Oven Roasted Ribs


I am very fortunate.  I am married to a man who enjoys our culinary adventures and he also likes to cook.  He reads through the blogs regularly and it is not uncommon for him to find a recipe that he must try.  That is what happened a few weeks ago when he read Kate's blog, Serendipity.  The Kitchen Gnome loves ribs.  He loves being challenged to cook "the best ribs."

He gathered his list of ingredients and headed for the store.


Oven Roasted Ribs

Adapted from The Kitchen Diaries
Serves 4 

6 Tablespoons thick honey
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon Thai fish sauce
1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried chili flakes
4 whole star anise
3 pounds meaty pork ribs


  • Mix the honey, sauces, chili flakes and star anise in a bowl and pour over the ribs.
  • Marinate them in this sauce for at least an hour and preferably overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 180 C / 350 F
  • Cook ribs, turning them about every 15 minutes for 60-75 minutes. They should be tender but won’t be falling off the bone.
  • Try not to growl when eating them.
Kate was right about these ribs.  They are so tender.  I love ribs that are done in the oven!  I made German Potato Salad to go with them.  It was a great combination!

  2. My husband is at home in the kitchen too! It's so nice. Although he doesn't read blogs (yet), I'm printing this up for him. The star anise and Thai fish sauce sound delicious in the sauce.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  5. It does sound like an excellent combination. I see your husband has your inquisitive nature, or vise versa.

  11. Lucky you to have someone that shares your love of cooking! These ribs look awesome. But then, I am a rib LOVER. We had some good ones at an office "Tailgating" party that the caterers at the hospital I work at did. They were so tender..and seeing yours only makes me crave them more. Luckily there was so much leftover that everyone was sent home with extras so we have some for the Superbowl munchies today.

  12. Hey Kate..was wondering if you have a source online for the T&R sauce you sent me when I won your Pay it Forward contest? We loved the hamburger sauce and its all gone now. I can't find it online though. Thanks!

  15. Oh, Kate, what a treat to come back home and find this post! We've been traveling and didn't have reliable internet connections. I couldn't wait to get back and see this! Yours look as good as they tasted at our house!

    The potato salad was a great idea. I'm stealing it next time I make these.
