Instant Pot “Game Day” Honey, Miso, & Sriracha Sticky Ribs and Wings

We couldn’t let the 52nd Super Bowl go by without a knock out recipe for ribs and wings, with a twist. 

A good friend named Elf passed on a recipe for slow cooked miso honey lamb shoulder recently, which is delicious, but my butcher had a run on the lamb today so I picked up spare ribs in compensation. I’m fairly confident that you won’t have a problem finding ribs before Game Day!

I added Sriracha, the well known hot sauce made from a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt, for a little heat and to add to the coating quality of the honey miso glaze. The quick yuzu cucumber pickles bring a bright citrus crunch to the soft fall-off-the-bone pork. Bring a stack of these ribs to the table, to share with friends, and wash down with a Sapporo. Brewed since 1876 it claims the title for the oldest brand of beer in Japan.

What a great way to welcome the month of February!

Zen Moment

“January is the quietest month in the garden.  …  But just because it looks quiet doesn’t mean that nothing is happening.  The soil, open to the sky, absorbs the pure rainfall while microorganisms convert tilled-under fodder into usable nutrients for the next crop of plants.  The feasting earthworms tunnel along, aerating the soil and preparing it to welcome the seeds and bare roots to come.”
