Spooky Recipe For Making Delicious Halloween Ribs
These ribs are scary and delicious at the same time, which makes them absolutely perfect for your Halloween party! Enjoy!
The recipe goes as follows: Start first with regular honey. Add in some Tabasco sauce. Stir that mixture until well combined. This will give your sauce covering a sweet, tangy, and spicy combination of flavor. Good ribs are all about combining and layering flavors. You don’t want your ribs to have just a single layer of flavor because you’ll be missing out on the opportunity to really shock your guests with some very fine cuisine for your Halloween party!
Next, combine the dry ingredients: Start with black salt. Black salt is not a common ingredient in most kitchens, but it can be a great staple to have handy and available for recipes such as this. If you choose to use course black salt, like what is used in the video here, you will need to grind and crush it. Even though this is a few extra moments of work, it gives your rub a fresher and stronger flavor, and who doesn’t want that!?
Add paprika to your finely crushed black salt, and follow that with garlic. Now, as you will see, this video does not give specific measurements for these ingredients, but there is a reason for that. Your measurements really depend on the size and number of the ribs you are using and cooking, and it also depends on individual tastes.
For example, if you do not like a super sweet flavor, you can opt for less honey and more tabasco in your first step wet mixture. If you have any sensitivities to salt intake, you can lessen the amount of salt that you use for your dry rub. If you are only making a small portion for yourself, obviously you should use much less of every ingredient, as opposed to if you are cooking several racks for a family cookout.
Everything can be and should be adjusted to your individual preferences. This always makes cooking more fun anyway because it allows each person to experiment to see what they like and dislike and what they prefer. After you have added paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder, finally add cumin. Combine all of these ingredients until well mixed together. Then stir in some brown sugar for a sweet and savory kick.
First brush your completely thawed ribs with the wet mixture of honey and tabasco. Next, press in the dry rub on all sides of the ribs to ensure maximum flavor. This dry mixture will also help create the outer caramelized crust, giving your ribs both great flavor and fantastic texture.
Pour your favorite stout beer into a pan, and place your ribs on a roasting rack above the beer. Cover the entire pan and rib rack with foil, and place in the oven at 300 degrees for a total of three hours. This video also contains a recipe if you are wanting to create the little skeleton head as well. Scary, right?!
For your final sauce to go over the cooked ribs, melt butter in a sauce pan; toss and lightly brown minced garlic for 2 minutes. Add in ketchup, apple juice, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, and cayenne powder. Remove ribs from oven and smother in wet sauce. Feast on the delicious dish you have created!
