Sweet and sticky beef ribs

Sweet and sticky beef ribs⠀

There is nothing better than getting your hands messy on an irresistible plate of sweet and sticky beef ribs The ribs are slow cooked until juicy and tender then smothered with a glossy sweet and spicy sauce. ⠀

This recipe can be used for lamb ribs too but will be a bit more indulgent due to the extra fat. ⠀

Ingredients ⠀

Beef ribs:⠀
1 rack beef ribs ⠀
1/4 cup brown sugar ⠀
2 tbsp garlic powder⠀
1 tbsp paprika ⠀
1 tsp cumin powder⠀
1 tsp salt⠀
1 tsp cayenne pepper⠀
1 tsp dried thyme⠀
1 tsp cracked black pepper ⠀
2 tbsp oil ⠀
Spring onions, sliced ⠀

1/2 cup honey⠀
2/3 cup tomato sauce⠀
3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce⠀
1 tbsp white vinegar ⠀

Method ⠀

Preheat oven to 160 C fan forced and line a large tray with baking paper.⠀

Prepare ribs by washing and pat dry with a paper towel. ⠀

In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, garlic powder, paprika, cumin powder, salt, cayenne pepper, dried thyme and cracked black pepper. ⠀

In another bowl place the ribs and coat with oil. Generously rub the sugar and herbs mixture on both sides of the ribs. ⠀

Cover ribs tightly with foil and place on the lined baking tray. Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. ⠀

While the ribs are in the oven, prepare the glaze by placing the honey, tomato sauce, soy sauce and white vinegar in a small saucepan and simmer on medium heat. The glaze will start to bubble and once thickened remove from heat and set aside. ⠀

After 1 hour and 30 minutes remove ribs from the oven and drain any excess liquid. Remove ribs from foil and place directly on tray. Coat both sides of the ribs generously with the glaze and place back in the oven at 180 c fan forced for another 15 minutes. ⠀

Remove ribs from oven and garnish with spring onions. Serve while warm. Enjoy!
