Beef Variation

A simple, easy and comforting Sunday night meal at the end of a busy and tiring week: Massaman beef curry made with a good quality readymade sauce/paste @zestbyronbay, Basmati rice and stir fried veggies. I use Basmati rice as it has a much lower glycemic index. As much as I love Jasmine rice, it has an incredibly high GI! You can substitute the beef with chicken or tofu and veggies. I pressure cooked the beef before adding the coconut milk, but you can use a slow cooker or cook it on the stove top for a few hours until the meat is soft & tender.

Traditionally, potatoes are added to Massaman curry, but combining starchy carbs is never a good idea so I have left them out.

BBQ Pork Ribs with Massaman Satay Recipe

BBQ Pork Ribs with Massaman Satay - Zest Byron BayServes 6

Ingredients

1-2 Racks of Pork Ribs (16-20 Ribs)
175g Zest Massaman Blend
1 heaped tbs crunchy natural peanut butter
1 cup chicken/veg stock
Oil for basting

Method

Wash and pat dry the ribs. Remove the thin membrane on the underside. To do this, slip a knife between the membrane and bones, hold it with a paper towel and pull away.

In a large, deep tray, marinate the ribs in Massaman Blend for at least 4 hours (overnight is best).

Heat oven to 160°C, cover tray tightly with foil and roast in the oven for 2 hours or until fork-tender. Cool.

Once cooked, drain juices into a small pot and add peanut butter and stock. Stir well and simmer until sauce thickens to form a paste.

Heat BBQ to medium, then cook ribs for 20 minutes, turning and basting with oil every 5 minutes.

Once the ribs have good markings from the BBQ, spread the paste well over and cut between the bones. Serve.
