This is a long time favourite of mine.
Pork spare ribs (1lb or enough for two)
3tbsp soft brown sugar
2tbsp tomato ketchup
1tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2tbsp white or red wine vinegar
Preheat oven to 200c/180c(fan) gas 6
Put all sauce ingredients in a pan and heat, whisk to mix the mustard in as the sugar dissolves.
Brush the ribs with sauce and place in oven proof dish, and pour the remainder of the sauce over them before putting in the oven.
Cook uncovered for an hour or so. Then turn the oven right down to 50 and cook for another half hour.
Take the ribs out and put on a plate. Pour any remaining sauce back in the pan, and boil rapidly to reduce to a sticky syrup, and pour back over the ribs to serve.
Goes great with baked potato and barbecue bacon beans. (dice 2 slice bacon, 1/2 small onion and fry till crispy. Add a tin of baked beans, half a teaspoon of smoked paprika and a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce. Mix, heat, pour over potato and cover with cheese if you’re feeling really luxurious.)
