Number of serving: 4
1 tbs whole black peppercorns

4 whole garlic cloves

2 bay leaves

cold water, to cover ribs

1/2 cup maple syrup

2 tbs runny honey

1/2 cup bourbon

3 tbs tomato paste

1 tsp cayenne pepper


  • Place the ribs in a big pot with the poaching ingredients and enough cold water to cover the meat comfortably.
  • Bring to the boil and then turn down heat to low, allowing the ribs to simmer gently for about 45 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the glaze ingredients and preheat oven to 200C.
  • Remove the poached ribs from the poaching pot and dip into the glaze, coating the ribs thoroughly on both sides.
  • Place in a single layer on a lined baking dish and bake 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Baste the ribs on both sides with the remaining glaze and return the ribs to the oven for a further 10-15 minutes until the glaze has caramelised.
