Caribbean Sticky Spare Ribs image

Description Edit

Who can resist sticky barbecued spare ribs? These Caribbean style ribs are simmered in a jerk-style sauce. You can buy jars of ground jerk seasoning in most supermarkets. It’s a mix of thyme, cinnamon, coriander, garlic ginger and, of course, chili! If you’re doing these for a barbecue, simmer in the sauce the day before then leave to marinate overnight in the fridge before putting on the barbecue to brown and crisp.

Ingredients Edit

Preparation Edit

  1. Coarsely grate the Bramley apples. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the apples, onion, and ginger and sauté for 4 minutes.
  2. Add the jerk seasoning, ketchup, treacle, and pineapple juice and bring to the boil.
  3. Add the spare ribs to the pan, season, cover and bring to the boil. Then simmer for 30 minutes, turning occasionally until the ribs are tender and the sauce reduced.
  4. Lift the ribs from the sauce and cook under a hot grill or barbecue for 10-15 minutes, turning and brushing with more sauce until the ribs are crispy and golden brown.
  5. Serve with plenty of napkins and a finger bowl, then with rice. Garnish with the chili leaves, if desired.
