Another recipe found in my "The Complete Meat Cookbook" by Bruce Aidells and Denis Kelly. It is untried by me but sounds really good and I hope to try it soon. Times don't include the overnight marinating time.
- 1⁄4 cup asian fish sauce (nam pla or nuoc nam)
- 2 tablespoons asian peanut oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
- 2 stalks lemongrass, outer leaves removed (and tender center thinly sliced)
- 1⁄4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 4 1⁄2-5 lbs pork baby back ribs
- Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl and blend well. Put the ribs into a zip-lock bag or shallow dish and pour the marinade over the meat. Cover if necessary and refrigerate the meat overnight turning occasionally.
- About 30 minutes before cooking, remove the ribs from the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place a roasting pan half full of water in the bottom third of the oven.
- Remove the ribs from the marinade and reserve the marinade. Shake off the excess marinade and place the ribs on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Put the pan in the top third of the oven and roast for 1 - 1 1/2 hours, basting the ribs from time to time with the reserved marinade. The ribs are done when they begin to pull away from the bone and the bone tips are exposed. The internal temperature of the thickest part should be 155 to 165 degrees F. Towards the end of the cooking, you could then add them to the grill to get a caramelized grill marks/crust(what I will do when I make these yummy sounding ribs), but be sure to move them often so as not to let them burn from the sugar in the sauce/marinade.
OMG... I just wrote a review and it vanished. I will come back later to repost. Sorry!
