Slow roasted barbeque Pork Ribs

Serves 6
Prep Time: 10minutes
Cooking Time: 2.5 – 3 hours


2 x 15ml tomato puree
1 x 15ml spoon Worcestershire sauce
1 x 15ml spoon dark soy sauce
1 x 15ml spoon sugar
100ml light chicken stock
1/4 x 5ml spoon Chinese five spice powder
1/4 x 5ml ground coriander
1kg pork spare ribs


Set the oven to 140°C/275F/Gas Mark 1

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl then place in a deep baking tray or roasting tin.

Add the pork ribs and mix well to coat then cover very tightly with foil.

Re-cover with the foil, then place in the oven and cook for 1 hour, then remove and turn and baste the ribs.

Place back in the oven for another hour, then remove and turn and baste, then return to the oven for one last hour, making a total of three hours.

If at any time all the liquid has evaporated, just top up with a little water until it becomes a thick paste again.

To serve, either cool then chill and barbeque as needed, or serve hot straight from the oven.
