No one can resist sticky and sweet ribs on the braai.


  • 2.25 kg pork spareribs, (look for pre-cooked braai ribs)
  • 3 cups (750 ml) braai sauce
  • For the braai sauce
  • 1 1⁄2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2⁄3 cup Sunflower Oil
  • 1⁄3 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1⁄2 cup soft brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons mild yellow mustard
  • juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1–2 fresh red chillies, finely chopped


Step 1

Preparation for braai sauce: Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and mix to combine. Bring to a boil over medium heat; immediately reduce the heat to low, then cover and simmer until the sugar has completely dissolved and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 20 minutes.

Step 2

Preparation for braai spareribs: Place the ribs in a large self-sealing bag, glass baking dish or non- metallic bowl.

Step 3

Pour 2 cups (500 ml) of the braai sauce over the ribs and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Step 4

On a covered kettle-style braai add the ribs (if not pre-cooked) and cook for 1 to 1.5 hours, basting frequently with the marinating sauce. If they are pre-cooked ribs, baste frequently and keep turning till well cooked and browned on both sides.

Step 5

In a small saucepan, warm the remaining braai sauce over low heat and serve on the side with the ribs.
