I am here to tell you that you don’t have to go to your bbq joint or local deli to have the best pork ribs because you can absolutely make them at home. And you don’t have to be a pro in the kitchen because your oven will do most of the work for you.
Rib meat can be fairly tough so the oven is the best for a slow and steady type of cooking that breaks down the meat so that it becomes tender. So you are sure to get juicy ribs with this recipe.
2kg Pork Belly Ribs
3 Tablespoons Reduced-salt Soy sauce
2 Tablespoons Sugar
3 Tablespoons Honey
3 Tablespoons Vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Garlic powder
1 teaspoon Onion powder
1. Preheat oven at 200 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together the soy sauce, sugar, vegetable oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic and onion powder.
2. Add the pork to the bowl and mix well to coat evenly. You can cover with a cling foil and let it sit in the fridge for about 1 hour so that the pork gets to soak up all the flavours.
3. After 1 hour, lay the ribs and some of the marinade sauce in a large, shallow roasting tin or tray. Cover with aluminium foil, reduce the oven heat to 150 degrees and cook for an hour. I cover the tray to ensure the pork remains moist and doesn’t dry up immediately.
4. Into the remaining marinade sauce, add honey. Remove the foil from the tray, drizzle evenly the remaining sauce and bake further for another hour at 200 degrees. Turning them a couple of times at intervals of 15 minutes just to ensure they cook evenly. Take them out the oven once they start getting sticky and most of the sauce has disappeared.
5. Serve warm with a side of chips(that’s what I had it with 😊)
