a real good lickin’ | sticky ribs

A couple of months ago we had lunch with Mandy & Nath at The Oaks in Neutral Bay. Mandy mentioned that they had made some sticky ribs earlier in the week, so I mentally captured the method to recreate at home that night. Of course I varied the recipe from what Mandy used, so here it is;

To taste, create a marinade of soy sauce, honey, BBQ sauce, sweet chilli sauce, maple syrup, a shot of Woodford bourbon and a pinch of salt & pepper.

the marinade ingredients

Marinate the ribs for at least an hour in the fridge (overnight would be optimal).

marinating the ribs

Into the oven on 180°C for 40 minutes, basting with the left over marinade every 10-15 minutes. Turn it up to 220°C for 5 minutes at the end.

slow cooking the ribs

According to your preference, serve in whole racks or cut into finger-sized portions. Either way you’re going to end up to your elbows in sticky sauce!

carved & ready to eat!

I serve with handcut wedges or chips (depending on what potatoes I have available) sprinkled with veggie salt or my own mix of paprika, salt & pepper, and a homemade coleslaw.

Enjoy sitting on the floor picnic-style with your favourite beer (it’s a James Squire Pale Ale for me)!
