Grilled Baby Back Ribs with an Asian Twist

I was planning  on grilling Greek Style Baby Back Ribs for dinner tonight.  But after seeing Lori’s  (All That Splatters) Asian Lime Ribs I was inspired to try something Asian.

The ribs were rubbed with fresh garlic, salt, pepper and the juice from a lemon.   Grilled until tender and then served with an Asian dipping sauce.  The same sauce I served  with the Asian Lettuce Cups.    I would definitely do this again.

Asian chicken lettuce cups
Use this as an outline.
Measurements are just approximate. I don’t measure anything.

1 or 2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 pound of chicken breasts ground, or
lean ground pork
1 minced garlic clove
1 or 2 teaspoons minced ginger
1/2 cup chopped  onion
chicken broth
3 green onions chopped
Bean sprouts
fresh chopped cilantro
Lettuce Leaves

Heat oil and saute the onions, when soft add the  ground chicken or pork.  Do not brown.  Add the garlic and the ginger.   Add a little chicken broth to stop the meat from sticking.  Simmer until meat is cooked.  Season with salt. Remove from the heat and add the green onion.


(season to suit own taste)

1/2 cup rice vinegar
1 or 2 tablespoons of garlic chili sauce or Thai sweet chili sauce.
minced ginger
minced garlic
sesame oil to taste

Additional ingredients.
Peanuts (Optional)
toasted sesame seeds
Chopped water chestnuts

To serve, spoon on to lettuce leaves and drizzle on a little of the sauce. Top with bean sprouts and cilantro.

    Though these look fabulous my heart went pitty pat when I thought you were making Greek ribs, my favorite version. Oh well, soon I hope.

  6. Lovely! All my fave ingredients!

  7. Thank you again for your comments. Linda, blame it on Lori. I did. LoriE, I must admit that Greek Ribs are my favourite. But it was nice to try something different that we both liked. Baby Back Ribs were on sale this week so I picked up four slabs. Greek Ribs will be on the menu one day soon and so will another favourite – Stuffed Ribs.
