Sweet and sour pork loin ribs

Preparation time

30 mins to 1 hour

Cooking time

over 2 hours


Serves 2

These ribs come with a tempting sweet and sour glaze and are just so easy to make. You could cut the pork loin ribs up into smaller pieces, but if you can keep them as whole as possible the ribs will remain more succulent.
