Colette’s Famous 24 Hour Ribs

Posted on: March 7, 2011

This recipe requires some love and attention, not hard work, just your time and attention. In London we have a slow food movement going on and this recipe would apply! It is said that the food that is prepared slowly is better for one’s health simply because of the love and attention that is put into it and the ingredients are fresh and local! Give them a try, your family will be glad you did! I know we sure were glad she made them for us!

 Here’s what you need :

First, start with some good quality baby back ribs, then 24 hours before serving the ribs you need to rub the ribs with the following ingredients:

Dry Rub

  • Paprika
  • garlic powder
  • smoked chipotle pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • cumin
  • Cayenne if you want them spicy, if not then omit)

Mix the dry ingredients together and then rub all over the ribs. you may drizzle a bit of maple syrup over the ribs a bit too. Place  4-5 garlic cloves  and ribs on cookie trays .  Cover loosely with foil and then refrigerate for 24 hours at least. If doing spicy ribs, you may sprinkle with hot sauce instead of maple syrup…just a bit for mild or more for spicier!

Step 2

Roast in oven now at 325 for 1/2 hour, then reduce heat to 250 degrees. Roast for another 4 hours then for the last hour shut off oven and let them sit in the oven.

Step 3

Colette’s BBQ Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup of cider vinegar
  • 1/2 can of tomato paste (3 oz needed)
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/8 cup of soya sauce
  • 4 tbsp of mucky duck mustard or a honey mustard (dijon if doing spicy)

Stir all ingredients together till smooth. Sauce the ribs.

Final and Important Step

BBQ the ribs on a hot grill for 5-10 minutes per side. Serve with lots of napkins and enjoy!!
