They say that God removed a spare rib of Adam’s to make Eve. I find this very difficult to believe. Not because I want to start a fight with the Creationists. That argument is for another time and a different place. Perhaps at Easter on the Galapagos Islands?
I can think of far better things to do with spare ribs. I am not starting to show cannibal tendencies either. For this fine rib recipe, I use pork ribs. I also use this fantastic smoked paprika emblazoned with the Lord’s picture. Perhaps my sub-conscious treats it as a kind of insurance?
There are only four ingredients apart from the ribs in my very tasty and easy to cook Spanish Paprika, Honey, Soy and Pepper Ribs. Each time I make them, I vary the quantities depending on how I feel. The picture is as good a guide as you are going to get.
The first thing to do is to boil a big pot of water and add the ribs. Boil them for 20 minutes or so. They look pretty awful when they come out.
Dry them and add to the marinade. Toss them in the mixture. Cover and leave for a few hours, turning them and basting them every hour or so.Fire up the barbecue and cook the ribs. They don’t need a lot of cooking. Remember the boiling earlier.
While they are looking after themselves, put the marinade in a small pot and bring it to the boil. Reduce it and reserve to pour over the cooked ribs. Be sure to boil it. Otherwise, you may feel unwell. Very unwell.
Adam would have been proud. Eve, well under my plan Eve would not have got a look in, would she?
