Recipe's preparation

  1. Line two large, deep-sided baking trays with baking paper and set aside.

  2. Place all ingredients, except spare ribs and garnish, into mixing bowl and cook 25 min/Varoma/speed 2, placing simmering basket instead of measuring cup onto mixing bowl lid. Strain sauce through simmering basket and set sauce aside.

  3. Preheat oven to 180°C.

  4. Lay ribs out in a single layer into prepared baking trays and pour reserved sauce over the top. Coat ribs well, then set aside to marinate for 20 minutes. Turn ribs over and allow to marinate for a further 20 minutes. Cover baking trays with aluminium foil and cook (180°C) for 1 hr 15 minutes.

  5. Remove foil and continue to cook (180°C) for 20-25 minutes, or until marinade is sticky and golden brown. Place ribs onto a serving platter, pour sauce from pan on top and garnish with chilli and coriander. Serve warm.

Tip

For saucier ribs, reduce quantity of ribs to 1.5 kg and proceed as per recipe.

Perfect finger food to serve while watching your favourite sport with a light ale or lager with fruit undertones to complement the aromatic apple flavour.

You can serve sticky apple ribs as a main meal for four by serving with a side of coconut rice and a crunchy Asian salad.

  • Loved this marinade however

    Loved this marinade however like others have posted, i found that it reduced quite a lot whilst cooking in the Thermomix. This was fine as i was only cooking for 2 people however you might need to double the recipe for a family. I also made the marinade in the morning prior to going to work and placed it over the ribs in the fridge for the day before cooking it for dinner when i arrived home. There appeared to be no issues with this.

    I used a quarter of the amount of ingredients as I'm cooking for just two people. The smell that filled the kitchen was great   tmrc_emoticons.)

  • This was yummy but I found it

    Submitted by jodi222 on 2. October 2013 - 18:53.

    This was yummy but I found it was nowhere near enough marinade to properly cover the ribs, and I followed the recipe exactly, and used even less ribs (only 1.2kg) and it was still not enough.  Otherwise nice.
