Sweet and Sticky Thai Spiced Fig Pork Rib Chops

So its a sticky busy day, running between my office and meetings.

So i thought, why not a sticky recipe for you.

That correlation makes no sense (i know i’m nuts).

But since the heat is coming in full gallop in our part of the world i thought i would give you a nice little barbecue recipe. Something you can make from scratch without needing too much logistics.

I went to my butcher and asked him for nice long ribs. He came back and gave me a bag of chopped ribs. I didn’t have the heart to say anything, he looked as if he was having a rough day. So i adapted. This recipe is best if you a whole rib rack.

It’s really simple, grab your rack, season it with salt, pepper and spices, seal tightly in double aluminium, bake aat 350 for 2 1/2 to 3 hours (until nice and tender). Make a barbecue sauce (here i use all the cooking juices, mixed with lemon juice, 2 tbsp of fig jam, and about 1/2 cup of thai chilli sauce). Cover each rib piece in it. Start a wood fire in the middle of the grill. Place racks, around the grill (not directly on the fire), make sure there is A LOT of smoke. Cover and smoke for 15mins. Serve hot.

      That looks tasty! Can I replace it with beef? Pork is not that easily accessible here in Qatar.. :(

      Hope u could also have a written recipe, hard to follow all the steps and ingredients as to the amt needed, and tend to forget after a while. Its great to watch the video and salivate, but it wont work when I actually wanted to buy ingredients, spices and whatever and tried cooking it. So pls, WRITTEN RECIPE

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
