These freezer-friendly honey garlic ribs are just what that says. Make them once and prepare to be asked to make them all the time! My kids call these ribs, the greatest of all time, and I believe them. There is a reason why I have to make these at least every couple of months if not more often.
Freezer-Friendly Honey Garlic Ribs For Any Season
These ribs fall off the bone, and they are finger-licking good. Something about the mix of flavors makes these memorable. However, I have improvised once in a while, so if you find yourself short on some ingredients, feel free to add others.
To begin, I always gather my ingredients and tools. Start by pulling out your two racks of pork baby rack ribs, water, honey, soy sauce, cornstarch, and garlic.
You can use other ingredients, such as beef ribs, pork chops, pork loin, agave nectar, brown sugar, tamari sauce, Worcestershire sauce, flour, and garlic powder.
If you want this meal to be spicier, try adding red pepper flakes or a touch of sriracha. I often find that my guests prefer a mild dish, but when you know yours can handle it, you can add more heat. You could also add other spices, such as ginger or lemongrass.
The first thing to do is preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. You will want to bake the ribs for about one and a half hours, but check on them halfway.
Cook the sauce in a saucepan with the rest of the ingredients until it thickens. Then serve it on top of your cooked ribs. Serve warm over white rice.
Freezing and Unfreezing the Ribs
To refrigerate them, allow for the ribs and the sauce to cool down completely. Pack everything into an airtight container and refrigerate for up to three days. Reheat in the microwave when ready to serve.
To freeze this dish, leave the ribs uncooked and freeze them. In another container or bag, add the rest of the ingredients. Freeze everything for up to eight months. Thaw it overnight when you are ready to cook and follow the directions.
