Hi people! I know it hasn't been easy for most of you to deal with self-isolations and social distancing because of the COVID-19 pandemic; it definitely hasn't been easy for me. Luckily, you can throw yourselves a little self party with easy and delicious homemade sticky pork ribs. All that time + nowhere to go + online groceries delivery = a little indulgence!
Preheat oven to 130C. Spray the set of ribs with a little oil, then liberally rub pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper and a little salt into both sides. Wrap properly in foil and set on a baking sheet meat side down and leave it in the oven for 2 hours.
Meanwhile, heat in a pan two tablespoons of butter, and add a quarter of a chopped onion and three chopped pods of garlic. Once the onions are translucent, add a cup of tomato sauce, a cup of generic BBQ sauce, half a cup of mustard sauce, half a cup of Worcestershire sauce, a spoon of cinnamon sugar, a tablespoon of maple syrup, and lots of cayenne pepper and paprika. Add a little water and simmer to reduce until thickened.
Get the ribs out of the oven and change the oven temperature to 240C. Remove the foil. Brush lots of sauce onto both sides of the ribs and pop back into the oven for 8-10 min each side or until the sauce has carmelized onto the ribs. Brush a little more sauce on and serve hot! (Save the rest of the sauce for later !!)
PS: remember to wash your hands with soap before you get your hands sticky and especially after! Stay safe and sane.
