Unless you have two hours to slow cook your ribs in the oven before you start barbequing, pressure-cooking is the only way to go. It makes the ribs fall off the bone tender and when basted with the sweet chilli and honey marinate of this recipe - they become simply outstanding. Serve with a simple green salad and you’re away
  • Baby back pork ribs – 3 pounds (1.3 kilograms)
  • Bay leaves – 3 dried
For the marinade
  • Tomato ketchup – 2 cups
  • Garlic -3 cloves (finely sliced)
  • Honey – ½ cup
  • Vinegar – 2 tablespoons
  • Thai sweet chili sauce – ½ cup
  • Tabasco sauce – 4 tablespoons
  • Worcester sauce – 2 tablespoons
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Mix together all the ingredients for the marinade and mix in the blender until a smooth paste. Place in the refrigerator
  2. Prepare the barbeque (using briquettes if possible) and light
  3. Place the ribs in a pressure cooker and add water just to cover. Add bay leaves
  4. Allow meat to pressure cook for 20 minutes. Remove from pot and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Remove bay leaves.
