Recipe by Jewelies

First cooked in the oven and then on the BBQ.

Top Review by I'mPat

Went for the oven cook and after 20 minutes took them out and put on a baking tray and cranked up to 200 (fan forced) for 10 minutes and they were just oh so good. If doing the oven cook method take them out of the marinade and cook on baking tray, I think then that the 20 minutes would be accurate but then I would simmer the sauce in a small sauce pan to spoon over the ribs, rice and veg. A little too salty for personal taste but expected being soy sauce based but the DM absolutely devoured them. Will like to try again with pork loin chops and on the barbie (with DH cooking). Thank you Jewelies, made for Edition 5 - Make My Recipe - a game of tag.
