Step 1

Place the ribs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for about 1 hour. Drain and let cool.

In a bowl, combine the cornstarch and water. Set aside.

In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, lemon and lime zest, harissa and cinammon. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until syrupy, about 5 minutes. Add the cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil while whisking. Let cool.
