For this episode I’m in the kitchen with a Thai cooking virgin! My friend Colin Knecht is a fellow YouTuber and a talented woodworker who made me a beautiful wooden mortar and pestle that I’d always wanted. In exchange, I invited him over for a private Thai cooking lesson so I can get him started cooking Thai! He asked me to teach him a recipe for ribs (because apparently woodworkers love ribs) and he would like to learn how to cook them so that they are *tender* and juicy. I came up with this recipe, and I have to say that I even surprised myself how good they were! Best of all, you don’t even need to use the oven for these. So here’s a yummy rib recipe that is literally finger-licking good, and also a little 101 on how to cook ribs 🙂 Enjoy!
Check out this video where Colin taught me how to make the mortar and pestle!
