Food - Masterchef Sticky BBQ Pork Ribs

Pay attention all you foodies out there! I have a very special announcement: First, my mum is at the very top of my 'coolest people' list and second, MasterChef's recipes (ya know, the cooking competition that's on Australian TV every night of the week) are the shiz.

My very own MasterChef kitchen was going off this evening as my mum, Jude, recreated a fabulous MasterChef creation - Sticky BBQ Pork Ribs. And when I say fabulous, I mean fabulous. Ohmygoodnessgraciousme there was a party in my mouth and all of the spices in cupboard were invited. These ribs were packed with so much flavour that when I took a bite, I had physically stop chewing for a moment while a tasty bomb exploded in my mouth. Chilli, orange rind, bay leaves, cinnamon, paprika, mustard powder, ground cumin, oregano leaves were all on included, just to name a few. Yes, there is a lot of ingredients involved which can be a bit scary, but honestly, the result is an amazing balance of flavours (just the right amount of spice contrasted with sweetness and smokiness). To add even more pizzazz to the meal, mum whipped up (literally ha!) a homemade mayonnaise and some crispy squared potatoes to side. Good one!

There is something magical about eating pork ribs in the comfort of your own home - you can get all messy and really enjoy the flavours.

BBQ Pork Ribs, you are my new favourite meal. AH-mazing.

There is a how-to video on the MasterChef website - I'm currently trying to embed it into this post, so hopefully it will be up soon. Otherwise, click here to watch if ya just can't wait. I would struggle, this is seriously good stuff.

What's your favourite dish?
I've got so many, gosh!
