Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 2 hours



2 racks pork spare ribs

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper


3 tbsp tomato sauce or ketchup

1 tbsp tomato paste

1 tbsp tamari soy sauce

2 tsp chipotle paste

1 tbsp BBQ sauce

1 clove garlic, pressed

¼ cup water



Preheat the oven to 135°C on a fan function.

Remove excess fat from the ribs and season with salt and pepper and let it marinate for up to 30 mins.

Place the ribs, meat side up, onto a baking tray lined with aluminium foil and cover the tray with an additional piece of foil.

Bake for 2 hours or until the meat is tender.


Combine all glaze ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a light simmer. Cook for up to one minute, stirring continuously.

Remove from the heat and set aside until needed for basting.

When the ribs are done, remove from the oven and increase the heat to 180C.

Apply the first layer of glazing on the top of the ribs and bake for 10 minutes. Then, remove from the oven and apply the second layer of glaze. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until the glaze has caramelized.

Let the ribs sit on the counter for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
