Method

  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.

Followed the recipe and they turned out perfectly sticky and tasty, really surprised at how quickly the sauce reduced down! I personally prefer the 'stickiest-ever BBQ ribs with chive dip' recipe but this is good as a quick recipe.

This recipe was a success, the ribs were so tender, delicious. I thought the sauce was ok, I prefer making my barbeque sauce with plum conserve as the base, much sweeter and very sticky. And just like others have said "too much passata". Just have to tweek the sauce to suit my palate.

The best ribs we've ever had - my 3 children couldn't get enough (and they are pretty fussy,) However I read the really useful comments and then did the following: 2 kg pork ribs (from Tesco meat counter - loads of meat on them) Boiled them in water for 30 mins Mix together 1 tin of tomatoes(I puréed them as I had no passata) 3 tbsp Worcester sauce 3 tbsp soy sauce (rich,dark) About 5 tbsp honey Big squeeze of Heinz BBQ smoky barbecue sauce After boiling, place the ribs in the sauce in a big oven proof dish and coat. Cover with foil and bake at 190 C for 30'mins. We browned them off on the BBQ but wouldn't be necessary - loads of sauce and the meat just fell off the bone....mmmmmm.

Final comment would be that I just made these with half the passata that they recommend. My mistake was to split the ribs into 2 loads as they charred. They were still delicious but were burnt. If you half the passata you must rely on it to stop the ribs burning as they provide a liquid barrier against the heat. I would recommend halfing the passata and adding some paprika and chinese 5 spice and extra honey though, this recipe is juvenile in my opinion and without much effort

I wish I had read the comments before starting this, the amount of passata seems ridiculous, how is a small amount of soy going to flavour it? The only thing I can hope is that the long cooking time will reduce the sauce quite a bit. I ended up putting half the sauce to one side after seeing what I had created and adding more honey to one of the halves. I also added paprika based on a comment below and some chinese 5 spice. Chinese 5 spice and ribs are a match made in heaven IMO

Pretty good recipe, but I thought it was missing something, and I've discovered what it was! I use less passata (about 250 gms) and about a half teaspoon of hot smoked paprika....it really lifts it!
