We've added some zing to one of our favourite meals with our Truffle Hot Sauce Marinated Ribs recipe. This is so easy to prepare and can either be done on the BBQ or slow-cooked and roasted in the oven.
Hot Sauce Marinated Ribs Ingredients:
1.5 kg ribs - port, beef or lamb - it's your choice.
100ml Smoke & Pepper BBQ Sauce
50 ml Truffle Hot Sauce
50 ml soy sauce
50 ml Worcestershire sauce
50 ml apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
In a bowl, whisk together the bbq sauce, hot sauce, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, minced garlic, smoked paprika, ground cumin, onion powder, salt, and pepper to make the marinade.
Place the ribs in a large, resealable plastic bag or a glass dish. Pour the marinade over the ribs, ensuring they are well coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight for maximum flavour.
Preheat your bbq grill or oven to medium heat.
If using the bbq: Lightly oil the bbq. Remove the ribs from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off. Reserve the marinade for basting.
Place the ribs on the bbq plate and cook for about 30-40 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with the reserved marinade, until they are cooked through and nicely browned.
To slow roast in the oven: Place ribs in a covered dish or baking tray into a preheated oven. We recommend 160 degrees for 2 hours, but you can adjust this to suit your tastes and your oven.
Once cooked, remove the ribs from the heat and let them rest for a few minutes. This will help the juices redistribute and make the ribs more tender.
Serve the Hot Sauce Marinated Ribs as a main dish with sides like coleslaw, salads, or roasted vegetables.
