Here's a Filipino way to so some ribs. It's actually a take on the dish bistek, which is stir-fried beef strips with sautéed onions. Instead, we used baby back ribs and broiled them for two hours.
It's really easy to make, it just takes time. It's a "set it and forget it" kind of dish. Leaving time to do other stuff like writing or playing a relaxing game of sudoku. Go run an errand or something by the time you get home you got some delicious ribs. Plus, the onions are really easy to put together and only takes minutes.
You can use a slow cooker as well. After marinating, place all the ingredients in the slow cooker before going to work. Set it on medium to low. 8-hours later you got some awesome ribs. Ready to eat. Simple.
The end result will come out tender and clean off the bone goodness. I had this with some steamed rice.
Pinoy Style: Broiled Baby Back Ribs
1 slab baby back ribs (cut into pieces)
1/2 c soy sauce
1/3 brown sugar
juice of half a lemon
1 onion (sliced)
Combine the soy sauce, brown sugar and lemon juice. Stir until the brown sugar fully dissolves.
Spread the marinade over and let it rest for at least an hour. This may be done ahead of time, if not cooking on the same day,
Preheat your broiler.
Transfer the ribs into an oven safe dish, covered with foil and place in the broiler for 2 hours. Save the marinade.
Heat the oil in a pan and saute the onions until tender. Take the marinade and add it to the onions. Saute for 2 min.
When the ribs are done, pour over the onions and sauce onto the ribs.
Serve with some steamed rice.
