Method

  1. Put 4 tbsp of barbecue sauce along with the rest of the ingredients into your slow cooker. Top up with enough water to cover (roughly 1.5l). Slow cook on Low for 8 - 9 hours until very tender but not completely falling off the bone.
  2. Heat the oven to 220C/ 200C fan/ gas mark 7. Remove the ribs from the slow cooker using a slotted spoon or tongs. Handle them carefully as the meat will be very tender and may start to fall off. Baste with the remaining barbecue sauce and lay on a foil-lined oven tray. Cook for 20 – 30 mins until starting to crisp on outside. Alternatively, cook on the barbecue, turning from time to time until piping hot throughout.

We all really enjoyed these - didnt use the coriander as we didn't have any, and for the sauce we used Asda's Texas fruity BBQ marinade!!! They were very tasty and will definitely be making them again :) x

This recipe just confirms my hatred for slow cookers, I cooked the ribs for 4 hours on slow them I BBQ them, the pork was very tender but tasteless, however my husband and younger son loved them, my daughter and eldest son agreed with my views....your cant please them all!
