Sticky bourbon pork ribs


These ribs are sticky, sweet, messy and damn good. You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.

You'll need

1.5 kg American-style pork spare ribs   Bourbon marinade 400 gm canned whole tomatoes 150 gm brown sugar 125 ml (½ cup) each barbecue and tomato sauce 125 ml Kentucky bourbon 125 ml (½ cup) apple cider vinegar 60 ml (¼ cup) each Worcestershire and soy sauce

Method

  • 01

  • 02
  • Place ribs in a non-reactive container, pour over marinade, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Transfer ribs and sauce to two baking dishes, spreading in a single layer, then roast, covered and basting occasionally, until tender (3 hours). Remove ribs from marinade and set aside.
  • 04
  • Transfer marinade to a saucepan, cook over medium heat until reduced to a glaze (10-20 minutes).
