Spicy Spare Ribs Recipe Inspired by Gordon Ramsay

After drooling over most of the Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cookery Course, the Accidental Locavore decided it was time to take at least one of the recipes out for a test drive. First up (because spare ribs were on sale), his spicy spare ribs. This time, watching the show, I took notes. What follows is how I cooked the ribs, with some help from one of my HuffPost followers who had already tried them. See below for my notes on the recipe. It will serve 3-4 people and takes a little less than two hours from start to finish, half of that unattended.

Accidental Locavore Glazing Spare RibsMy verdict: These were good and could be great. I would definitely make them again with a couple of tweaks (see below). It’s an easy recipe, but does require some attention. My husband thought they were really good and had seconds! I served them with mashed potatoes and green beans.

Notes: The biggest change I would make would be to use country-style ribs instead of regular spare ribs. It needs a meatier rib than the ones I had. Luckily, Bob, my HuffPost follower, gave me a heads-up on lowering the oven temperature and removing the ribs before reducing the sauce. Otherwise they would have been really dried out and tough. Thanks Bob! I would have liked a little more sweetness in the sauce, but not being a big fan of honey, wasn’t sure what would work there-maybe some sort of jam? What would you use?

  2. Thanks for posting this recipe! I just watched the episode of Gordon Ramsey’s Ultimate Cookery Course (E07) where he makes this dish and I decided to make it myself.

    I followed your advice and got some country style (CS) pork ribs because, as you said, they are more meaty.

    HOWEVER, I would advise anybody who uses CS ribs, that you need to cook them for less time because mine came out fairly overcooked.

    I suggest doing 20 minutes on each side instead of 30 – otherwise the flavors of this dish were magnificent!
