BBQ Pork Spare Ribs

Ingredients

  • 2 to 2.5kg pork spare ribs, cut into serving size pieces
  • 125g butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) distilled white vinegar
  • 250ml (1 cup) water
  • 250ml (1 cup) ketchup
  • 250ml (1 cup) barbecue sauce
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Method

Place ribs in large frying pan or roasting pan. Cover with lightly salted water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 1 hour, or until meat is tender, but not quite falling off the bone. Remove from heat, and drain. 

While the ribs are simmering, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic until the onion softens. Remove from the heat. 

In a blender, combine vinegar,water, ketchup, barbecue sauce and lemon juice. Pour in the melted butter mixture, and purée for 1 minute.  Pour into the saucepan, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. 

Place the cooked ribs in a roasting pan, and mix with the sauce. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, up to overnight. 

Preheat barbecue for medium-high heat. 

Brush the grill hotplate with oil. Cook ribs for 10 to 20 minutes, or until well browned, basting with sauce and turning frequently. 

 

Tip:

If you like your spare ribs spicy, add Tabasco sauce or crushed chillies to taste.

Use a gas barbecue for delicious food, fast.
