This easy and sweet-sour marinade comes from a South African blogger, Lotta Madness, who wrote about her trip back home and the barbeque, or braai, that her family had at Christmastime. I love reading her blog for the gorgeous African pictures and her take on South African culture. Fun reading! I'd love to take a trip to Africa.
We didn't have the South African brand of peach chutney that she used, Mrs. Ball's, so we used an Indian sweet mango chutney. Up above, the ribs have just come out of the oven and are ready to crisp a little on the grill. I could eat this BBQ sauce with a spoon.
Maybe I did. I'm not telling.
Ingredients1/2 cup ketchup
2/3 cup mango or peach chutney
1 cup Coca Cola
1 (1 oz) packet brown onion soup powder or 2 tbsp beef bouillon granules
2.5 lbs pork ribs (we used country-style ribs, since they have a lot of meat and less bone)
DirectionsPreheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Stir together the ketchup, chutney, cola, and onion soup powder. Place the ribs in a pan with a lid and pour half of the chutney sauce over the ribs. Turn to coat the ribs. Place in the oven and cook for 1 hour.
Preheat the grill to medium heat. Place the ribs on the grill and cook for 15 minutes longer, turning once and brushing on the rest of the chutney sauce every 5 minutes. Pass any leftover sauce with the grilled ribs.
