Cola Braised and BBQ Glazed Ribs
Serves 4

Ingredients:
1 Rack of Pork Belly Ribs, 2 Cans of Cola, 8tbsp Tomato Ketchup, 8tbsp Soft Brown Sugar, 2tbsp Worcestershire Sauce, 2tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce, 1tsp Paprika, 2tbsp Sesame Seeds (Toasted)

Method:

1) Preheat your oven to 160c. Place the ribs in a roasting tray and cover with the cola. Cover the roasting tin tightly with kitchen foil and braise for around 2-3 hours or until the ribs are tender.

2) Once braised, transfer the ribs to a clean container to marinade and discard the cooking liquor. Make the marinade by combining the tomato ketchup, soft brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, sweet chilli sauce and paprika in a bowl and mix well. Cover the ribs with the marinade and transfer to the fridge for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight.

3) Before serving, preheat your oven to 220c. Cook the ribs in a shallow baking tray for 30 minutes until golden. Alternatively, grill the ribs on a hot bbq. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.
