Zea's Ribs

One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants from New Orleans is Zea's Rotisserie & Grill
I miss their wood fired trout topped with lump crabmeat, I miss their corn grits and I miss their Thai baby back ribs.
When we visit during Thanksgiving, you can bet the farm that I'll be there Friday evening with A.J. sitting right next to me sipping on one of their signature micro brews. The homegirlz will be there too because they will not pass up sesame chicken on a stick appetizers.
A.J.'s brother and sister-in-law brought us a bottle of Zea's Thai Rib Sauce. I was drooling when I saw it and could not wait to get some ribs cooking. This sauce can be purchased online at the link above. I am not paid by Zea's, just a fan. Anyway, back to the sauce. This Thai sauce has a deep rich aged flavor with a little bit of heat going on in the background. It's savory just plain good!


Cut one slab of baby back pork ribs into slabs of three ribs. The ribs will still cook slowly and evenly which will add a deeper flavor to the ribs. Generously season the ribs with salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Bake the ribs in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 30 minutes, turn and cook for another 30 minutes. Baste every 15 minutes and continue baking until done.

If only the weather would have cooperated and we could have grilled these babies outdoors. Man oh man! Sakes a live! It doesn't get much better than this!

That sounds simply wonderful! I've decided we have real similar tastes so I'd probably love it too!
