So yesterday I managed to create a new baked baby back rib recipe for my family to enjoy after a few weeks of eating out with much less healthy food. The ribs were served with these beautiful, tender, and tasty roasted garlic organic baby squash and sweet peppers. On an earlier post on my Facebook page, I alluded to carrot sticky rice with a hint of coconut fragrance, so that was incorporated as a lovely side dish.
My girls and husband thought these finger lickin' baby back ribs were so yummy. They're tender, moist and the meat falls right off the bone. The ribs were brushed with the thickened sauce - which is a mixture of the sauce from baked ribs mixed with corn starch - and left to broil for a few minutes until it's cooked on and bubbly. The recipe couldn't be any simpler. Give it a go!
RECIPE: Sườn Nướng
6-7 lb Pork Loin Backribs
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Honey Barbecue Sauce
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons Fish Sauce
2 tablespoons Lime Juice
1 tablespoon Onion Powder
1/2 tablespoon Black Pepper
1 whole Garlic
2 tablespoons Corn Starch
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F
Peel off tough membrane that covers the bony side of the ribs. Rinse and cut ribs into smaller portions of about 4 or 6 ribs. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except the corn starch. Mix well.
Lay two layers of foil on top of ribs and roll and crimp edges tightly, edges facing up to seal.
Place on a baking sheet or it's best in a shallow roasting pan and bake for 2 1/2 hours or until meat is starting to shrink away from the ends of the bone. Remove from oven. Transfer ribs onto a broiler pan. Pour the sauce into a sauce pan.
In a small bowl, add corn starch and some sauce to mix the corn starch. Set aside.
Bring the sauce pan to a boil. Reduce heat and add corn starch mixture. Mix well. The sauce should be thickened.
Cut ribs into serving sized portions of 2 or 3 ribs. Arrange on broiler pan, bony side up. Brush on sauce.
Broil for 3-4 minutes until sauce is cooked on and bubbly. Turn ribs over. Brush sauce on the other side and broil for another 3-4 minutes.
Instead of broiling, you can grill them in your back yard.
Serve ribs with your favorite side dishes . . . and maybe a beer?
