  • 2 kg pork ribs
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • For the BBQ marinade;
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 T canola oil
  • 1 T ground cumin
  • 1 T ground coriander
  • 2 t cumin seeds
  • 2 t smoked paprika
  • 2 T tomato paste
  • 4 T Worcestershire sauce
  • 1½ cups apple cider vinegar
  • cup water
  • ¾ cup maple syrup

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Season the ribs and roast for 90 minutes.

To make the marinade, fry the onion in the canola oil. Once caramelised, add the spices and fry for a few minutes until fragrant. Add the remaining ingredients, mix and simmer until sticky.

Remove the ribs from the oven and baste with the BBQ marinade. Return to the oven for 10 minutes, basting often, until sticky and tender. Reserve a little marinade for serving.

Cook’s note: Serve with traditional coleslaw or make one with celery, fennel and apple. Toss with some of the mapleand- mustard salad dressing
