Donabe smoked country pork ribs

I just love my donabe smoker so much.
With donabe smoker, "Ibushi Gin", I can make wonderful smoked dishes so quick and easy, with the most delicious result.

I got the simple pork country ribs. I seasoned them just with salt, pepper, and some Chinese five-spice. Once the smoke chips were set on the bottom, the pork cuts were laid on the bottom and the middle racks of the donabe smoker. The donabe was set over high heat (gas stove top) for 7 minutes without the lid, 8 minutes with the lid on, then 20 minutes resting off the heat (with the lid on).

In just 35 minutes (with the minimum work), the juicy smokey pork country ribs were ready. So wonderful! It was so tender and I couldn't stop eating. I served the pork with my first Hiyashi Chuka (Chinese-style cold noodle) of this year with the black vinegar sauce. They were great together.

Happy donabe life.
