This spare ribs recipe from Chang beer is perfect for all the family or for if you’re entertaining so why not give them a go?

Here’s what you’ll need and how to make it –

Chang Steamed Spare Ribs


Ribs -

1 rack of pork belly ribs

1ltr Chang Beer

2 strips of casia bark or cinnamon stalk

1 star anise and 6 cloves

1 stalk lemon grass

100g raw peeled peanuts

Chilli glaze -

2 tbsp. coriander stalks

2 garlic cloves

2 chillies

150ml sweet chilli sauce

2 tbsp. fish sauce

Juice of ½ lime


Cook pork ribs on a rack over the beer and spices for 3 hours in a steamer. Allow to cool before portioning into individual ribs.

Place peeled raw peanuts in a pan of cold water and bring to the boil. Drain, dry and cool.

Roast the peanuts in a low oven at 110 degrees, for around 20-30 minutes until light golden brown

Crush the peanuts in a clean tea towel using a rolling pin.

For the chilli glaze, place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth

Fry the ribs until soft lightly caramelised. Brush on the sticky chilli glaze.

Finally roll in crushed, roasted peanuts. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
