• Description:

    You simply can't go wrong with well-prepared, perfectly sauced, dripping with tastiness, fall-off-the-bone ribs. This pork ribs recipe might take a little longer to prepare, but in the end it will all be worth it – and everyone will agree. Marinate these in the fridge overnight for the most flavourful and best possible results. Serve with potato wedges, a side salad and plenty of napkins.

  • Ingredients:

    15 ml (1 tbsp.) oil
    1 onion; finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves; crushed
    5 ml (1 tsp.) ground coriander
    5 ml (1 tsp.) cumin
    5 ml (1 tsp.) allspice

    2 ml (½ tsp.) cayenne pepper
    30 ml (2 tbsp.) brown sugar
    5 ml (1 tbsp.) lemon juice
    80 ml (⅓ cup) chutney
    15 ml (1 tbsp.) Dijon mustard

    45 ml (3 tbsp.) apricot jam
    250 ml (1 cup) water
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    2 kg pork ribs

  • Method:

    1. To make the rib marinade, heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat and sauté the onion and garlic for 4 minutes until soft and golden. Add the spices. Stir for about 2 minutes.
    2. Add the brown sugar and lemon juice and stir until combined. Add the chutney, Dijon mustard, apricot jam and the water. Lightly season with salt and black pepper.
    3. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened. Remove from heat and cool.
    4. Place the ribs in a large dish and pour the marinade over. Marinate overnight or at least 2 hours.
