Beer-Basted Boar Ribs
Tender pork ribs covered in a lovely sauce cooked live on our Twitch channel.
- 1 kg. pork ribs
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 shallots, diced
- 2 teaspoons curry paste
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1 bottle of beer (less hoppier)
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
We went to the butcher’s store to buy a nice pair of ribs, we couldn’t really find red curry paste at that time but at least we managed to get some extra ingredients to prepare the Worcestershire sauce.
First, we started out heating the oven to prepare the ribs, we covered them abundantly in salt and pepper as our book suggested and put them in a tinfoil covered pan to roast till we prepare the sauce.
We had to make the rib sauce in 2 parts since we didn’t really have Worchestershire sauce and we had to prepare it on our own, we combined all the usual ingredients: soy sauce, brown sugar, onion, garlic, black pepper cinnamon, vinegar etc.
After we finished with the Worchester, we started adding all the ingredients along with it in a pan so that the garlic and onion could soften, meanwhile the ribs were steaming perfectly in the oven and time was right to bathe them in our sauce. Now, ribs take some time to cook( around 3 hrs at a steady temperature (150-200°C) and the book suggested to take them out every half an hour or so and pour a bit of the sauce over them.
At around 3hrs we pulled the ribs out and they were looking pretty tasty as you might tell in the picture, the sauce had a nice beery and sort of spicy taste which made it blend perfectly with the meat.
Yey or nay:
All in all, this was a success for the both of us since we had never cooked ribs before and thought it looked a bit unnerving we managed to follow the recipe and to a great end result.
Score 9 of 10:
We give this 9 just because it was our first time making ribs and they tasted better than expected but we have the feeling we might have missed something in the cooking process.
