I created this blog to connect with others who have a similar infatuation with everything spicy.
Below you will find recipes, tips on growing chilis, and whatever else I feel like writing about.

Spicy Honey Garlic Ribs

What you will need:
  • some pork ribs from the freezer
  • 2 teabags
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/4-1/2 cup butter
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cup honey
  • 1-2 tbsp chili flakes
  • 1 - 2 tbsp soy sauce (I didn't have any on hand so I threw in a couple tablespoons of some VH Honey Garlic cooking sauce)
  • I also added a tablespoon of VH Spicy Thai Chili Sauce and a finely chopped Super Chili pepper just because I like it really spicy - these can be left out if you don't want it as hot, or don't have them on hand

Step One:

  • Fill a pot half way with water and bring to a boil
  • Add a couple teabags - I used orange pekoe, but have used an apple cinnamon tea before and it turns out delicious!!
  • Add the frozen ribs to the hot water/tea and let it simmer until the ribs are no longer frozen together (5-10 mins)

Step Two:
  • Put the ribs in a roasting pan with a few tablespoons of water - just enough to cover the bottom of the pan
  • Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper
  • Cover and bake at 250F for 1 1/2 - 2 hours

Step Three: The Sauce!
  • Melt the butter in the bottom of a saucepan
  • Add the garlic to the butter and let it cook for a couple minutes
  • Add the honey, chili flakes and soy sauce stirring constantly
  • Add more chili flakes or honey until you get a balance of sweet/spicy to your liking
  • Remove from heat

Step Four:
  • Pour out most of the liquid in the pan with the ribs
  • Drizzle a few tablespoons of sauce on the ribs and put them back in the oven for another 1-2 hours.

Step Five: Done!
  • Add some more sauce to the ribs and serve!

This is them halfway

This is them done.
The bones are just falling out.
