“The inspiration for this recipe come from one by Steven Raichlen (BBQ U fame). His recipe was far too peppery. These are Cambodian-style ribs. I made this with country ribs, that were cut much thinner than what I normally find in the market. They are bone-in, meaty, and fatty. I try to render most of the fat off on the grill. But watch those flare-ups! I did not like the dipping sauce, so just served lime wedges to squeeze onto the ribs.”

  1. In a food processor, combine ginger, garlic, sugar, 1 tablespoon salt, and pepper; puree to blend.

  3. Place ribs in a large non-reactive container, pour marinade over, toss to combine; cover and let marinate, refrigerated, at least 4 hours up to overnight.
  4. Bring to room temperature while heating up grill.
  5. Cook over medium hot coals until done to your liking, about 4 minutes per side; a little char here and there never hurt anyone :wink:
