Prep Time:
Servings: Ribs Serves: 6 8
Cooking Time: Bake for 2 hours
  • 30ml - (2 tablespoons) HP Sauce
  • 30ml - (2 tablespoons) white vinegar
  • - ½ red onion, finely chopped
  • - Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 15ml - (1 tablespoon) Worcestershire sauce
  • 30ml - (2 tablespoons) tomato paste
  • 5ml - (1 teaspoon) hot chilli sauce
  • - 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 500ml - (2 cups) tomato sauce


Preheat oven to 180°C. Season the ribs liberally with salt and pepper on both sides and place in a deep roasting pan.

To make barbecue sauce

1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk well to combine.

2. Add 1 cup water to the sauce, pour over the ribs until completely submerged; if not, add a bit more sauce and water or use a smaller pan.

3. Cover tightly with aluminum foil, place in oven, bake for about 2 hours or until meat is almost falling off the bone.

4. Remove from oven, drain liquid immediately. It is best to make the ribs a day ahead up to this point  and refrigerate ribs overnight.

4. Bring ribs to room temperature before grilling.

5. Preheat grill to high. Place ribs on a rack in a roasting tin.

6. Grill for just a few minutes on each side.

7. Serve with grilled corn.
