It always sounds scary to bake a big piece of meat – although I don’t mind eating big piece of meat.
I am not a fan of slicing meat, neither do I have the patience to marinate the meat for more than 24 hours. Not to mention having the oven on for 2 hours in the hot hot hot summer.
However, I feel to the need to show my talent in cooking meat in front of my friends.
So here it comes: My Very First , Oven Roasted, Pork Ribs (that receive 5 stars from my friends)
To my surprise, it wasn’t that much labor involved. I searched several receipts online , and come up with my own version , given the limited ingredients I can find in my pantry.
So there are two steps:
Step one: Dry Ingredients:
Salt, Pepper, Chipolet (mild) sauce, brown sugar and Chili powder, . The ratio is about 1: 1: 1: 2: 3
Wrap the rib in a aluminum foil , put in the fridge over night.
Step two: wet ingredients:
Soy sauce, honey, cooking rice wine, (about 1: 1: 1), makes about 1/2 cup.
pour the web ingredients in the tightly wrapped pork rib, and marinate for another 4 hours. Don’t skip the honey /brown sugar – they are very important to generate a nice caramelization on the rib.
Ready to Roast!! I used this lock&lock glass pot, and cover it with another piece of aluminum foil.
Since it will be in the oven for 2 hours, it is very important to keep the moist : first, wrap the rib tightly, second, cover the pot. As you can see, after two hours, there is still some liquid inside the wrap:
Be patient for 2 hours. And it is done:
