Marmite BBQ Spare Ribs

Posted on

This tender, slow-cooked ribs simply fall-off-the-bone and melt in the mouth delish!!! I resorted to making my own BBQ sauce after failing to find a good bottle searching through several stores …hence the emergence of Marmite BBQ Spare Ribs 😉


Ingredients needed for my Marmite BBQ Sauce ….from top, left to right, clockwise … ¼ cup dark muscovado sugar;  ½ cup tomato ketchup; ¼ vinegar (I used ginger infused vinegar); 1 Tbsp smoked paprika; 2 Tbsp Marmite; 2 Tbsp English Mustard; 3 cloves chopped garlic (not shown here) ….


…and 2 Tbsp Sweet Plum Sauce …


…mix all the sauce ingredients together and bring to a boil and slightly thickened …. off flame and set aside


This step is optional but I prefer to do this …I parboil the ribs (I’d sliced the whole long slab of ribs into 2 pieces as seen here) for about 15 mins …drain and pat dry with some kitchen paper towels


Brush the par-boiled ribs with some of the Marmite BBQ Sauce and marinade for 4 hours in the refrigerator


Preheat oven to 150°C ….wrap dish tightly with foil and cook int he pre-heated oven for 2½ hours until tender …


…2 hours after cooking, remove the foil …


…brush the ribs with some of the remainder of the Marmite BBQ Sauce …raise heat of oven to 200°C and continue cooking the ribs …


…turn the ribs every 5-8 mins and continue to brush on the rest of the Marmite BBQ Sauce with each turn and continue to cook until ribs is sticky and caramelised


We prefer the ribs not to be too dry but to have a thick layer of the sticky Marmite BBQ sauce on it …. finger-licking, lip smacking delectable!!! I served up with my Chopped Cauliflower & Broccoli Quinoa Salad 😉
