Spicy & Sweet Citrus BBQ Pork Ribs with a Mushroom-String Bean Salad

Both the spicy & sweet pork ribs and mushroom string bean salad are DELICIOUS! After the first bite, you will be blown away! The pork ribs are super tender, and the homemade spicy and sweet BBQ sauce is the perfect sauce to compliment the ribs. The ribs take 8 hours to cook, so all you have to do is prep the sauce in advance, then put the pork in the oven! Once the pork is pretty much almost done, you can make the string bean salad. 

Let's get to cooking!

Spicy & Sweet Citrus BBQ Pork Ribs with a Mushroom-String Bean Salad

For the ribs & BBQ sauce: 

  • 6 pound pork ribs 
  • 3/4 cup coconut aminos 
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • zest of one orange 
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
For the mushroom-string bean salad:

  • 4 cups string beans
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 onion, medium diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
First, we are going to make the BBQ sauce. Add about a tablespoon of coconut oil to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, add in minced garlic and ginger. Once fragrant, add in coconut aminos, Worcestershire sauce, orange juice, orange zest, honey, salt, and pepper. Let simmer for at least a 1/2 hour on medium-low heat, stirring continuously. 

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Add pork ribs to a roast pan. Season with salt, pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Place on sliced limes and oranges. Place in oven and roast for about an hour. After the hour, pour on all of the BBQ sauce. Continue roasting for another 6-7 hours. 

Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high and once hot, add in onions and garlic. Saute for about 4 minutes or until translucent. Add in mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Once the mushrooms are finished, remove from heat and set aside. 

Once the pork is almost finished roasting, we are going to start the mushroom string bean salad. Heat salted water to a boil in a pot. Prepare an ice bath for blanching. Once the water is boiling, add in string beans and boil for about 6 minutes. Drain, and immediately add to ice bath. Remove from ice bath and place in pan and mix with mushroom mixture. Refrigerate until ready to serve. 

Plate pork ribs and string bean salad. Enjoy!
