  1. Pick your herbs wisely – oregano is an American favourite, and add hot paprika along with other seasonings to taste, plus just a teaspoon of sugar.

  2. Coat pork ribs with this dry mixture and allow them to sit for a few hours (in a fridge rather than left out in a warm kitchen).

  3. To make the glaze, get a tin of chopped tomatoes, passata or (if you like a very rich glaze) ketchup, mix with a soft brown sugar, and other seasoning to taste – crushed garlic, more herbs, a dash of Tabasco or a vinegar like cider vinegar, or possibly a couple of sloshes of soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce.

  4. Mix in a bowl and allow to sit and infuse.

  5. When you’re ready, make sure you cook the pork ribs thoroughly for a good half an hour, without burning on a direct flame.

  6. Then brush generously with the glaze, cook through and re-glaze as you want.

Great glaze recipe. - I've used for soya 'chicken' pieces. After marinating I put them on kebab sticks with pineapple and peppers.
