Here’s the Rub!
Here’s the Rub! it’s been a little while since I made these tasty ribs. BBQ-style pork ribs with a dark cocoa rub and fresh cabbage & coriander slaw. The meat takes on a sweeter more mellow note using the bitter flavour of the cocoa to complement the paprika.
These ingredients are a basic guideline. So many folks out there have so many delicious recipes for what constitutes a good BBQ style pork or beef dish.
For me this spice rub delivers a sweet, mellow flavour alongside with those chillies. If you want more tang, add more vinegar. If you prefer those astringent flavours then add in more mustard or Worcestershire? It’s totally up to you!
Perhaps you have a tried & true sauce recipe and simply want to try the cocoa spice rub, go ahead! Sometimes a change is as good as a holiday! BBQ Pork Ribs with a Cocoa Spice Rub.
On another note, do you remember the dough from the Foccacia which I set aside? Here are some little muffin top bread rolls. Simply left to prove for a couple of days, rolled in a bit of cornmeal or polenta and baked in a muffin tin for 25 mins. Gotta try it to believe it!
