Serving: 2
Prep Time 3 hours 15 minutes
Cook Time 5 hours
Total Time 8 hours 15 minutes


  • 1/4 Cup of Ketchup
  • 2 Tbspns Water
  • 2 Tbspns Worchestshire Sauce
  • 1/2 Tspn Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Tspn Onion Salt
  • 2 Tbspns Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbspns Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • 1 Tbspn Paprika (if you want smokey flavour use Smoked)
  • 1/2 Tbspn Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tbspn Olive Oil
  • 500g Pork Ribs


  • Pour oil in to slow cooker and use a pastry brush to wipe it over the bottom and a little up the sides.
  • Add all other ingredients EXCEPT RIBS into the slow cooker and stir thoroughly. 
  • Cook on low for an hour with tea towel under lid. 
  • Stir every 15mins.
  • Put into an uncovered container/bowl to cool in fridge.
  • Once cooled (approx 2hrs) grab a large zip lock bag, pour cooled sauce in and then pop ribs (or meat of choice) into bag and marinate overnight.
  • When ready to cook I adds ribs to slow cooker on a ball of foil to raise a little from base (keep zip lock bag with remaining marinade to the side) . 
  • Cook for either 2.5hrs on High or 5hrs on Low. 
  • Approx half way through cooking pour remaining marinade over ribs and keep cooking for the remainder of cooking time.
  • I serve with a side salad or wedges depending on what we feel like ?


  • This is just for hubby and I, so for more than 2 people just double the recipe. 
  • You can store in fridge for about 4-5 days or even freeze for later.
  • Omit cayenne pepper for a child friendly non spicy option

  1. Great, tried this recipe last night, awesome, sauce is so easy to make, had a nice little pepper/hot after taste, ribs cooked very well, using this method. I doubled the recipe as I had more ribs, and had about a cup full of sauce/marinade left over so I did chicken wing/nibbles in the same manner and had for lunch the next day! I would attach photo if I could. Thanks for sharing!
