Method

 

Place the ribs in a large pot and add the rest of the ingredients and enough water to cover.

Bring to the boil and cook for 30-40 minutes until cooked and the marinade has significantly reduced.

Preheat the oven to 230 C or grill.

Remove the ribs from the pan and place on a wooden board and cut into riblets.

Place in a baking tray and baste with the thickened marinade. Grill in the oven for 5 minutes, on the top rack, keeping a close watch over it, turning them if necessary.

As the marinade has sugar in it, watch them in the oven as they can burn quickly – you can open the oven door slightly to stop from burning.

Remove to a platter and scatter with red chilli flakes and sliced spring onions.
