  • Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
  • Brush the ribs with the marinate and transfer the marinated ribs into a ziplock bag.
  • Remove most of the air from the bag, seal and place in the refrigerator overnight.

  • When ready to cook, preheat your oven to 140℃.
  • Remove the ribs from their plastic covers. Wrap the ribs in baking paper, making sure to seal the edges to form an airtight cover.

  • When the oven is to temperature, place the parcels on a baking sheet and into the pre-heated oven. Cook for 3 hours.
  • After three hours remove the ribs from the foil and paper.
  • Let them rest for 15 minutes.
  • Baste the ribs with ginger ketchup – See RECIPE
  • Transfer to a baking sheet and switch the oven to grill.

    Very unusual recipe and definetley some food for thought.

  2. Another good recipe! However, you could easily omit both soy sauce and salt and add more ground peppercorns and even a TB more of brown sugar. My mouth is watering already. Thanks!
