Super Tasty Marinated Pork Ribs

This recipe is the quickest of all the Pork Rib recipes, and there is no sacrifice in flavour, so give it a whirl and impress your family and friends.

INGREDIENTS:- (for 4 to 6 people):
About 2kgs of Pork Ribs. 1 small cup of Sweet Chille Sauce, 1 small cup of BBQ Sauce, 1/2 small cup Tomato Ketchup, 1/2 small cup of Soya Sauce, juice of 1 Lemon. 


Mix all the Marinade ingredients together.
Preheat the oven to a hot 220degC.

Place the ribs in a large, shallow oven tray and place in the hot oven for about 10 to 15 minutes to brown.

In the meantime mix all the marinade ingredients together...use more or less chile for a hotter or milder sauce.

Remove ribs from the oven and coat on both sides with the marinade. Place back in the oven ,reduce heat down to 180degC and bake for a further 40 minutes until the marinade has set and the meat is cooked through.

Alternatively you may turn the heat right down and cook the ribs slowly on about 135degC for a good 2 to 3 hours.

Take the ribs from the oven and let cool down for about 10 to 15 minutes with some tin foil over them...

Only cut them up into singles at the very last minute...or leave your guest to do that with their fingers.


This one uses typical Aussie Ingredients, as well as the other way of doing ribs, which is with a Meat Rub, and then a Marinade Sauce to go with it. More complex than the first recipe, it is still pretty easy to do, and is certainly worth the extra effort.

For the Meat Rub:  3/4 Tsps of Ground Cumin, 2 Tsps of Dried Oregano Leaves, 
 2 Tbsps Brown Sugar, 1/2 Tsp Table Salt, 1/4 Tsps of Cayenne Pepper and 1/2 Tsps of Ground Black Pepper.  

For the Marinade / Sauce1/4 cup of Pineapple Juice (or orange or pear), 1/4 cup of Plain Oil, 1/4 cup of Lime Juice, 3/4 cup of Diced Mango, 1 Green Chile deseeded, 1/2 Tsp of Dried Oregano, 1/4 Tsps Table Salt, 1 Clove of Garlic, 1/2 cup of Roughly Ground Toasted Macademia Nuts. Optional: a Tbsp of Australian Honey.

And 2kg of Pork Ribs

METHODTake the Pork Ribs and leave in a rack. Combine all the meat rub ingredients together and rub into the flesh of the ribs, then put them aside at room temperature for at least half an hour, preferably an hour (or in the fridge overnight if you wish).

Then combine all the marinade/sauce ingredients together and blitz them in a food processor until you have a smooth paste.

Place the Pork Ribs in a shallow oven tray, in a hot 200degC preheated oven, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes at this heat. 
Then remove from the oven and baste HALF the sauce over the ribs, before putting the ribs back in a slightly cooler (180degC) oven for a further 40 minutes. 
Save the rest of the sauce to eat with the ribs.

OTHER RIB RECIPES:  There are hundreds of them, but you can easily invent your own...the meat is forgiving with the end result usually loved by all and sundry. Follow this basic rule and you can't go wrong, whatever you use for the marinade or sauce:-   Essentially you are trying to create asweet and sour/savoury taste combination for the marinade. You can do this in many different ways, for example for the Sweet, add four Tbsps of Jam or Jelly, or Sweet Chille or Honey, or Maple Syrup, or Plum Sauce, or even just Brown Sugar...then for the Sour, use either Vinegar, Lemon Juice, Lime Juice, and then for the Savoury use things like Soy Sauce, Worcestershire Sauce, BBQ Sauce, Tomato Ketchup, Hoi Sin Sauce.

You should start off with even amounts of each Taste Element, mix them all together and then taste yourself to see what it's like. Simply adjust to your family's own liking...some like it sweet, some sour and some savoury...just experiment.

TIPI always make more sauce than I need...that's because it always freezes well, but also because people like extra when they are eating the ribs...some to dollop on the ribs and some to dollop onto the Mashed Potato, which I find is obligatory for this dish....

SERVE WITH:  As I said above, Mashed Potato is a MUST, but you could equally use Rice, or Polenta, Cous Cous or even Baked Potatoes.

As for the veggies, if you are using the BBQ to cook the Ribs, then I would slice and BBQ cook some Red Capsicums, Mushrooms, Onions, Zuccini and Egg Plant. Or if you are using the oven for the ribs, then I would roughly chop these vegetables up, slosh over some olive oil, salt and pepper and roast them below the meat in the same oven for about 30 to 45 minutes.
