This is a recipe my mother was given in the 1950's by a Canadian friend and remains my favourite easy supper dish. I serve with plain rice and petit pois.


Serves: 4

  • pork spare ribs (this recipe will make enough sauce for 4, so choose enough ribs to accommodate)
  • ½ tomato juice
  • 2 tablespoons soft brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dry English mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 chopped onion

  • Heat oven to 150 degrees c - roast ribs in a covered oven proof dish for about 45 minutes - drain off fat.
  • Mix the sugar and mustard powder with the Worcestershire sauce and add the tomato juice - stir well.
  • Add the sauce to the ribs with the chopped raw onion. Return to the oven in the covered dish (turn heat up to 180 degrees c) for about an hour.
  • Spoon the sauce over the ribs occasionally. Take off the lid and continue to cook for about 15-20 mins.
  • Tell us what you think
