marinated pork ribs with Asian flavours

This is the second recipe in our Family Favourites Series - marinated pork ribs with Asian flavours.  Just by using staples from the pantry you can make this quick go to family dinner packed with flavour.


600g free range pork spare ribs
1 dessertspoon Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoon Peanut or Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 dessertspoon honey
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon freshly grated turmeric or 1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric
2 small chillies finely chopped
Sesame seeds and garlic flowers/chopped coriander for garnish


Combine all the above ingredients in a glass/ceramic non reactive dish.
Add spare ribs in a single layer, using a fork, prick each rib and then turn over and repeat.
Marinate in the fridge for 3 hours if you have the time, turning every so often.  Even 30 minutes will do.

Preheat griddle pan and once hot place spare ribs in a single layer.
Cook for 5 minutes on one side, turn and cook for a further 5- 8 minutes or until cooked through.
(If you want to crunch up the skin just use tongs to hold the skin side directly on the pan)

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and garlic flowers or chopped coriander as garnish.

Serve with nutty brown rice for a delicious family favourite.

Hint: I store my sesame seeds in a small glass bottle in the freezer, no waste and always on hand.

Hope this becomes one of your family favourites.
