This recipe for pork ribs is a family favourite in the Hagans house.

The kids love it, and Jason and I love the easy of making it.


700g US (American) Pork Ribs

250ml of Stock

A couple of Garlic Cloves – squashed

Handful of Bay leaves



In the summer we use a bench-top slow cooker. This stops the house from heating up from the oven. If using a slow-cooker simply place all ingredients in the base of the cooker, use enough stock to cover the ribs – then we cook for 4-6 hours.


Preheat the oven to 150-170 degrees

1. Place the ribs in a baking dish and cover with the stock. Add the bay leaves and peppercorns.

2. Wrap the dish with a sheet of baking paper then cover with foil. Place in a moderate oven.

3. Cook for 3 or so hours.

4. Remove ribs from the pan and place onto the BBQ or into a hot pan. Cook until the outside start to brown and get a nice golden coating.

5. Serve with veggies or a summer salad.
