1.5 kg pork spare ribs
½ cup honey (or golden syrup)
½ cup tomato sauce
1 tot apple juice
½ tot soy sauce
½ tot paprika
What to do
Prepare the sauce: Mix all the ingredients (except for the ribs) together in a bowl. If there is anything else you wish to add to the sauce, do so.
Braai the whole spare ribs over medium heat for 30 minutes until almost done.
Remove the ribs from the fire and place on a cutting board. Cut into single ribs.
Toss the ribs into the sauce bowl and coat them well. Use a spoon and/or shake the bowl around. Leave for a minute or three so that the exposed, meaty parts of the ribs can bond with and absorb the sauce.
Braai the now generously basted ribs for between 2 and 10 minutes until all the sauce is warm and glazed. If during the cutting you saw that the ribs are basically done and will start to dry out, just braai them for a minute or two until the sauce is glazed, but if you saw they still have a way to go, make it closer to 10 minutes or even longer, also exposing the two recently cut sides of each rib to heat by letting them face the coals.
Honey adds a unique flavour to this recipe but you could also substitute golden syrup.
