1 1/2 lb spare ribs
4oz dark brown sugar
5 tablespoons tomato ketchup
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1 teaspoon ginger
Put ribs in pan
Chuck in everything else
Pour over 1 pint water
Bring to boil and cook for 45 mins half covered with led
Remove lid and boil for 20 mins till ribs coated in thick glaze.
You can easily double/ treble/quadruple the ingredients (though if you do so go easy on the water).
This recipe is always VERY popular at bbqs.
We start with half a strip of streaky bacon wrapped around a quarter of a banana and kept in place with a metal skewer. Cook until the bacon is crispy and the banana squishy and it is GORGEOUS!
Are you actually going to be doing the cooking yourself? It might be worth roping in at least a couple of people to help you otherwise you might feel you are missing out on the party. Your food sounds gorgeous - have a few salads on hand, and some scrummy dips, and it will be brilliant.
Ooh back onto the banana thing - another nice banana pudding is to slice a banana lengthwise and slotting as many pieces of plain chocolate into the opening as you can. Wrap the banana in foil then bake for a while until the banana is soft - serve with cream or icecream - delicious!
Enjoy your day - I hope the weather is good for you.
I am sure family and friends who are bbq experts could take over for you and let you enjoy a stress free wedding day.
Having your reception at home is also much more rewarding and personal and I am sure that everyone will muck in and help to make it a wonderful day.
Congratulations....and I hope the sun shines.
The only thing that I will be doing is on the Friday b4.I'll be making the burgers & shami kebabs,coleslaw,marinading the chicken & pork for the skewers,washing all the salad,making the rice & pasta salads,prepping the potatoes for the potato salad & part cooking the sausages.Our house on the Friday will be full of my very kind friends & family hrlping out.On the actual day 2 of our friends will be actually bbq'ing.Another friend is doing all the sweets and my mum will be adding touches only a mother can.
So as you can see it's a real family affair & I can concentrate on the guests & getting merry. But not too merry as we fly on holiday in the early hours.
I have to say I was really nervous about the whole day,where to have the reception so on,but since we decided to use our own home neither of us can wait.You're right about the intimacy of it all and knowing that the people we cherish have all mucked in it's even more special.....I can't wait..
