Irresistibly Tasty Ribs on hungryhouse

I’m a man of simple pleasures me. Forget your fancy food and trips to the Opera, I love nothing more than slouching on the sofa, binge watching my favourite show and feasting on a truly gorgeous rack of ribs. The third series of House of Cards launches this Saturday, and as fans of the show will know Frank Underwood likes nothing more than tucking into a full rack of BBQ ribs before launching another nefarious scheme.

So I thought it was the perfect time to share with you my love of ribs, showing you that fans of sticky, succulent ribs have got plenty to sink their teeth into on hungryhouse.

La Kalbi (Korean Beef Ribs)

Combining thick honey sauce with chilli peppers, oyster sauce and a fair amount of garlic, these ribs strike just the right balance between being spicy and sweet. I don’t know about you, but succulent pork marinated in a sticky, sweet and fiery sauce sounds like heaven.

Kaburga Dolmasi (Turkish Lamb Ribs)

While Beef and Pork ribs tend to steal the show, Lamb ribs are just as rich and juicy, and they punch far above their weight in fulsome flavours.

Proving that ribs needn’t just be a delicious side dish, Kaburga ribs serve up pieces of tender lamb breast stuffed with rice, minced onion and seasonings. These ribs are then sewn up again, before being marinated and barbecued to perfection.

Definitely not small fry (via)

Kin Do (or ‘King Do’) ribs are coated in hoisin or soy sauce, honey, and a dry sherry or rice wine, before being seasoned with lashings of garlic and a dash of sugar. To cap it all off, the ribs are then deep fried to ensure that all of the bursting flavours are locked in. For an extra touch, dip them in chilli sauce before getting stuck in!

BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Howdy! Nothing beats enjoying your favourite show while feasting on a delicious rack of classic American bbq ribs.

Irresistible (via)

Real traditional bbq ribs have got to be three things; sticky, messy, and spicy. Cayenne peppers and ground cumin bring the heat, whilst the barbeque sauce is a lovingly sticky mix of mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and black peppers. I’d buy that for a dollar.
