These Thai Glazed Ribs are oven baked, which makes them delicious any time of year. They're very easy to make, and oh so delicious. The simple marinade is what makes this recipe sing - a combination of Thai sauces, honey, and coconut milk plus a touch of chili. Bake the ribs right in the marinade, then broil for a few minutes right before serving - delicious glazed ribs couldn't be easier. Simple enough to make for everyday dinners, but impressive enough to serve guests. Makes a wonderful finger food too. ENJOY!
Prep Time: 12 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 17 minutes
- SERVES 2-4
- 2-3 lbs. pork ribs, chopped into 2-inch segments
- 2 spring onions, sliced
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 thumb-size pieces galangal OR ginger, grated
- 2 Tbsp. fish sauce
- 3 Tbsp. oyster sauce (I used Golden Dragon brand)
- 2 tsp. dark soy sauce (or substitute 2 Tbsp. regular soy sauce)
- 1/2 to 1 tsp. cayenne pepper (to taste)
- 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
- 1/3 cup liquid honey
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup coconut milk
- 1 Tbsp. lime juice
- Place all marinade ingredients together in a large casserole dish (you will also need a lid). Note: if making 3 lbs. ribs, add 1/3 cup coconut milk; if making 2 lbs. or less, use only 1/4 cup coconut milk. Stir well to dissolve the honey.
- Add the ribs to the marinade, stirring and turning them to coat. Cover and leave in the refrigerator to marinate at least 1 hour or more (up to 24 hours).
- When ready to cook, preheat oven to 325 degrees. Stir the ribs once more, then cover and set in the oven to bake (right in the marinade) for 1 hour.
- Remove ribs and switch oven to the "broil" setting. Cover a baking sheet with foil (turn the foil up at the edges to prevent juices from spilling). Then remove the cooked ribs from the casserole dish and place on the foil.
- Spoon 1/2 Tbsp. of the marinade from the casserole dish over each rib. Then set the baking sheet on the second-to-highest rung of your oven. Broil for 5 minutes, or until the ribs are sizzling, lightly browned, and shiny.
- Enjoy as is, or turn the ribs over and broil the other side as well.
- Serve right on the baking sheet, or transfer to a serving platter. Sprinkle the sliced green onion over the ribs and enjoy. This dish goes well with rice, but is equally delicious on its own as finger food.
