More ribs! This time they’re honey garlic, with a side of Asian greens

22 Jan

I  made ribs again for dinner, however experimented with a different cooking technique. Instead of a dry rub,  I baked them  completely plain in about 1 inch of water for an hour and a half, then drained the water and  added the honey-garlic sauce for the last 35 minutes. These were  pork side ribs from Field Gate Organics, which I highly recommend. They turned out incredibly fall-off-the-bone tender and moist! I think I’ll prepare my ribs this way from now on. Why mess with perfection?

Honey Garlic Pork Side Ribs


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • black pepper
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic

Whisk together and set aside. Pour over ribs after they have been baking for 1.5 hours in the oven, covered, at 350. Continue to bake for another 30-45 minutes, basting occasionally.

For the greens I steamed broccoli, kale and Swiss chard and dressed them with a mixture of:

  •  fresh lime (juice from 1/2 lime)
  • 1 clove garlic (crushed)
  • sesame oil
  •  tamari
  •  black pepper
  •  cayenne
  •  and a dash of honey.

Prepared whilst  listening to Jennifer Castle (also highly recommended). Another perfect Sunday.
