Lazy me likes lazy toss-together dinners. Here is such a dinner. Super easy prep yet big return on the dinner table.
This is from Nigella Express, a treasured cookbook, and number #5 in my Cookbook Countdown.
See how easy it is to prepare? You need some gallon sized freezer bags, then toss all ingredients in one bag. Simple stuff, right?
Nigella's Maple Pork Ribs
A slab of pork ribs
1 1/2 cups apple juice
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 cinnamon stick broken in half
6 unpeeled cloves garlic
Put the ribs and chicken in large freezer bags or a dish you can cover. I use freezer bags as it's easier to mix the marinade and super easy for cleanup.
Add all the remaining ingredients and squelch and mix together. Seal the bags.
Leave to marinate in the fridge for up to two days.
Turn the bags every few hours or when I'm in the fridge for a drink or whatever. This will allow the meat to sit in the maple marinade if you turn the bags.
Take the meat out of the fridge. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pour the contents of the freezer bags into a roasting pan. Place in the preheated oven for and hour and 15 minutes by which time everything should be sticky and glossy brown.
This is my fifth book in the Cookbook Countdown hosted at Kitchen Flavours.
Coming up will be Nigel Slater's new book Eat. I am enjoying that one already and I've only had it two days.
