  • Kebabs

  • Lean pork shoulder, collar or leg steaks, cut into cubes
  • Ribs

  • 2 star anise
  • 6 whole black peppercorns
  • Sticky ribs sauce

  • 30ml (2tbsp) plum sauce
  • 15ml (1tbsp) soy sauce
  • 1tbsp sweet chilli




Use either lean pork shoulder, collar or leg steaks and cut into cubes. Thread 3-4 pieces onto long skewers (if wooden pre-soak in water to prevent burning). Don’t squash meat together too much on skewers as it will slow cooking down. Place skewers on preheated BBQ and cook for 12-15 minutes, turning occasionally.



For fall-off-the-bone ribs: Take a large saucepan and fill with water, add 2 star anise and 6 whole black peppercorns, top with a lid and bring to the boil. Add pork spare ribs or half a rack, and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove ribs from pan and discard water. Allow to cool slightly and cook on a pre heated BBQ.


Sticky ribs:
Mix plum sauce, soy sauce and sweet chilli into a large dish. Thoroughly roll the pre-cooked ribs in the sauce until covered. Place on preheated BBQ. Cook slowly or on a low heat until glaze is sticky and golden. Don’t allow to burn.


Green Pepper and Chilli Mojo:
Into a bowl put 1 green pepper and 1 green chilli, deseeded and very finely chopped, 30ml (2tbsp) fresh coriander, chopped, 5ml (1tsp) olive oil, 10ml (2tsp) sweet chilli sauce, ½ lime, juice and stir.


Mango Salsa:
Mix together 425g canned mango, drained and chopped, 15ml (1tbsp) fresh coriander, chopped, 15ml (1tbsp) fresh parsley, chopped, 1 small red onion, sliced, and a pinch of cumin, ginger and cinnamon.
