PREPARATION

MARINADE

Put the honey in a bowl. Peel the shallot, chop finely and to the honey. Wash the thyme and shake dry, pluck off the leaves and add to the mixture. Add the soy sauce and mix everything with salt, season with pepper and some chili powder.

MEAT

Pat the meat dry, remove tendons, skins and fat, rub with marinade, leaving some marinade aside. Cut the meat into pieces, so that they fit side by side into a frying pan. Heat the oil in the pan and sear the meat pieces on each side for 2 minutes. Reduce the tempe-rature and cook the meat covered at medium heat for 15 minutes, turning it from time to time.

AVOCADO CREAM

In the meantime, peel the avocados remove the seeds, and crush the flesh in a bowl. Squeeze the lemon and stir in the juice. Stir in the cream cheese and the balsamic cream and season with salt and pepper.

TOPPING

Preheat the oven to 150°C (circulating air). Take the meat out of the pan and put the buns in the oven to warm them. First cut the meat crosswise into thin slices, then cut again lengthwise, so that you can cut very small pieces. Take the buns out of the oven, cut them open, and spread a thin layer of avocado cream on both si-des. Place 1 lettuce leaf on the lower half, place 2 slices of tomato on the leaf, and spread the finely chopped meat on top. Spread the gorgonzola over it and add 2 pear slices. Place the top half of the bun on top.

PREPARATION

SPARERIBS

Preheat the oven to 120°C (circulating air). Pat the spare ribs dry, remove tendons, skin and fat, and cut or saw into pieces (4-5 ribs per portion). Line two baking trays with baking paper.

Mix hoisin, soy and teriyaki sauce with mustard, honey and tomato ketchup. Peel and chop the onion, and add to the sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Brush the spare ribs with marinade (do not use all of it), and wrap them with tin foil. Make sure that the mari-nade does not leak out of the foil. Spread onto the paper on the baking tray, and put them into the oven (bottom and top) for 3 - 3 ½ hours.

Take the spare ribs out of the oven, unwrap them, and put them into an ovenproof container. Set the oven to 220°C grill function, and fry the spare ribs for a few minutes until crispy, while coating them several times with the rest of the marinade. Take out of the oven, cover with foil and wrap them in kitchen towels.

Turn the oven back to 200°C (circulating air) and bake the fries for 10 minutes. Turn and bake for another 10 minutes until crisp, then sprinkle with sea salt. Put the spare ribs on plates, and serve them with the French fries and the dip.

DIP

In the meantime, peel the garlic and crush it into a bowl. Add cream cheese, olive oil, chili powder, salt and pepper, and mix everything together. Wash the parsley, dab dry and chop finely. Then stir into the dip. Cover the dip and place into the refrigerator until serving.

FRENCH FRIES

Approximately 40 minutes before the spare ribs are done wash the sweet potatoes and peel as desired. Cut into French fries chop-sticks and put them in a large cling film bag. Add the starch and shake well. Place the fries side by side on a backing tray lined with baking paper (or - if there is no third tray – put on the oven rack) and sprinkle with olive oil.

ENJOY!
