We’ve served it with a homemade barbecue sauce, which is easy to make and far superior to anything you can buy in a bottle! We’ve sprinkled over steak seasoning before cooking our rack of ribs. This seasoning mix is a blend of dried onion, garlic, mustard seed, coriander, chilli powder and bay, and is available in most supermarkets. Ask your butcher to prepare the rack of ribs by splitting the racks into separate ribs, and cutting in half for the perfect size. Our rack of ribs with chilli sauce is best enjoyed when eaten with your hands, so get the napkins ready.
