BBQ pork ribs

I found some spare ribs on a rare visit to a large supermarket (I usually shop online or in Tesco Metro-sized shops) and as it was something I don't come across normally I thought I would buy them and figure out what to do with them later.


I found a recipe for barbecue pork ribs that looked both simple and tasty. To make the glaze, mix brown sugar, ketchup, soy sauce and vinegar and heat in a small pan until the sugar has dissolved.

 Pour the glaze over the ribs, in a baking tin you have lined with tin foil and cook in the oven.

 It doesn't take very long to cook as there is not actually much meat on the ribs; the glaze will caramelize on top.

Serve with potato wedges - here the ribs are still attached to each other, it seemed less messy than splitting them all up but I still got quite messy when I ate them!

I am sending this to Four Seasons Food as their current theme to tie in with autumn is roasts. You don't have to just roast a joint of meat and serve it with roast potatoes- these BBQ ribs are roasted and make a really nice change. The challenge is hosted by Louisa at Eat Your Veg and Anneli at Delicieux.

  1. Oh I do love spare ribs! Messy but sooooo worth it. I made them for my kids for the first time a few months ago, and carnivore Master Jacques went totally crazy for them. But I've yet to make them again, think I will now! Thanks so much for linking up to the Four Seasons Food roasting challenge, Louisa
