Garlic & Golden Syrup Spare Ribs

Revealing my secret recipe for a spare rib marinade! ? Get ready for your barbecue

Let’s call it the Garlic & Golden Syrup Ribs – the key ingredients are loads of garlic (yeah like 4tbsp here), Maggi sauce and golden syrup.

And if time allows, marinate them for at least 48 hours. No jokes – it makes a huge difference. Not only you will have ribs that are packed with big flavours but super tender meat. As the process helps softening the muscle fibers and naturally break down protein.
