Chocolate caramelized pork ribs. Recipe

The other day, letting myself be carried away by the winds while surfing the net (which anachronism begins to sound that expression), I found these impressive chocolate caramelised pork ribs.

As the original recipe, published by Hotel Chocolat in The Telegraph, was very long and complicated, since it involved several hours in the oven and then a careful grilling process with the grill, I have decided to simplify it a little, but I already tell you that the result it is still spectacular.

Ingredients for 2 people

  • 1 rack of pork (1 / 2kg approx.), 20ml of balsamic vinegar, 20ml of soy sauce, 25g of dark chocolate, 35g of rosemary honey, 20g of brown sugar, 1 clove of garlic and a sprig of rosemary .

How to Make Chocolate Caramelized Pork Ribs

We start by preparing the sauce. In a bowl, mix the vinegar, rosemary honey, soy sauce and brown sugar. If the honey is not rosemary, nothing happens, but it helps to enhance the flavor. Once we have mixed well, add the peeled garlic clove and the sprig of rosemary and leave to infuse for at least an hour at room temperature.

After that time, pour the sauce in a non-stick saucepan or frying pan and heat over very low heat, allowing it to thicken slowly. Then we incorporate the grated or crumbled chocolate until it melts, turn off the heat and reserve.

On the other hand, we separate each rib from the rib with the help of a sharp knife. We lightly salt them and place them on a tray or a baking bowl in which they fit rather just. Add the sauce, making sure they are well impregnated, cover with aluminum foil and bake for one hour with the oven at 175ºC.

After that time, we remove the ribs from the oven and turn them over. We raise the temperature to 225ºC and bake for 20 more minutes, turning them again after 10 minutes. If you see that they are drying too much, you can cover them again with aluminum foil. Finally, we remove from the oven and serve by painting the ribs with a little of the sauce that will remain on the tray.

Processing time | Three hours
Difficulty | Half


These chocolate caramelized pork ribs are a real deli. Vinegar and rosemary give it a balsamic touch that counteracts the sweetness of honey and chocolate, creating a small universe of flavors in the mouth with each bite.
