For those who have heard of Naughty Nuri would have known of their perfectly grilled Balinese Style BBQ Pork Ribs that are coated with some sweetly fragrant black sauce, resulting in ribs that are flavorful and tender.

They had aggressively expanded their business and had branches over Malaysia and Singapore. I had my share a few weeks ago and my love affair with the ribs started from the very first bite. It’s intensely well-flavoured and the meat from the ribs that just fall-apart tender.

My love for the ribs did not just stop there. It inspired me to recreate it in my kitchen and here’s my rendition of the Naughty Nuri’s Ribs ~ Notti Eri’s Rib.

I did a bit of research online and found this recipe. However, it does not really reflect the cooking method used by Naughty Nuri which Naughty Nuri actually boiled the ribs till fall apart tender before brushing the ribs with the sauce. Moreover, there are not much spices used in the recipe. I adapted part of this recipe and modified based on my memory of the taste from Naughty Nuri with an addition of refreshing herbs of my own. Reviews are ~ taste even better than the original Nuri’s rib with the extra refreshing herby kick!~

Preparation of the ribs starts with removing the membrane from the back of the ribs. The membrane can get tough and chewy when cooked. You can look into this link to get detailed steps on how to remove the membrane from the ribs.

*If you cannot get the whole slab of ribs, please feel free to use any cut-up Prime Pork ribs/ Beef Rib you can find from the supermarket. It is just as good!

Cleaning and Cooking the Ribs

After cleaning and removing the membrane from the ribs, boil the rib in water and remove all the scum. Throw away the water and wash the ribs. Add the pork ribs to a pot of seasoned water with bay leaves and onions. Bring it to boil and lower the heat to allow the ribs to simmer for another 2 hours until the meat from the ribs are fall apart tender.

While the pork is simmering, prepare the sauce.

Pressure Cooker Method

You can also use pressure cooker to cook the ribs until fall apart tender.

  1. Parboil the ribs in a saucepan over medium high heat on the stove
  2. Once boil, remove the pot from the stove, discard the water and wash the ribs to ensure that they are free from any scum.
  3. Then, to replace the boiling of the ribs in pressure cooker, add all ingredients for the pork rib brine (reduce the water to 1.5 litres) into the pressure cooker and pressure for 1 hour under high setting or any setting to stew beef.
  4. After pressure cooked, dry the ribs and continue the remaining steps (coating the ribs with sauce and grill/air fry) as per the recipe.

Preparing the Sauce

Blend all the spices and herbs until smooth and pan fry until fragrance. *To make it more kids friendly, omit the chili padi.

Add the sweet soy sauce (Kecap Manis), sugar and soy sauce mixture and allow the sauce to thicken until it can coat the spoon.

You do not want the sauce to be too diluted (it will not be able to coat the ribs nicely) or too thick (not easy to brush over the ribs evenly).

This recipe whip up more sauce than required ~on purpose :P. The remaining sauce can be kept in container and brush over grilled fish or grill chicken. You can even keep it to make the 2nd batch of ribs. This sauce can be kept in the fridge for quite a while.

My bestie from Indo recommended this brand of kecap manis. It can be easily found in NTUC or any supermarket.

    Hi, I give this recipe a try as my brother was in town.
    I have never seen ribs being eaten so fast…
    They may not be the same as naughty Nuri’s but they are truly excellent.
    I will make them again.
    Thanks for sharing the recipe

    • eckitchensg Post author

      That’s great! Actually I also plan on making it again soon. Glad that you like it.

      Thanks for the update too.

        The sauce is truly wonderful! Going to grill the ribs tonight so I am looking forward to it! Just wondering, I made extra for future use, how long can I store them and how do I warm up up again for us? Noob in the kitchen here!

        • eckitchensg Post author

          Hi There, Yes i do agree with the sauce! I also made extra and store in the fridge. I would say under proper storage, it should be able to be kept in the chiller for at least a month.

          For future use, do you intend to use it on the ribs? if yes, there is no need to reheat. Just spread it over the ribs. If the consistency is too sticky to spread, then you can consider microwaving it.

          Hope it helps 🙂
