Five-spice Pork Ribs with Crunchy Asian Noodle Salad

Posted: May 22, 2011 in Pork, Salads

I have made this recipe a couple of times now. Whilst it can be cooked on the bbq I think it’s best done in the oven. But that’s because I like crispy pork ribs and the oven seems to do a better job of it. It has a beautiful flavour to it and one that is best eaten with your hands (as my son showed me). This is another easy meal, and makes use of the rest of the wombok cabbage I used in the sweet and spicy chicken fried rice. I can’t stand wastage, so like to plan meals that best use up all ingredients.

Our baby seems to crave Asian food, because that’s the cuisine my posts seem to concentrate on. Or maybe it’s the fact that I won’t be able to eat garlic, ginger, spice etc once he/she is born. I will be travelling to Spain in June, and booking into a spanish cooking class, so promise to bring you back a bit of espana in the form of recipes! A break from the Asian 🙂
