Sticky BBQ Ribs a la Donna Hay

Sticky BBQ Ribs a la Donna Hay
From Donna Hay Magazine Summer, Issue 31

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 40-45 minutes

Serves 4

For rub & ribs:

4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp sweet hot paprika (I love Szeged)
4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
4 tbsp olive oil
Sea salt & freshly ground pepper
2 slabs (2 lb/1 kg each) pork baby back ribs


1. In a small bowl combine all the ingredients for the rub (except the ribs).

2. Cut the ribs into pieces with 4-5 ribs per piece (it’s just a little faster to cook). Rub both sides of the ribs with the rub (You could prepare it the day before and refrigerate it before cooking. Just remember to bring the ribs to room temperature before cooking them – at least 30 minutes).

3. Preheat the oven to 350ºF/180ºC. Line 2 rimmed baking trays with foil and place a rack on top. Spread the ribs out in one layer evenly between the 2 trays. Bake for 40-45 minutes, basting with the sauce once the ribs are done.

4. Turn the broiler on for just a few minutes to caramelize the “sauce”. It makes the ribs really sticky.

My daughter said she’d love to have some sauce at the table, so if that’s the way you like things in your house, double the rub recipe and serve some as a sauce.

I served them with roasted potato & sweet potato wedges and steamed peas & zucchini.
