Serves 4 people

Barbecue season is absolutely upon us, and it's time to break out the big gun recipes. These ribs are absolutely the very best thing that will come off your grill this summer….so, dig in!

  • 3kg American-cut pork ribs
  • 500ml red wine
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • salt and pepper
  • 400g can diced tomatoes
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup treacle
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp Tabasco sauce

1 Combine the pork ribs, wine and garlic, then marinate overnight. Arrange the ribs on wire racks set over trays and place in the centre of a barbecue whose outside burners are set to low. Cook for 3-4 hours, basting regularly with wine, until the meat pulls away from the bones.

2 Pour the tomatoes, sugar, vinegar, treacle, tomato paste, spices and Tabasco into a saucepan and set over a high heat. Boil for 5 minutes, until thickened, then serve with the ribs.
