As soon as the snow melts, my boys and I start spending a lot more time outside in the back yard. And that means that I spend a lot more time cooking outside too. There’s nothing my family likes better than a meal cooked on the barbeque and so this weekend, we decided to welcome spring with our all-time favourite barbequed meal, Peanut-Sauced Ribs.
But ribs are messy, so first I headed to Walmart to pick up a box of Wet-Nap packettes. These handy little individually wrapped packages are an essential in our household because they’re so convenient. I keep them in the house for quick cleanups of sticky hands, in the car for those times when the boys can’t wash up properly and in my purse for all those other little emergencies a mom tends to encounter. And when we’re eating outside, Wet-Nap packettes are always on the table.
With the supplies I needed, I got busy cooking up the ribs. The secret to really good pork ribs is two-fold. First, splurging on back ribs, the meatiest variety of ribs available, is essential. Secondly, precooking the ribs ensures that they are deliciously tender and juicy. Just cut the ribs into two or three rib sections and boil them in a pot of water with about one tablespoon of salt added for 50-60 minutes before barbequing for the best ribs ever.
Barbequed Peanut-Sauced Ribs
- 2-3 lbs. pork back ribs cut into sections
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 2 tbsp. soy sauce
- 1 tbsp. curry powder
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1/3 cup frozen limeade concentrate thawed
Precook ribs in boiling water for 50-60 mins. Drain.
Meanwhile, combine all remaining ingredients until smooth. Sauce may need to be warmed slightly to liquify coconut oil.
Turn barbeque to medium-high heat.
Place ribs on grill and brush both sides with sauce.
Grill approximately 10 minutes, until sauce is bubbling and ribs are hot, turning halfway through cooking time.
Serve with additional sauce if desired.
This barbeque sauce is one of our family’s favourites. The peanut flavour is such a unique twist in a sauce and the blend of curry powder, garlic, lime and coconut is the perfect accompaniment for a final flavour that enhances the meat so well. But they’re as messy as they are delicious, especially since more sauce makes them even better as far as my boys are concerned. Thank goodness we had plenty of Wet-Nap packettes to help clean up after!
