  • For the blueberry-and-soya basting sauce:
  • 1 x 360 g punnet Woolworths Flavourburst blueberries
  • 2⁄3 cup soya sauce
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 T Muscovado sugar
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 x 5 cm piece fresh ginger , peeled and sliced
  • 1 kg good-quality pork ribs

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. To make the basting sauce, place the blueberries, soya sauce, star anise and sugar in a saucepan and reduce until syrupy, about 15–20 minutes. Add the lime juice, garlic and ginger for the last 5 minutes of cooking time, then allow to cool slightly.

2. Place the ribs in a deep baking tray, pour over the basting sauce, then cover well with foil. Roast for 2 hours, then remove the foil and strain any pan juices into a small saucepan. Reduce the liquid by half to make a glaze. Brush onto the ribs, then return to the oven and grill until sticky, about 5–10 minutes.
