Roasted ribs & vegetable rice

There ain’t nothing like roasted ribs on a hot weekend with friends. Must admit I love preparing them during summer vacation at the seaside, when all of my friends come over and we enjoy them with a couple of cold beers on the terrace in front of the house. Afterwards we go to the beach just 3 min from the house where we lay in the sun, play cards, swim and have fun. But while in Zagreb, my family is the one who enjoys the ribs I cook, they usually come on the weekend when I get some free time off from work. It’s funny how all of us love spicy food, so even the youngest members don’t complain when I use chili pepper in combination with cayenne pepper. πŸ˜€

I love the sticky part of these ribs and there is just no way to avoid getting messy, but that’s the point. Not to mention the spicy, hot flavour that will blow your mind. Just the recipe for Easter which is almost here, just a few days away and these ribs would be a sure thing! So check out the recipe, give it a go, if not for the Easter weekend, there is always the next one. πŸ™‚
