Chipotle and Pork should be Married

Chipotle and Pork should be Married

Actually, it is probably more true to say that chipotle and *I* should be married! But seriously – how good is that smokey flavour, the heat that creeps up on you but doesn’t overpower… ahhhhh chipotle you have been one of my favs for years and years. I’m glad Aussie palettes are finally getting the opportunity to fall in love with (and totally embrace) chipotle.

Sticky Pork tacos with all sorts of yum!

Sticky Pork tacos with all sorts of yum!

Yum yum yum! This combination of flavours includes some of my absolute favourites.

I follow a fab food blog Pinch of Yum and in my emails last week I had a couple of yummy things pop up.
First came the recipe for Caramelised Pork Tacos and then a few days later this Avocado and Coriander (Cilantro in other places of the world) dressing/sauce landed in my inbox too – and I’m thinking ooohh… they would go so well together and I needed an excuse to make more Chipotle Mayo which I knew would be a perfect accompaniment. So last Thursday I was determined to make the creations and include some other of my favourite yums as well.

OMG Delish Sticky Pork Spareribs

OMG Delish Sticky Pork Spareribs

I drove past our local butcher (where I must confess… I rarely shop…) on Tuesday and saw a special on pork spare ribs; ‘must remember to go back and get those at some point’ I thought and wow, I did remember!
Yesterday was my day off work so I knew I could dedicate a bit of time to marinating and preparation so I bought 2kg of the ribs. Now to find a recipe – originally I thought I’d do them American BBQ style however I have done a lot of those flavours lately. The other flavours that (to me) goes beautifully with pork are Asian. I did a quick search and came across Donna Hay’s Sticky Pork Spare Ribs… that’ll work. I bought 2kg of the ribs but just wanted to try this on half (maybe the others will get the American BBQ treatment after all!) so I halved the original recipe’s quantities.
