Recipe and styling by Sydney Food Stylist Jane Collins 

I usually cook these in the oven the day before and finish them off on the grill. These ribs are amazing, even my fussy (and single column list of foods )children eat these!

These are rich in chilli flavour, tone down the chilli content to your liking.  I usually end up  making a big batch of the dry mix , and keep it sealed in a clean dry  air tight container … I promise you  will be  tempted to use this rub on other meats as well, it livens up any chicken breast. Keep it in a dry cool place and you can save time on the mix and measuring of the dry ingredients.

These take a bit of time in the oven, so its usually a weekend item on the menu. You can cook them the night before, or on the day of the party / or bbq and just heat them up on the bbq Grill  basting with the bbq sauce.

Oh and while you are at it , make a big batch of that BBQ sauce as well…

These are the beef version, but I also make these as pork American style ribs as well.
