BBQ Ribs Dr Pepper Style
Recipe from: Olive Magazine
We had to try this one when we saw it. Take it from us, it tastes fantastic!
The caramel and spice flavours of the fizzy Dr Pepper drink add an extra dimension to sticky ribs. A great twist to a BBQ to add a bit of fun. You can cook this either in the oven or in the oven then finish on the BBQ.
1) Heat the oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Put the ribs, fleshy side down, in a single layer in a large roasting tin. Pour over the Dr Pepper and add the spices. Tightly cover with foil and cook for 2 hours. (If you're finishing these on the BBQ, ensure you light it long enough in advance of cooking to get it nice and hot)
2) Put all the glaze ingredients in a pan and simmer gently for 10 mins until thick and syrupy.
3) After the initial cooking take the ribs from the oven and turn it up to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6, or prepare your barbecue. Drain all the liquid from the tin. Turn the ribs flesh side up and baste with the glaze.
4) Roast for 30 minutes or barbecue, adding more glaze halfway through until sticky and shiny. Cut into sections to serve.
