  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. In a large bowl, mix together the passata, garlic, soy sauce, honey and Worcestershire sauce.

  2. Add the pork ribs to the bowl and mix well to coat evenly. Lay the ribs and all the sauce into a large, shallow roasting tin. Cover with foil and bake for 35 mins.

  3. Remove foil from tray and bake the ribs for a further 45-60 mins, turning them a couple of times, until sticky and almost all of the sauce has disappeared. To make ahead, cook or half-cook the ribs the night before and keep in the fridge until needed.

Going to cook these today, is it best to leave the ribs whole or chop them into smaller pieces before cooking?

I love this recipe. It is a real hit in our house and so so easy to make. Have a go, this one is worth it!

I cooked these for a little longer than stated to allow more of the sauce to dissipate/soak into the ribs. The result was great and was well received by everyone. As someone else said they are not too sticky but are highly recommended.
