BBQ Pork Spareribs
Delicious pork spareribs are the perfect BBQ eats for Spring afternoons.
These spicy BBQ glazed spareribs will bring the wow factor to your BBQ, but you may decide that you don’t want to share, even with your best friends...
Pairs perfectly with our Merlot or Shiraz for extra good times.
What you’ll need
500ml (2 cups) hot water
2 pork rib racks
Spicy BBQ glaze
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 teaspoons Paprika Smoked
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Place tomato sauce, Worcestershire, sugar, vinegar, mustard, paprika, oregano and cumin in a large saucepan over low heat. This easy tomato sauce recipe will make you rethink ever buying a bottle of pre-made tomato sauce ever again.
Stir for 2-3 minutes, until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium. Bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, until thickened slightly (don’t let it boil). Cool.
Combine the hot water and 2 tbs glaze in a roasting pan. Add the ribs. Cover the pan tightly with foil. Bake the ribs, turning once, for 2 hours or until tender.
Brush ribs with remaining glaze (see tips). If the glaze is too thick to brush, transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on Medium, in 30-second bursts, to thin slightly.
Preheat a barbecue grill or chargrill pan on medium. Cook ribs for 4-5 minutes each side or until caramelised and slightly charred. Transfer to a chopping board.
Cover ribs with foil and set aside for 2-3 minutes to rest before carving. Use a large sharp knife to cut between the ribs and transfer to a serving platter.
