We have a recipe here that will delight any meat-eater….



1kg Lamb ribs
100ml Pukara Estate Blackcurrant Balsamic Vinegar
½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
¼ cup Worcester sauce
2 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp Pukara Estate Chilli Smoked Salt Flakes

Mix all ingredients, except the ribs together in a bowl until combined. Using a fork pierce the meat all over. Add to marinade and massage together.

Cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hours or overnight. Remove marinated ribs from the bowl with a little extra marinade, covering exterior of the meat and wrap tightly in foil.  Barbecue on medium heat for 45-60 minutes. Unwrap the ribs and check if cooked through but still juicy. If so, remove from foil, turn the heat up and cook over flames for 5 minutes, just to charcoal.

Allow the ribs to rest for 10 minutes, slice them up and serve immediately.
