Getting our hands dirty in the kitchen: BBQ Ribs

I figured, i mean the Wife figured since we will be moving to Melbourne and probably earning meagre salaries, our dinners will probably consist of eating at home. So she has taken the initiative to learn up some simple recipes to whip up that can fill the stomach up.

Now her kitchen is no Prime Restaurant; no BBQ sauce that is made from scratch, no big grills and broilers. Instead we took the lazy way out, we went to the supermarket and grabbed a bottle of BBQ sauce.

I never would have thought that this BBQ sauce could do such wonders.

Well what are we making today with BBQ sauce?

Ribs. Now, we have tested below with pork ribs but feel free to use beef ribs, i reckon cooking time should be roughly the same.

There are also two ways to go around it; the proper way or the lazy man way.

Proper way - involves marinating your ribs with garlic, olive oil, pepper and lemon (if you are using pork). Thereafter, cook some minced garlic and onions till soft and add BBQ sauce to simmer. Once that is ready, pour over ribs and off to the oven it goes at 150-160 degrees celcius for roughly an hour. At 20 minute intervals, baste it with more BBQ sauce. Final ten minutes, you can baste it with some honey and cranked up the temperature to around 180-200 degrees celcius to get a nice char.

Lazy man way - Skip the marination, pour the BBQ sauce with garlic and onions on to ribs and put it into the oven. Same temperature and same procedure.

Either way the gist is marinate ribs, put in oven, baste ribs and you should be fine.

Serve with salad on side.


The result: succulent ribs that falls off the bone from the slow cooking.

This item, i think deserves to stay in the recipe book for life in Australia.
