This is my first entry in a line of food inspired by music. We all know that 'Pour Some Sugar on Me' isn't about baking cakes, but there was a time when some songs about food, really were about food. Many of the songs I'm featuring were written during the Depression and the Second World War. People were hungry and homesick during those times. We sing about what we want. And these songs are about wanting food, and home.
A lot of this recipe will have to do with how you prepare your ribs. I like to slow cook them. The slow cooker also makes the sauce really thick. Feel free to use your favorite cooking method.
Chestnut Street Spare Ribs
4 lbs Spare Ribs
2 tbsp White Truffle Garlic Olive Oil
4 tbsp Prime Rub Seasoning
1/2 cup honey
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup Chocolate Balsamic
Rub down the ribs with the seasonings and olive oil. Broil for 5-6 minutes.
Whisk the honey garlic and balsamic together. Nest the ribs at the bottom of your slow cooker and pour the sauce over top. Close the lid tightly and cook on low for 3-4 hours or on high for 8 hours.
