Romesco Pork Ribs

Preparation Time15 mins
Cook Time1 hr


60g blanched almonds
200g roasted red capsicums in oil, drained
2 cloves garlic
2 tbs sherry vinegar
⅓ cup olive oil
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp coriander seeds, toasted & ground
1.5kg pork ribs (about 2 racks)
lemon wedges and continental parsley, to serve
sea salt and black pepper


Place almonds, capsicums, garlic, vinegar, oil, oregano, paprika and coriander in a food processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Place ribs in a large bowl. Add the romesco and toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to marinate.

Preheat oven to 150°C Fan.

Pour ribs and marinade into a large roasting tray, separating the ribs so they’re not touching. Season with salt and roast for 30 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 180°C and roast for a further 20 minutes, turning occasionally, until caramelised and tender.

Pile up onto a plate and serve with lemon wedges and parsley.
