Glazed Barbecued Ribs

Cooking time: 25-30 minutes

for the ribs

1 x 6-8 pork loin rack of ribs, about 500g (1lb2oz)

1 sprig fresh rosemary

1 large sprig fresh thyme

1 large garlic clove, unpeeled

for the glaze

1 tbsp Lyle’s Golden Syrup

2 tbsp tomato ketchup

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 rounded tbsp Tate & Lyle Fairtrade Dark Soft Brown Cane Sugar

Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°, 400°F, Gas 6.

Place the ribs in a large saucepan and cover with boiling water. Add the rosemary, thyme and garlic clove and bring to the boil. Boil for 10 minutes, then drain and discard the water, herbs and garlic.

For the glaze, place the Lyle’s Golden Syrup, ketchup, soy sauce and sugar in a small pan and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until reduced and sticky.

Put the blanched ribs on a baking tray and brush all over with the glaze. Place on the middle shelf of the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the pork is completely cooked through and nicely sticky.

Transfer the ribs to a chopping board, slice into ribs and serve.
