Honey,Garlic & Ginger Ribs
Member recipe by joblogs
Love BBQ pork ribs but you want something different? This recipe is for you
- What you'll need:
- 2 racks pork baby back ribs (approx. 2 lbs total)
- For the marinade:
- 4 tablespoons soya sauce
- 4 tablespoons liquid honey
- 6 cloves of garlic minced
- 2" piece of fresh ginger root grated
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
- Dipping Sauce (optional):
- juice of 4 limes
- 2 tablespoons soya sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 teaspoon white pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- In a small glass bowl or resealable glass jar mix all the marinade ingredients well. Let sit to allow the flavors to blend while you prepare the ribs in step 2
- With the back of a teaspoon begin lifting the membrane on the back of the ribs near a bone. When you get enough of the membrane (also called 'silverskin') pryed up from the back of the ribs grasp it with a paper towel and peel it off the ribs. This membrane should always be removed, if it's left on it can cause the ribs to curl when they're cooking and they'll also be a bit tougher to chew when left on.
- Cut the two rib racks in half so you've 4 pieces. Place the ribs meat side up (bone side down) in a glass dish. Evenly distribute the marinade over the top of the ribs and rub to completely cover all the pieces. Pierce the meat with a fork all over after you've spread on the marinade - this will help the flavor penetrate the meat. Cover the ribs and refrigerate overnight.
- Oil the grates of the BBQ and preheat to 400F - 450F. When the grill is ready place the ribs meat side down (bone side up) and close the lid. Let the ribs brown up and give them the charred grill marks - usually about 7 or 8 minutes should do. Flip the ribs over (bone side down) and close the lid. Reduce the temperature to 350F. Let the ribs cook for 30 - 40 minutes and check on them. The meat should be shrinking back from the bone 1/4" or so. Keep checking on the ribs, you don't want them overcooked or they'll dry out. Depending on the size of ribs you're using really determines how long to cook them. The bigger and meatier they are the longer they'll take.
- Remove the bbq pork ribs from the grill and place on a cutting board. Cut the ribs into individual pieces between the bones. Its easier if you do this bone side up so you can see where to cut.
- Serve this as is or with the bbq pork ribs dipping sauce described above.
