From Food and Wine Magazine. Vadouvan is a French-style curry powder, with members of the allium family adding flavor. It is a mild curry. There is at least one recipe posted, and you can also get it online and from specialty shops. The ribs do release a fair amount of fat, so you want to be sure to use a pan with sides. The overnight marinating in the dry rub is not included in the prep time.


  1. Mix together the vadouvan, salt and sugar. Rub the spice mixture all over the ribs. Refrigerate, covered, for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 deg F.
  3. Roast the ribs for 2 1/2 hours, until browned and tender; transfer to carving board and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut into 1 or 2-rib portions and serve.
