I thought working in the ER would give me more time to advance on my culinary skills. Ha. I wish. (For once in my life) I was wrong. Shift work is tiring. The random free time you have, you actually need to recover from the inhumane hours. So, sorry for that!
But, to return with a scrumptios bang, I present to you a recipe for BBQ ribs ala moi (inspired by Jamie Oliver). On my recent trip to the big apple, one must-have american dish I didn’t indulge in is ribs. Ok, hate to break it, I also didn’t have cheesecake….. Whaaaaat was going on in my head?? How could I miss out? Honestly, I don’t know what happened. Well, instead of waiting for my next trip, I decided to recreate possibly the best ribs I have ever had – if you are in NYC or there soon don’t miss out on Georgia’s Eastside BBQ! Next time I think I have to double the sauce.
(Oven) BBQ Baby Back Ribs
(There is no way to make delicious, bbq-sauce drenched, ribs look beautiful)
2 racks of ribs
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp runny honey
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 generous tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp Heinz hot chilli sauce
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp apple juice
- Before making your barbecue sauce, prepare the ribs by peeling the silver skin off the back of the ribs (this will guarantee the fall of the bone effect everyone looks for when eating ribs).
- Mix all of the sauce ingredients together until smooth.
- Generously brush the ribs all over with the BBQ-Sauce. For the best results let your ribs soak up the marinade over night.
- Wrap the ribs loosely, meat side down, in aluminium foil. Preheat the oven to 195°C, fan assisted. Place onto a baking tray and bake at 195°C for 30 minutes.
- Once your 30 minutes are up, turn the heat down to 150°C and continue to bake for 2 hours.
- Remove the foil, change your oven settings to grill, baste all sides with some more bbq sauce and finish off for about 10 minutes in the oven.
