- 1 Shallot finely diced
- 1 Tbs Hot sauce
- Pinch Smoked Salt
- 2 Cloves of Garlic Crushed
- 2 Cans Cola
- 3 Tbs Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 1/2 Cup tomato sauce
- 1 Jar apricot jam (small)
- 2 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
- Dash liquid Smoke
- Pepper to taste
Boil the spare ribs for 40 minutes in salted water.
While you are boiling the ribs, combine all the other ingredients in another big pot and bring to the boil and simmer. Keep stirring the sauce every now and again so that it does not burn at the bottom of the pot.
After 40 minutes, remove the ribs from the water and add to the Coca Cola Mix. Boil the ribs in this sauce for a further 40 minutes and then remove ribs from the pot and allow to cool in a meat tray.
Simmer the remaining sauce until it reduces to a consistency that will stick to the back of a spoon. This can take quite a while so be patient.
Heat the oven (200 C) and put the ribs on a baking tray.
Poor the marinade over the ribs and grill them for about 10 minutes each side.
Baste the ribs every now and them with the marinade in the baking tray.
Serve with leftover sauce and lots of napkins.
