My roommate and I have lived together since our sophomore year of college. So, when I found out I’d be working for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA), she was one of the first to know. She had never heard of celiac disease before and since I’ve been with NFCA, she’s been interested in learning more about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet. She’s been an eager taste-tester for Gluten-Free Hot Products and she’s been asking me if she could cook something for the blog for a while.
When NFCA started the Cook for Your Love giveaway with Thai Kitchen, I knew this was the perfect chance to get her involved in gluten-free cooking. I had some of Thai Kitchen’s Spicy Thai Chili Dipping & All-Purpose Sauce in the cabinet that I’ve been wanting to try, so she checked the company’s website and found a recipe for Spicy Thai BBQ Ribs and got to cooking while I was still at the office.
Her choice was pretty surprising to both of us, seeing as though neither of us are big fans of ribs. Because we had most of the ingredients at home already, she figured this would be a good opportunity to branch out and try something new. When I came home from work, she already had the ribs prepped and was topping them with the Spicy Thai Chili Sauce. They baked in the oven for about 20 minutes on each side, and then she broiled them for about another 10 minutes. When my roommate flipped the ribs, she spooned some of the residual sauce onto the ribs to keep them well-coated.
The ribs tasted amazing! The sauce gave them a little heat, but nothing that was too overpowering or too spicy to really enjoy. We both agreed that while the other ingredients added to the nice flavor of the ribs, it was really the Spicy Thai Chili Sauce that made them so delicious.
Even though we used the sauce to coat our ribs, that’s definitely not the only way you can use the sauce. You can dunk shrimp in it, add it to your grilled chicken, use it in a dip recipe, or even make your own mayonnaise.
