BBQ Beef Back Ribs

This recipe is suitable for barbeque or oven cooking


3 Beef Back Racks (whole)
3 tsp Salt & Pepper (mixed)
2 cloves Garlic (crushed)
3 tbsp Lemon Juice
3 tbsp Olive Oil ½tsp Chilli Powder

BBQ Glaze
2 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 tbsp Molasses, Honey or Golden Syrup
1 tsp Tabasco

BBQ Beef Back Ribs


First, pat the racks dry with kitchen paper and cut down between the bones, but not all the way through. Rub the salt & pepper all over the racks. Combine the garlic, lemon juice, oil and chilli and brush the mixture over the racks. Cover with foil and leave to marinade in the fridge.

Now prepare the BBQ glaze by combining the Ketchup, Worcestershire Sauce, Honey and Tabasco to taste. Set aside.

Before you cook the racks, allow them to come to room temperature. Barbecue the racks on a gas or charcoal grill over a medium heat for approx. 60-90 minutes. During the last 15-20 minutes, regularly brush the glaze onto the ribs (e.g. every 4 or 5 minutes). Once cooked, remove from the grill and cover with foil. Leave in a warm place to rest for 10-15 minutes before serving.

Chef’s tip: If the weather is too bad for a BBQ, you can cook the ribs in an oven instead. Cook at 180°C/350°F/Gas 4 for 60-75 minutes, and brush the glaze onto the ribs during the last 15-20 minutes as above.

Very Good
This was a good easy BBQ sauce recipe. Contrary to other comments 60 mins was not enough oven time. I shall probably do 90 mins with the next one as we like our ribs falling off the bone when cooked.

great recipe, needed less cooking time
Loved this recipe, very easy to do aswell. I found that a total cooking time of 60 mins in the oven was plenty and the ribs were cooked just right.
