Ingredients

Method

  1. Put all the glaze ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat together well with a whisk. Set aside half of the glaze for later.
  2. Put the ribs in a large roasting dish and season generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Pour the glaze on the ribs, making sure they are well coated all over. This can be done a few hours before cooking, but overnight is even better.
  4. Preheat an oven to 160 degrees, Celsius or equivalent.
  5. Cover the dish with foil and place in the oven. Cook the ribs for two hours.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow them to rest for 10 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, place the reserved glaze in a small saucepan and gently heat until it is bubbling. Uncover the meat and pour the hot glaze all over, again making sure they are well coated.
  8. Move the pork on to a chopping board and cut between each rib, using a sharp knife.
  9. Serve with plenty of napkins.
