Pineapple and Plum marinated BBQ Spare Ribs

Yes guys, BBQ season has fully descended upon us, and any excuse to drag out the grill pan from the shed and spark it up has come. BBQ spare ribs has been an all time favourite of mine, on this occasion I decided to do something different and make a marinade with pineapple and plum. Sweetest, finger licking good, ribs ever!

I made my ribs in the oven, but I know they'd taste even more amazing over a BBQ. Serve them with Herby Skin on Sweet Potato Wedges


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35-40 minutes

Serve: 3-4

(depending on your love for ribs)



Pack of pork or lamb spare ribs

1/4 Pineapple 

1 Plum 


BBQ Sauce

Mixed Herbs


Fresh Parsley  

Garlic Powder


1/2 Red Onion

Black Pepper 

Cayenne Pepper

All Purpose Seasoning



First rinse off meat thoroughly and rub down with and squeeze half a lemon.

Add red onion, pineapple and plum into blender adding a few drops of water to break down ingredients. Blend till completely smooth.

Season meat with parsley, all purpose season, cayenne pepper, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, bbq sauce and honey to taste. 

Pour blended contents from the blender and rub into ribs thoroughly.

Set aside for 10 minutes whilst you turn on and pre-heat the oven. 

Place ribs into a baking tray, any residue marinade, gently brush back onto meat.

Pop into the oven for 15/20 minutes. After, take out, turn over the meat and brush with marinade again making sure all parts of the meat is fully seasoned.

After 35-40 minutes, your ribs should be cooked and ready to get stuck into.
