Easy and tasty, these Honey Glazed Baby Back Ribs are a must-try!
Mr. Rasa Malaysia enjoys baby back ribs as one of his favorite foods.
Although he enjoys a wide variety of ribs, he particularly likes Chinese-style ribs and BBQ ribs from the US.
When we go out to eat, he doesn’t have a lot of say because I choose the restaurants. But when he does, his response is always the same: ribs.
He’s taken my pals and me to restaurants we’ve never heard of before, where we feasted on ribs from a hole in the wall.
One of his favorite foods is barbecued baby back ribs, and fortunately for us, our friend Slap Yo’ Daddy is a top-notch pitmaster in the United States and would frequently bring us some of his award-winning ribs.
He was served these honey-glazed baby back ribs.
Despite not being a significant fan of ribs, I was pleasantly surprised by this dish’s sticky, gooey, and addictive goodness.
The Food & Wine magazine recipe for honey-glazed baby back ribs is used here.
I’m a big fan of sambal oelek or chili-garlic sauce as a flavor enhancer.
Mr. Rasa Malaysia, on the other hand, thoroughly enjoyed the dish prepared especially for him.
If you’re a fan of Chinese/Asian-style ribs, this is the recipe for you!
