Recipes STICKY, SPICY BOURBON BBQ RIBS

STICKY, SPICY BOURBON BBQ RIBS

Prep 20 mins
Cooking 40 mins
Serves 4

Celebrate our month of spring and all things braai with these sticky, sweet and spicy Bourbon ribs. Now, normally we would turn to pork ribs for the braai, but why not ask your butcher to specially cut you some beef ribs, spare-rib style? It’s just a bit unusual, and goes so well with our spicy Bourbon basting sauce. 

- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -

  • 1 heaped Tbsp CHIPOTLE CHILLI
  • 2 Tbsp Bourbon
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp tomato sauce
  • 2 Tbsp runny honey
  • 1 fat clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon
  • large handful of coriander, finely chopped
  • 1kg beef ribs (or pork ribs)
  • extra olive oil

- METHOD -

Combine the Cape Herb & Spice Chipotle Chilli Seasoning  with all the other ingredients (except the coriander and ribs) in a small saucepan and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and stir in the coriander. Set aside. Rub ribs with a drizzle of olive oil. Place ribs in the middle of a kettle braai grid (indirect cooking method – i.e. with coals in baskets on either side of the grid). Place on kettle braai lid and cook ribs until done. Spoon Bourbon basting sauce over ribs and braai for another 5 - 10 minutes. The sugar content of the sauce will catch and give you marvelously sticky, slightly charred ribs, perfect for lunch or dinner.
