texan-style pork ribs

  • 4 x 500g racks pork ribs, trimmed
  • 1 bulb garlic, halved
  • 2 long red chillies, halved
  • ¾ cup (210g) tomato puree (passata)
  • ¼ cup (60ml) Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup (60ml) malt vinegar
  • ¾ cup (265g) golden syrup
  • sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  1. Place the ribs, garlic and 1 of the chillies in a large saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 1 hour or until ribs are tender. Remove the ribs and place on a large oven tray, discarding the cooking liquid. 
  2. Preheat oven to 220°C. Place the tomato puree, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, vinegar, golden syrup, salt, pepper, water and remaining chilli in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup (60ml) of the marinade. 
  3. Pour the remaining marinade over the ribs, cover with aluminium foil and cook for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and cook for a further 10–15 minutes or until dark golden brown and sticky. Serve with the reserved marinade. Serves 4.
