Melt in the mouth sticky ribs are best cooked on the barbecue, thus leaving all the mess outside. There are hundreds of rib recipes, but I like this one as it has just a few ingredients and the whole family will enjoy its simplicity. Add a few extra chilli flakes if you like to spice it up a little. Cooking the sheets of ribs as a whole will ensure they remain juicy. A fresh salad and, maybe, some corn cobs and rice will complete a very simple meal.
- In a small bowl place the hoisin, paprika, chilli, vinegar and salt. Mix. Place the ribs in a large dish and pour the marinade over. Mix, cover and refrigerate until needed.
- Set a barbecue to a medium heat. Cook the sheet of pork ribs, brushing with extra marinade as they cook for 15 minutes each side or until cooked through. Use a small knife to cut into the flesh to check they are cooked.
- Cut into serving sizes, and enjoy with rice and a green salad.
