Braised Spareribs with Plum Sauce

This delicious recipe for spareribs with Asian flavors from chef Paul Tang makes a wonderful change from the typical BBQ rubs. Ideally marinate the ribs overnight and cook them slowly in the Combi steam oven, so the meat tenderizes and reaches that wonderful fall off the bone texture. The ribs can also be prepared in the traditional manner, covered with foil or a tight fitting lid in the Convection oven. The ribs can then be finished on the grill or under the broiler in the Convection oven.

Ingredients

Spareribs and Marinade


2 lbs pork spareribs , cut in half lengthwise or whole

1 tsp Kosher salt

2 tsp sugar

2 tbsp Chinese rice wine or Sherry

2 tbsp ginger, grated



Glaze


6 cloves garlic, minced

3 tbsp plum sauce

3 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tsp soy sauce

¼ cup water


Garnish


2 green onions, sliced thin

1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


Preparation

Cut the ribs apart between the bones. Place ribs in a large resealable plastic bag with the salt, sugar, wine, ginger and massage the marinade into the ribs. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. When ready to cook, place the ribs in a glass casserole or the solid Steam oven pan.


Steam Oven Method: Heat the oven to 280 degrees in the Steam mode and cook the ribs uncovered for 1 ½ - 2 hours until the meat is beginning to fall off the bone.


Convection Oven Method: Heat the oven to 300 degrees in the Convection mode. Place the ribs in an oven-proof casserole dish, add ½ cup of water and cover the dish tightly with foil. Cook for 1 ½ - 2 hours until the meat is beginning to fall off the bone.


In a small bowl whisk all the ingredients for the glaze, set aside.

Once the ribs are cooked and almost falling off the bone, brush the ribs with the glaze all over.


Heat the Convection oven in the Broil mode High or 485 degrees. Place the ribs on a foil lined rimmed baking sheet and broil for approximately 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.


Notes: remember when using the Broil mode your oven will come to temperature very quickly. Make sure an oven rack is in a suitable position for broiling before heating the oven and always broil with the oven door closed.

BBQ Pulled Turkey

Turkey pieces slowly braised in a homemade BBQ sauce then pulled off the bone and served with cornbread or soft rolls is a delicious easy dish to prepare and a perfect dish for entertaining. This dish can be cooked covered in Convection or uncovered in the Steam oven.


The homemade BBQ sauce is also key to achieving great flavor with this recipe so begin by preparing the BBQ sauce and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, season the turkey pieces and set them aside to absorb the flavors. Even though the skin is discarded when shredding the turkey, braising the turkey with the skin on does add to the fat content but most importantly it adds great flavor.

Ingredients

For the BBQ sauce


2 tbsp butter + 1tbs oil

1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

Combine the following ingredients

3/4 cup of apple cider vinegar

¾ cup ketchup

1 Tbsp tomato paste

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp dry mustard powder

2 tsp smoked paprika

1 cup water


For the turkey


2 bone-in turkey thighs or a combination of bone-in  leg and thigh or leg and breast

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tsp Kosher salt

1 tsp pepper

1 Tbsp chipotle chili in adobo sauce (optional)

Preparation

A large oven-safe pan or Dutch oven is ideal for preparing the sauce then you can just put the turkey pieces into the sauce and transfer the pan to the oven. Otherwise, prepare the sauce in an oven safe casserole, and add the turkey pieces.


Saute the onions in the butter and oil over moderate heat until softened. Stir in the garlic and cook gently for a few minutes then add the remaining sauce ingredients that you have combined. Simmer over a gentle heat for about 30 minutes.


Meanwhile, season the turkey pieces with paprika, salt, and pepper and set aside.


Heat the oven, Convection Bake 325F (163C) or Steam Braising 325F (163C). 


Add the turkey pieces to the BBQ sauce and stir in the Chipotle Chili pepper if using. These peppers add a wonderful touch of smokey heat to the sauce. Place the pan in the oven (covered if using Convection) and cook for 1 ½ - 2 hours until the meat is very tender and easily falls off the bone.


In order to “pull” the turkey remove the pieces from the hot sauce and set aside to cool. Remove the skin, discard the bones and shred the meat by hand or with a fork and knife. Return to the pulled turkey to the sauce and reheat if needed before serving.
