Bear with me now jerk anything is a labor of love! you really gotta want it. Okay so I was up really late one night and was watching a food show that featured a Caribbean restaurant and they made jerk ribs. I just had it on as background noise. So i finally look up to the end product of these jerk ribs and they look delicious so immediately I think okay let me rewind and see this process and also see where this place is located. As I’m executing that plan my hand slips and turns the channel. Devastation. I try to remember everything I heard which ends up just being that they used some sort of dry rub, wet marinade, and pork ribs and baked in the oven. So with that set out my quest for jerk ribs. So I looked up some recipes. But ultimately decided to give my own a try and I’m sooooooooo glad I did. I’m beyond proud of how these ribs turned out! Also about the wet marinade if I had extra Habanero id substitute one out for the 5 piquin seeds.
