Spare ribs that melt in your mouth, with a tasty Chinese-style mango sauce. Perfect for a Sunday brunch!

Ingredients: 

Marinade: 

  • 2 racks pork spare ribs, cut individually
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese 3 spice powder
  • 4 tbsp Holy Cow! Mango & Chilli BBQ Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 inch of ginger, grated

Cooking 

  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp black pepper, coarsely crushed
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 carrot, cut into chunks
  • 2 star anise (whole)
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick
  • 2 tbsp of black bean sauce (optional)

Sauce

  • 90g/2oz Holy Cow! Mango & Chilli BBQ Sauce
  • 30g/1oz Worcestershire sauce
  • 60ml/2oz light soy sauce
  • 90g/3oz honey (or plum sauce)
  • 1/4 tsp chilli flakes (adjust for your prefered heat level)

Preparation method

  1. Toss the ribs in all the marinade ingredients, use your hands to mix them properly and set aside for at least 2 hours. It wouldn’t hurt if they stay there overnight (in an air-tight container).
  2. Place the ribs with the marinade in a large saucepan with all the cooking ingredients. Cover with water, bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 2 hours. Or 40 minutes if you are using a pressure cooker.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Put all of the sauce ingredients into the large saucepan along with the ribs and bring to a simmer. Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes. Check occasionally.
  4. To serve, pile the ribs onto a serving plate. Garnish with chopped fresh coriander leaves and chopped fresh red chillis.

Delicious!
