BBQ Ribs ( II )

The way of making this ribs is similar to this except I change the marinate to some fruity Asian flavor.

Ingredients :

3 pounds ribs
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
4 tbsp of tomato ketchup
1" fresh ginger peeled and grated
1 tbsp of minced garlic
2 tsp. lemon zest grated
Salt and pepper to taste

Some heavy duty aluminium foil - big enough to wrap the ribs

1. Trim excess fat from back ribs. Combine all other ingredients. Mix well and pour over ribs. Cover and marinate in refrigerator overnight or at least for 3 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Remove ribs from marinade. Reserve the marinate. Put the ribs on the aluminium foil and wrap it up with double foil.
3. Put the ribs on a baking tray and bake in the oven for at least one an a half hour or until its tender.
4. Put the reserve marinate in a heavy saucepan. Bring the marinate to boil and cook over low fire until it reduce to a glaze-like consistency (about 1/3 cups).
5. Reduce oven heat to 325ºF. Open the foil and brush ribs with glaze, continue to bake (open) until golden brown.
6. Serve with corn or some salad.

I tried to cook baby back ribs before but never turned out as good as yours... No kungfu lah...
I never use the cooked marinate to glaze the ribs... Now I know.. Thanks for the tips.

I enjoy this kind of fruit glaze on the BBQ ribs! I can have more ribs this way since the glaze somehow has the effect of reducing the "greasy" feel :P

it looks good. Can I use other meat for this? Chicken wings? Actually chicken wings sounds good with your marinate :)

Cat, hope you will try this out soon :)

Tigerfish, the orange juice and lemon peel cut back some of the greasiness of this dish.

Kate, I just try something different and it turn out pretty good :)

Beachlover, yea you better check with Elliot first before you do this :)

Lee, this is really tender and juice since is wrap in foil and bake in its own juice for a long time :)

Yatie, you can use this marinate for any meat but cooking time will be diffrent :)

Zue, thank you.

Chiff0nade, everyone have their own taste bud. Some like it some not.

I tried making beef ribs a few times coz i love it! Unfortunately usually the meat not so tender because i tend to over cook. lol.

Farina, I wrap the meat up in foil as this way it will cook faster and retain all the juice.
