Ingredients: serves 3-4


1 rack of short pork ribs


For the sauce:

400ml/ ¾ pint +/- good tomato sauce

1 teaspoon ground ginger

½ teaspoon ground hot chilli

½ teaspoon hot sauce (Tabasco or similar)

2 dessertspoon honey

½ dessertspoon soy sauce

1/2dessertspoon Worcestershire Sauce

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1teaspoon finely chopped garlic or ½ teaspoon garlic puree

Mix well with a whisk and adjust to taste – I find it’s the lemon juice/garlic/chilli balance that makes it just right so you may want to experiment a bit



mix the sauce

cut the ribs from the rack, running the knife against each bone on one side to get even pieces

place the ribs in an oven dish

cover with the sauce

and make sure all the ribs are fully coated

cover in foil and place in the oven pre-heated to 150°C for 2-2 ½ hours

It is the slow cooking that makes the ribs so tender so that the meat will almost fall from the bone – ideal for eating with your fingers but also perfect to strip away with just a fork


Serve when ready with my southern fried chicken, luxury potato salad and some coleslaw
