My fav juicy ribs

It is with great reluctance that I share my favourite rib recipe but I realise for recipes to keep evolving I must....

2 kg American style pork spare ribs (choose meaty ones)


3 cloves garlic

4 finely sliced large onions (into rings)

1 1/2 cups tomato sauce

1/2 - 3/4 cup cider vinegar

1 heaped teaspoon curry powder

1 heaped teaspoon paprika

1/2 tsp chilli powder (optional)

3 heaped tbsp brown sugar

4 heaped tbsp seeded mustard

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven 200 degrees celsius. Carve the ribs into single ribs. Heat oil in a frypan cook garlic until golden. Remove garlic and saute spareribs.

Place in an oven-proof tray (arch facing down). Add garlic and place onion rings over the top. 

In a bowl, mix together all other ingredients and pour over ribs. Cover with foil and bake approx 1 hour or until meat is tender and juicy.

Make sure you wear a bib. You can make double the sauce mixture if you like plenty.
