  • 1 Rack Ribs per person Okay, we're greedy, you can share a rack if you like
  • 1 3/4 cups Ketchup
  • 3 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 Onion Finely Chopped
  • 3 tbsp Worchester Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Tabasco Sauce Adjust this to taste - I tend to add a bit more these days.
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 160°C 320°F
  • Put the ribs in roasting tins, cover with water. Wrap silver foil around the roasting tins to make a seal. This means the ribs will cook slowly in the water and steam making them super soft with the meat dropping off the bone.
  • Pop them in the oven and then make the sauce. Chop the onion up and mix together with all the other ingredients. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • After 2 hours, take the ribs out and put to one side. Whack up the heat to 220°c 430°F. Get rid of the water and clean the roasting tins. Put the ribs back in the tins and cover with the BBQ sauce. Glaze in the ribs for 20-25 minutes and serve with chips.
