Sticky beef ribs in a BBQ steak sauce marinade.
Sure to please. Great for parties and entertaining πŸ™‚

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 6 hrs

1 - 2kg of beef spare ribs (the really meaty kind of rib on wide flat bones)

2/3 of a cup of your favourite Steak sauce (I like Fountain brand)

1 tablespoon of minced garlic

1 teaspoon of smoked paprika

2 tablespoons of yellow mustard

2 tablespoons of brown sugar


1Place raw ribs into slow cooker

2Combine all other ingredients to make the marinade

3Reserve 1/2 cup of this marinade for later, pour the remaining marinade over the ribs

4Cook on auto for 6hrs ... or low for 8hrs

5Carefully transfer the super tender cooked ribs to an oven tray and baste with reserved marinade

6Cook under a hot griller for approx 10mins until browned and glazed with the sticky sauce (watch it doesn't burn!)

One of the best slow cooked dishes we have had! A household favourite!!! and a restaurant quality meal !!!! We serve ours with mash, beans, bread rolls and lots of sauce dripped over the mash!!

This was my first time ever cooking ribs and they were absolutely amazing! The meat literally fell off the bone. This will be a favorite in my house!

These sticky ribs were amazing, a must to try. I used American Smokey barbecue sauce ( think it’s masterfood) for the sauce, garlic, dark brown sugar and some Kepis manis, slow cooked on high six hrs and then 10 mins in the oven with more sauce poured over then, cooked to perfection.

It was absolutely delicious. I didn’t alter the recipe this time around, but I honestly don’t think it needs it!!

Found this recipe in the new S/C Central Book for Kids, so, a nice easy one for Master Ten to make. He marinated them overnight and cooked for the 8 hours. Delicious, served with chunky oven chips and coleslaw. They got an 8.5/10 from the family. Declared to be much easier (read ‘less messy) to eat than the pork ribs (another fav in our house!)

Delicious. As I only had a small 700g rack of pork ribs & was time restricted, cut into thirds, quickly marinated & cooked in 1.5 litre baby SC. 3 hours was plenty & finished under the grill. (Next time I will marinate over night for more flavour). Served with chips & coleslaw.

We loved this! But it’s very rare we can get spare ribs in our supermarket. What else would work if anything? 😊

Definitely delicious the meat was so tender and the marinade was perfect..only thing I did different was use wholegrain mustard
Amazing meal as always!
(And I’m not afraid to admit I pinched some meat off the ribs when they were nearly done in the cooker because the smell was to much to resist πŸ™Š)
