I only started to eat ribs about a year and a half ago when I went to France and had some delicious BBQ ribs.  I thought they would be difficult to cook at home since I don't have a BBQ, but no, I was wrong! You'll see from the recipe that it takes quite a while for these ribs to be ready but trust me, its totally worth spending that extra bit of time as they fall off the bone and the meat melts in your mouth.  And you'll see that it doesn't actually involve you doing a lot..bonus!

You don't need a lot of ingredients to make these ribs.  You would need a few more if you were to prepare your own marinade but I'll tackle that in another post.  For today I am cheating and using a ready made BBQ marinade (Paul Newman).

For the ribs you will need:
  • A pack of pork ribs
  • 300ml boiling water
  • BBQ marinade (either your own or a ready prepared one)
  • Salt and Pepper
 Pre-heat your oven to 130 degrees or gas mark 3.  Put your ribs into a deep baking tray or casserole dish and add 300 ml of boiling water.  Cover the dish with tin foil and leave in the oven to cook for 2 hours (I told you it took a while).

After 2 hours take the ribs out of the oven, drain off the water that is in the dish, season and cover the ribs in the marinade.  You can either leave it to marinade for a while (this is best done on a weekend when you can cook the ribs earlier in the day for later on that night) or cook them straight away.  You can either cook the ribs under a medium grill for 10-15 minutes (they get nice and caramelised that way..yum) or turn the heat up in your oven to 200 degrees or gas mark 6 and cook for a further 30 minutes.

Serve with some onion rings and some coleslaw.
