If you love BBQ ribs you are going to love this BBQ pork ribs with tamarind glaze. It is everything you want in a rib, it is sticky, sweet, spicy – it’s finger licking good, that is what it is.
I know it has not been a great summer so far! but I am positive that it will happened.
Not that the rainy summer will stop Mr M from cooking on the BBQ.
We BBQ in any weather in our house, as you can see!
I know we really need to get a proper cover over the BBQ but for now a bike cover and old cupboard doors will do just fine.
We (royal we here, I am not allow to touch the BBQ) were hot smoking salmon on Christmas eve and roasting beef on the BBQ on Christmas day. Of course our first BBQ of the year is always on New Years Day. Not easy looking for cooking coal in the middle of winter.
So when we have planned to stay home for our 2 weeks summer holiday and not travel. BBQ’ing a lot of food was one of the things we were looking forward to and nothing was gong to stop us.
We both always takes turn preparing for our BBQ meals. Mainly because we like different things. I love my Thai herbs and spice BBQ, serves with sticky rice and Somtum slaws. MrM loves Texas type BBQ with dry rubs and BBQ sauce. Best of both world really.
I was very happy with this tamarin and herbs ribs recipe. Not often you try a new recipe and it is perfect the first time, but this one was.
Like most great BBQ recipes there are 3 stages to making this ribs.
The marinade, the BBQ’ing and the glaze. There are all equally important to me.
It would be great if you can marinade the ribs over night to ensure that the flavour get to know each other well. You can even make the glaze the night before too. Then all you have to do on the day is BBQ and relax.
We, sorry Mr M cook this ribs slow and low (indirect heat) on the BBQ took around 4-5 hours and a another half an hour glazing. You can also cook it in the oven, I would say 150c on a rack, covered for 2-3 hours basting well at the end.
It was amazingly soft and fall of the bone. The flavour was sweet and sour from the tamarind glaze.
This tamarind glaze ribs will be your new favourite ribs to have on your BBQ.
Here’s to a great summer.
