These ribs are slathered in an American-style barbecue sauce, made with orange juice, maple syrup, sugar and tomato sauce. Serve with baked potatoes and sour cream.


  • 2 pork spareribs racks, about 500 g each
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Baked potatoes with sour cream and chopped chives, for serving
  • For the marinade, mix:
  • 2 T oil
  • 6 T tomato sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 T maple syrup or runny honey
  • 1 T soft brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Arrange the ribs in a single layer on a large roasting pan lined with baking paper. Pour over the marinade.

Bake for 1 hour, turning and basting now and again, until soft and sticky, well-browned and starting to catch. Season to taste.

Serve with the baked potatoes, sour cream and chopped chives.
