Its been months or would I say almost a year when I made a oven roasted pork ribs. Yesterday night, my asked me what would be our lunch for Sunday. Since it’s been a long time I quickly answered pork ribs.
I don’t have specific recipe of pork ribs in mind. Then I remembered this youtube video featuring our very own Jeepney Maharlika’s chef doing a pork ribs recipe. However, no specific amount of ingredients were specified so I must trust my power of estimation to get the right amount of ingredients.
The recipe is a classic Filipino take on barbecue. We have our soy sauce, banana ketchup, sugar and Sprite or 7-up. The ribs is first marinated for an hour using a dry rub of spices. Then, the surface of he ribs is baste using the Filipino-style barbecue sauce and bake for 2 1/2 hours. I removed it from the oven. Baste my pork ribs with the remaining Filipino-style barbecue sauce and switched my oven to broiler mode and pop it in for another 3 minutes, just enough to caramelized my barbecue sauce.
To compliment my Filipino-style Pork Ribs, I decided to pair it with nice potato wedges. I cut my potatoes into wedges and boiled it until tender. I saute some garlic in melted butter and olive oil. Then, I tossed in my potatoes and seasoned it with Hamburger powder flavoring. Then I baked it for 20 minutes in the oven.
1 kilo Pork Ribs
4 teaspoons Paprika
2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
1 teaspoons Ginger Powder
1 teaspoons Black Pepper
2 teaspoons Salt
2 teaspoons Brown Sugar
Filipino-style Barbecue Sauce
1/2 cup Sprite or 7 Up
1/2 cup Banana ketchup
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1/4 cup Brown Sugar

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
3 cloves Garlic, roughly chopped

Clean pork ribs by removing excess fat and the thin film. Tap with clean towel to dry. Combine paprika, garlic powder, ginger powder, pepper, salt and brown sugar. Rub the dry ingredients onto the pork ribs and marinate for at least an hour. You can do this the night before for better flavor absorption.
In a sauce pan, combine Sprite or 7 Up, ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar and vodka. Simmer until the sauce thickens.
Lay the marinated pork ribs on an aluminum foil. Pour half of the barbecue sauce onto the pork ribs. Cover the ribs with another aluminum foil and seal. Bake for 2 1/2 hours. Remove the ribs from the oven. Open the aluminum foil and pour the remaining half of the barbecue sauce. Switch your oven to broiling mode. Broil the pork ribs for 5 minutes or until the barbecue sauce caramelized.
For the potato wedges, combine potatoes, salt and Italian Seasoning. Pour water until all the potatoes are submerge. Boil until tender and drain. In a hot pan, melt butter and olive oil. Saute chopped garlic. Add potatoes and tossed in the Hamburger Powder. Tossed the potatoes for 5 minutes. Transfer in the oven, preheated at 200 degrees Celsius and bake for 20 minutes. Serve with Filipino-style Pork Ribs.
