Chinese Barbecue ribs sauce recipe

Welcome to my date night falling off the bone Chinese spare ribs recipe. A chance to enjoy delicious spare ribs on a budget!Welcome to my date night falling off the bone Chinese spare ribs recipe.

I recently read an article on a food blog, well more specifically a barbeque food blog and it was a big heated debate about what falling off the bone in the rib department actually meant.

Well there were some serious grillers insisting that you should never serve ribs “falling off the bone” as this actually meant that they were burnt and had lost their flavour. Yet there were others that were saying the complete opposite and that it has its nicest flavour when it is slow cooked and is falling off the bone.

Personally, I am all for the latter, and couldn’t imagine my ribs any other way than falling off the bone and hate it when ribs are not slow cooked.

I remember having ribs at an outdoor barbeque restaurant in February and because they had just been cooked on the grill and they hadn’t been marinated or slow cooked they were so chewy and gave me toothache. I was really not impressed and didn’t even finish the one I was eating.

It was tough and it felt like something cheap (which of course ribs are) but it didn’t have the lovely texture that slow cooked ribs have or a taste that I liked.

So I think it is safe to say that if I am going to eat ribs then they have to be slow cooked. I did my first slow cooked ribs recipe in the blog just after I started it last year and they are one of our most popular posts. But and it’s a BIG BUT this recipe is very much my favourite for a romantic night in for two. Serve it with some fresh bread and a movie and you have the perfect evening.
