Spicy, Chinese-style BBQ pork ribs

spicy bbq spare ribsI’m a big fan of BBQ pork ribs, and there are many ways to make them taste delicious.

This recipe combines some of my favourite flavours and these ribs are sweet, sour, spicy, tangy and delicious. I actually based it around a Gordon Ramsay recipe I saw on Channel 4 ages ago. Though I’ve changed it a little, it is more or less his, so let me say “thanks Gordon!” for the inspiration.

Personally I could eat all of these ribs in one sitting (especially with a nice few beers to wash them down) but if you’re less of a rib-fiend than I am, this recipe will serve 4 people.

Instructions
  1. Heat a large oven dish over a high-heat and add the oil, covering the pan evenly
  2. add the ribs, sealing and browning them on all sides and slightly caramelising them
  3. drizzle the honey over the ribs and turn them again
  4. add the garlic, chopped chilli, ginger, rosemary and spring onions, and pour over the Shaoxing rice wine
  5. boil for a minute or two, then turn the heat down to medium, and pour over the chicken stock
  6. add the soy sauce, rice vinegar, Chinese five spice, chilli flakes and star anise. Season with a little ground black pepper, and let the mix simmer for around 20 - 30 minutes, reducing the liquid by about a third, turning your ribs and spooning the liquid over them from time to time
  7. heat your oven to 180 C (gas mark 4)
  8. place the ribs in the preheated oven and cook for around 1 hour, turning half way through
  9. once cooked, serve the ribs, pouring the cooking sauce over them. Tip - you may need to reduce the cooking sauce a little further before serving
