  1. Made these for dinner OMG only thing I did different was add 100ml of coke with the sauce and a bit of gravox at the end to thicken thank you they where delish

  2. Have this cooking at the moment, house smells amazing .only thing i did different was marinated over night
    Cant wait for dinner time

  3. First time cooking with beef ribs. This was so easy and tastes great. All plates were cleared. Will definately make again

  4. I’ve just made these and they’re delicious! I halved the sugar too.
    Am wondering if you double the recipe, including the marinade ingredients, how would this affect cooking time? Thanks.

  5. Made this using lamb spare ribs (600g only) and substituted Worcestershire sauce for oyster sauce, and sugar for maple syrup and it was delicious!!! Cooked a lot faster in my 5.7 Ltr SC (4 hrs on low) and didn’t need to thicken the sauce further.

  6. I made these but used Pork spare ribs and only cooked for 5 hours. Was lovely and tender and hubby just loved them.Very tasty. They were a winner .

  7. Yum! Easy and delicious. We’ll be having this again!!! Served with mashed potato, baked pumpkin with honey and rosemary (another recipe on this site!) and baby peas.

  8. 5 stars
    Minimum effort and simple pantry ingredients for maximum taste! ?
    Sublimely delicious fall off the bone ribs, seriously saucy, have served with baked spuds & cauliflower bake or a salad/coleslaw and crunchy rolls ?
    PS I put in air fryer to crisp up ?
