What do you do when you no longer have a kitchen? Barbecue pork ribs of course!
This is week three of our remodel, and needless to say, blogging about food has become an interesting challenge. I have to admit it’s starting to wear me out – but as with all things that take time, the end result will be worth it.
Last night grilling was the only option, so I traipsed out to the garage where the refrigerator currently resides and took out what was left of the produce – 2 large sweet potatoes. I found a few really great looking pork ribs to go with my sweet potatoes and trudged back to the non-existent kitchen to put it all together.
Naturally I had to make my own barbecue sauce, or this would make for a very boring blog post, so I scrounged up a few sauce ingredients and headed off to the grill.
My pork ribs had a delightful caramelized color and sticky sweetness. They were perfect with the sweet potato planks. Not a bad effort for someone without a kitchen.
- 1 cup catsup
- ½ cup low sugar orange marmalade
- 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 clove garlic, mashed
- 1 pinch red pepper
- 1 pound boneless pork ribs
- Oil grill plates and preheat the grill to medium.
- Combine catsup, orange marmalade, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, honey, garlic and red pepper in a small bowl.
- Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper.
- Place pork ribs on the grill and grill 4 - 5 minutes per side, the remove to indirect heat and slather with the barbecue sauce.
- Cook another 5 - 8 minutes depending on the size of your ribs until they are no longer pink inside.
What’s good for me in this dish?
Pork trimmed of visible fat can be considered a lean meat. Specifically boneless pork chops, or tenderloin. Pork is a good source of Vitamin C, Niacin, Phosphorus and Zinc, and a very good source of Protein, Vitamin B12, Iron and Selenium. Pork is higher in cholesterol.
