Slow roasted bbq ribs is a very traditional POlish dish. During my 1 day workshop in a kitchen restaurant, I have asked the executive chef for a recipe. In a blink of an eye, he gave me this one with the words that this is a really good one 🙂 So I had no other choice than to take it 🙂 And I can tell you that it was worth to ask, as this recipe is freaking awesome in my opinion 🙂

The ribs are slowly roasted for 3 hours so you have to count with some cooking time. But once you try them you will be amazed 🙂 The meat is super juicy and tender, falling from bones, simply yum 🙂

Secondly. the sauce is one of the best I’ve ever had. It is smoky, spicy, creamy and simply delicious.

Last but not least, I really loved the Polish twist on the mashed potatoes. Once I have baked them with a grated smoked cheese on top, they were like from other dimension.

If you want to try them you have 2 choices. Number one, you can make them at home and number two, you can visit SISSI Restaurant & Wine in Kraków, Poland where they are served.

How to make the slow roasted BBQ ribs with creamy sauce, and baked mashed potatoes with smoked cheese?

The slow roasted ribs:

The first tip to very delicious slow roasted ribs is the dry rub. Just mix all the ingredients together, and rub them into the pork ribs. Leave for a while so the meat can start to release some juices and also, the herbs can get inside the meat.

Second tip is to marinate the ribs at room temperature. Thanks to this step all the flavours will be getting deeper into the meat. Also, the meat will be baked evenly.

The third tip is to bake the slow roasted ribs under the aluminum foil. But make sure you will place the foil with the mating side up.

The sauce:

To make the sauce just heat up a bigger pot and add the vegetable oil, onions, chili flakes, garlic, and the cumin. Roast for several minutes and then add the balsamic vinegar.

Leave it to evaporate a bit and then add the soy sauce and the Worchester sauce. Bring to boil and add the ketchup, smoke flavor, cane sugar, and the sugar molasses. Bring to boil and switch off the heat. Leave to cool and then blend with a blender until you get a smooth sauce.

The baked mashed potatoes:

To make the baked mashed potatoes place them into ramekins and add the grated cheese on top. Bake in the preheated oven at 160°C for 10 minutes.
