Broiled Pork Spare Ribs
If you like the authentic taste of real Thai food, and like to eat juicy and flavorful pork spare ribs, then you'll love my recipe for oven broiled ribs made with traditional Thai herbs and spices. I start by boiling the ribs in a rich and aromatic broth made with lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf, and galangal root to infuse them with a taste of Thailand, then marinate them in a delicious sauce made with garlic, coriander root, black pepper, and soy sauces, before broiling them in a hot oven. The result is a plate of ribs unlike any other. Try it, you'll love it!
