its a luau



Well not really a luau its just pork ribs wrapped in banana leaves and cooked ever so slowly on a barbeque grill.



The ribs sat in a bath of fresh garlic, chile, sugar, salt, fresh ground pepper, garlic from a jar (thus including vinegar) garlic powder, onion powder and olive oil for 10 hours,



before they were wrapped in the banana leaves and then aluminum foil whereby they then rested in the fridge another 24 hours. Fold over and then over and then wrap tightly in foil.



These are the rib tips and the trimmings that received the same pampering



Two hours on medium to low heat on a covered grill produce the juiciest, most tasty ribs you will ever eat.




I like to unwrap them at the end and then crispy them up a little straight on the grill. You can shake the bone right out of them...trust me (if not I will post a video of the 'shake')

Yummy yummy! Reminds me of the days with my X. He lived if Hawaii for many years. Originally from New England. We would roast the whole pig in the ground with a bunch of goodies stuffed inside the pig. Really hard to find banana leaves in our area. I believe we ended up using corn husk. Just not the same.

joy: sound like the fixin's for a party

dragon: and while your at it press some tofu under heavy weights and then freeze it with some bbq sauce - thaw and press again and you should have a tough and chewy tofu delight all ready for grilling....

I was just watching a show on ribs the other day..I'll be getting some out of the freezer and trying this. The trick is find a place to buy the banana leaves.

wow--looks amazing!

I've never cooked using banana leaves, but my old roommate cooked a few meals with them. She would bring the banana leaves from the tree from her parent's house in New Orleans. I didn't know you could get them store.
