Sweet and sour roast pork ribs

This space has become, for me, not just a spot to share my favourite food stories but also to serve as a recipe book of sorts. Where our grandmothers had recipes flowing through their veins, our mothers newspaper clippings and recipes scrawled on little pieces of paper, I'm building a collection of a slightly different medium.

I suppose it's all about moving with the times, isn't it?

This is probably one of my favourite dishes growing up - a simple recipe with remarkable results.


Pork ribs
Tomato sauce
Chilli sauce
Oyster sauce
Soy sauce

Putting all the ingredients together, marinate the pork ribs for 2-4 hours. This is one of those recipes that requires a little bit of discretion (which is why I have not specified quantities) but roughly equal parts of sauces and seasoning would be a good way to go.
Pop into a pre-heated oven and allow to roast for 1 and a half hours at 200 degrees celsius, flipping the ribs after 1 hour.

I love recipes where most of the cooking can be done without much supervision - and when a recipe like that turns out moist, slightly tangy, very flavourful ribs, what's not to love?
