Made For Sharing – Slow Cooked Ribs


These yummy slow cooked ribs are just what you need when cooking for a crowd. Extremely versatile, it can be served with a number of sides. My favourite item to go with this would be thin cut fries and these can be store bought for a quick and easy fix.

  4. Transfer ribs to a baking tray and cook for 2 hours. Halfway through, cover the ribs with foil to avoid it drying out.
