  • 40g Dijon mustard

  • 8g smoked paprika
  • 8g garlic powder
  • 8g onion powder

    Method: Pork
  2. Preheat oven to 130°C. Pat ribs dry and trim excess fat. Season on both sides.
  3. Heat a little oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown ribs, in batches for 1-2 minutes each side until they develop a deep crust.
  4. Generously brush barbecue sauce all over ribs, then wrap each rack tightly in foil. Place on baking trays and bake for 2½-3 hour or until meat is tender and easily pulls away from the bone.

    To serve:
  5. Remove racks from foil and brown on the grill over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes, turning once, for a smoky flavour. Brush again with extra barbecue sauce and serve alongside coleslaw, baked beans, or cornbread.
