Thai Tom Yum Pork Ribs

  • SERVES: 2
  • PREP: 8 to 24 hours for marinating, 1 hour to cook
  • TOTAL TIME: minimum 9 hours

All the flavor of Tom Yum soup but glazed onto tender, sticky ribs.

Before you say “NOOOO I can’t make this!! I can’t get tom yum seasoning!!”, trust me, you can, and it is SO worth keeping for the rest of time. I usually get mine via Amazon Prime but if you’re anti-that for whatever reason, there are a ton of cool spice places online that you can get it on right now, here on the same Al Gore internet you are currently connected to.
