A sticky situation…

7 Sep

Which basically covers everything 🙂 We started going to the gym recently and I discovered that I love “starring” in Free Willy at the gym. Unfortunately, my body decided against it and I got a cold 😦 So, I was one lazy whale. Also, we discovered we had a guest in the house that particularly love sticky things.. a little mouse. As you can imagine, the Big Lion in the house was simply furious! How dare a mouse enter his lair?!!  Hilarious! So monday evening, after discovering we had a mouse, he started working on his hunting technique. Also, I didn’t cook. Anything. I have been feeling sorry for myself because of this stupid cold. NO energy.

So after emptying the shop to get everything ready for the mouse trap in our lair, the lion was ready. He explained in every detail how he will catch this mouse, especially by luring it with peanut butter. “They just love peanut butter”. Oh, I said, “So you’ve caught mice before then?” .. and he replies, “no, I never even caught one mouse”. Ahem. Needless to say, while he was busy with his hunting strategy, I was busy with my sticky strategy. We had some pork ribs that we didn’t toss on the barbeque, which we had to cook today. So, last night, all I did was create a marinade for these babies 🙂 Very sticky, sweet, but hey, comforting enough to make me forget about my sore throat & aching body, even if just for a few minutes. Seems like all the stickiness helped after all, the lion caught the mouse after all! ;-p Just shows you…. primal instinct ;-p

Sticky & Sweet ribs

1/2 cup of soya sauce

1/4 cup of sunflower oil

3 tablespoons of white wine vinegar

2 teaspoons of fresh grated ginger

5 tablespoons of honey

4 tablespoons of brown sugar 1 teaspoon of garlic

2 packs of pork ribs, basically 1 kg

All you do, is mix together all the ingredients. Break up your ribs in smallish pieces and cover and toss around in the marinade. Cover with clingfilm wrap and place in the fridge overnight. All you do now when you get home from work is preheat your oven to 180 C.

Place your ribs on a tray, “thick meat side down” and drizzle the marinade over it. Cook for 30 -45 minutes. Take out after 20 minutes and baste in the sauce and place back in the oven. Serve up with some oven baked chips and a side salad, simple, sticky and happy 🙂
