Serious Eats: Recipes
Cook the Book: Honey Spareribs
"I love ribs and ribs love me." That was the opening line for the best song about ribs I've ever heard, penned by a younger yours truly along with a vegetarian friend. You might wonder what kind of sick childhood I had, but honestly I have no idea why I would co-write and sing a ribs ditty. I just liked ribs, plain and simple, or rather, I loved them if you take my lyrics to heart.
Sheila Lukins' recipe for honey ribs is laughably simple. I'm serious; it's basically just honey + ribs. There's not much to mess up, and the balance of salty and sweet is seriously satisfying.
