Peanut Butter BBQ Ribs Sauce

  • Ingredients

    For Brine:
    2 litres water
    250 ml rice vinegar
    4 tablespoons soy sauce
    4 tablespoons caster sugar
    4 tablespoons salt, 2 teaspoons Chinese Five Spice
    2 racks pork back ribs, about 1kg each

    For Sauce:
    4 tablespoons ketchup
    3 teaspoons soy sauce
    3 teaspoons SKIPPY® Smooth Peanut Butter
    2 teaspoons rice vinegar
    2 teaspoons honey
    1 teaspoon Chinese chilli sauce

    For Garnish:
    Thinly sliced spring onion
    Crushed unsalted peanuts
  • Instruction

    1. Brine: Combine the water, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, salt and Chinese five spice in a large saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook for 5 minutes or until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Remove from the heat and cool completely.
    2. Place the ribs in a resealable plastic bag and fill with the brine. Refrigerate, turning occasionally for 6 hours or overnight. Remove the ribs from the brine; discard the excess brine.
    3. Sauce: Whisk the ketchup with the soy sauce, peanut butter, rice vinegar, honey and chilli sauce; set aside.
    4. Preheat the oven to 165°C. Arrange the ribs on a baking tray fitted with a cooking rack; cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour; remove the foil. Bake, basting with the peanut sauce every 30 minutes, for 2 hours or until the bones move easily within the meat. Cut into 3-bone portions and arrange on a serving platter. Sprinkle the spring onion and peanuts over the ribs.
    Tip: Double the sauce recipe and save half to serve with the cooked ribs for dipping.
