    This is a great way to cook ribs, get the flavour into them and soft inside, and then transfer to the BBQ to get the saucy, smoky outdoor flavour.

    Serves: 8 

    • Ribs
    • 3kg pork spare ribs
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
    • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

    Very tasty! I wish I would have thought of putting spice in the water while boiling ribs years ago! I cut the recipe in half and it was perfect!  -  10 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The sauce was excellent! To make my ribs more tender, I didn't boil them, I wrapped the ribs in foil sprayed lighty with "pam" and baked at 275-300F (depending on oven) for 3 1/2-4 hrs and then brushed the sauce on ribs broiling in oven (watching). Repeated this step 4 times. These ribs fell right off the bone. I sprinkled salt/pepper and garlic spice on ribs before wrapped in foil.  -  07 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was excellent! My family raved about them. Definitely a keeper.  -  28 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
