A delicious caramelised rib recipe with a fragrant kick

Yields2 Servings
Cook Time1 hr 20 mins
 2 baby back ribs cut in half
 300 ml tomato ketchup
 3cm length ginger, grated
 200 ml soy sauce
 2 tsp rosemary, finely chopped
 2 tsp ground star anise
 5 tbsp runny honey
 4 garlic cloves, grated
 5 tbsp dry sherry (or sake if preferred)
Cooking method

Combine all the ingredients except the ribs in a bowl and whisk until well mixed.


Pour over the ribs and leave in the fridge to marinate overnight.


Place the ribs in a saucepan, pour over the marinade and add just enough water to cover the ribs.


Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for 1 hour covered.


Transfer the ribs to a hot BBQ and grill.


Reduce the sauce in a wok and every 2 minutes or so brush the ribs with the reduced BBQ sauce.


Continue cooking until ribs are nicely caramelized and completely covered in the BBQ sauce.
