Spare ribs for the braai

Posted in Braai Recipes on April 9, 2013 by ribshackred

RibshackNothing says fantastic weeknight dinner better than a braai. Here’s a spare rib braai recipe to pair with great times and a glass of Rib Shack Red.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup mango chutney
  • ½ tsp sesame oil (you can use ordinary oil)
  • 1 Tbs Worcester sauce
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic – peeled & grated
  • 1small knob of ginger- grated
  • 1 tsp Chinese spice (optional)
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • ¼ cup water

Method:

Put your ribs into a big saucepan and cover with water, bring slowly to a boil and simmer gently for a further 30 minutes, you will see the meat will start to recede on the bone a little.

They will be a little scummy so rinse them off under the tap.

Place in a shallow dish.

Mix all of the sauce ingredients together.

Pour over the ribs and leave overnight in the fridge if possible.

Braai until they are golden brown and sticky (keep basting) they won’t take long.
