Guava Orange Pork Ribs
Everyone’s favorite with a touch of Home
Inspired by one of my favorite dish at a local diner called Big City Diner back in Honolulu.
Totally made the recipe up on the spot at Ralphs, but how can you screw up pork ribs, right?
Rub various spice on the ribs (I tried to go easy on the minced garlic to not overwhelm the flavor of the fruit.. but garlic is key to get rid of the “pork smell”)
Cover in orange zest
Slow cook in the Crock Pot for 4-5 Hours with Guava Juice and fresh Orange Juice (from the orange you zested)
After the slow cook, heat the oven and pour out the juice and simmer to get it thicker
Paste on the thicker pork/guava/orange juice on to the ribs (don’t get too excited and paste it all, take it slow baby.. nice and slow)
(Note: Bought guava jam thinking that it will be better suited for broiling, but the damn jam I bought didn’t taste remotely close to guava… damn mainlanders lol but I would recommend trying if you have a legit one)
Keep pasting as it broils and stop when you see some browning (meats already cooked, you’re broiling it for the burnt look and further infusing the flavors)
