Some months ago, we were craving for ribs, and usually if we do them, there is only one place in the city we go. Boogies BBQ. THE best people working there, and it is the place where you are ashamed to eat your BBQ beef with the cutlery. It is truly a real home feeling soul food place.
Inspired by Boogies we decided to make this vietnamese spare ribs recipe at home. Yes, we do not have a smoker, but some things are simply better eating outside. And for these occasions we do have restaurant, right?
I hope you already tried our beef ribs with bbq marinate? They are soooo good. So this time we decided to make some pork ribs with a twist. Vietnamese spareribs with a super tasty caramelised asian inspired BBQ sauce.
Fresh Pork Ribs are the key!
The crucial part for this recipe is good ribs from your local butcher.
Don’t buy already marinated ribs as that marinade is full of sugar. Making your own marinade is quick and easy.
These Vietnamese pork spareribs were our low-carb dinner, can you believe it? Therefore, we decided to prepare a Vietnamese version of coleslaw, which was the most perfect match ever. Crunchy and fresh carrots and red cabbage.
