq ribs. South Africa and the USA. No one else comes close to how delicious their rib recipes are. South Africans love their Braai (bbq) and have developed their own bbq sauces, different from the American style. Sometimes I make a South African Monkey Gland Bbq Sauce which I serve with my ribs. It’s worth checking out.
Americans are famous for their smokey barbecue sauces, rib cook offs and secret recipes. Sometimes I make my own barbecue sauce, but my favourite is Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce. They make many varieties of flavours, from sweet to spicy. They do the hard work in making a great bbq sauce, so I don’t have to! The perfect accompaniment to bbq ribs.
Instead of boiling the ribs in plain water, it’s better to cook the ribs in chicken stock and onions, so the flavour permeates through the meat. I sauté the onions and garlic, add crushed coriander seeds, and enough chicken stock to cover the ribs. Remember pork is a white meat, which is why chicken stock works well. It’s an easy step that adds extra flavour.
Grilled Bbq Pork Ribs are an easy recipe to make, with great wow factor. Use a great barbecue sauce, and you can’t go wrong. Finger licking goodness. Bon Appetit! Приятного аппетита!
