Hot Honey Chipotle Ribs with Honey Lime Brussels Sprouts
Sometimes I just don’t know what goes on in that brain of mine that makes me want to cook something like this for lunch. Isn’t it just easier to grab a slice of bread, throw it in the toaster and lather on it some butter and vegemite? Yeah it is but it ain’t gonna taste as good as this Hot Honey Chipotle Ribs with Honey Lime Brussels Sprouts.
Looking at the recipe, you’ll also agree that it’s pretty damn easy too. Actually I had this ready in under 30 minutes. Yes, life is much easier when the sauce is ready made and why not. I’ve used Red Duck’s Hot Honey Chipotle Sauce to coat the ribs and I even added some on my plate as a dipping sauce for the sweet yet tangy brussels sprouts.
You’ve probably all noticed in my insta stories that I BBQ a lot. Yep. Wanna know why? Because I hate washing up. My skin on my fingers are so dry from cooking and washing so often that I just wanted to cook something that involved only the BBQ. That’s why both the ribs and brussels sprouts are cooked on the BBQ. What does that mean? NO CLEANING UP! Yay! Well, hubby cleans the BBQ when he gets home. Fair exchange right? He gets a warm lunch meal and I don’t have to clean up pots and pans.
So, give these a go. They are so delicious. And if you’re a ribs lover like I am, make sure you buy the pork ribs because in 15 minutes they are ready, juicy, tender and full of flavour. Enjoy x
1 kg pork ribs
8 tbs Red Duck Hot Honey Chipotle Sauce*
(+extra for dipping)
400-500g brussels sprouts
2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs fresh lime juice
1 tbs raw honey
sea salt / pepper
Marinate the pork ribs with the sauce and leave in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
In the meantime, cut the Brussels sprouts in half and place them on a hot bbq. Cook on each side for 3 minutes or until golden. Place in a shallow bowl. In a separate bowl whisked the honey with the olive oil and limejuice and then pour all over the Brussels sprouts. Season and leave aside.
Place the ribs onto the bbq grill and cook on each side for approximately 7-8 minute each side.
Serve ribs hot with the brussels sprouts and optional boiled rice. Enjoy x
You can purchase this sauce through @purenaturalandorganics otherwise you can use any chipotle sauce you have available but I do recommend the sweet - chilli flavour of this particular sauce!
