Sticky spare ribs


Current cooking requirements: must be cooked in a lunchtime nap or during a 5 minute Peppa Pig episode. This is a bit of both.

Gratuitous cuddle shot. My phone’s run out of storage space for new photos.

Serves 2-3

4 pork spare ribs

3 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons tomato ketchup

2 tablespoons runny honey

2 garlic cloves, crushed

A little water

Steamed rice and edamame beans to serve

Marinate the ribs in the soy sauce, ketchup, honey and garlic for a couple of hours. Tip into an oven proof dish and add a table spoon or two of tap water to stop it burning and cook at 180 degrees (grid shelf on the lowest rungs of the Aga roasting oven) for an hour. Check the burning situation as you go along and add a bit more water if necessary.

We had ours with steamed rice and boiled edamame beans as I’ve discovered you can buy them frozen in bags like peas. Egg fried rice would be nice too. Get your own beans nice and salty at the table.
