Step 3

Add the ribs to the mixture, Bring to the boil; reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes, rotating the ribs often to ensure even cooking.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


The weather did not permit for us to grill the ribs so I cooked them in the oven then crisped them under the broiler while brushing them with the sauce. The only change I made to the recipe was to add a good dash of pepper to the ribs before broiling them. They turned out perfectly!!!
