2 kg baby back pork ribs (6 People)



  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced.
  • 1 teaspoon of Sweet Spicy Chilli Garlic Oil Ivy’s Homemade


  • In a bowl, whisk together the barbecue sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, and Sweet Spicy Chilli Garlic until well combined.
  • Place the prepared ribs in a shallow dish.
  • Pour the marinade over the ribs, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  • Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for better flavour penetration.

Chili Sauce Mixture: 


  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Sweet Spicy Chilli Garlic Oil Ivy’s Homemade
  • 1 tablespoon honey


In a small bowl, whisk together the barbecue sauce, Sweet Spicy Chilli Garlic, and honey, until well combined.

  • Now, to continue with the cooking process:
  • Preheat the oven to 250°F (120°C)
  • Remove ribs from the fridge keeping an excess marinade in a baking dish.
  • Cover the baking dish with foil to seal in the moisture and bake in the preheated oven for 2 hours at 250°F (120°C).
  • After 2 hours, remove the ribs from the oven and transfer them to a lined baking tray (you can use foil or parchment paper).
  • Brush or spoon the chili sauce mixture over the tops of the ribs, spreading it evenly.
  • Place the ribs back in the oven and bake (or grill) for an additional 5-10 minutes, keeping a close eye to prevent burning. The goal is to achieve crispy, charred edges.
  • Every minute or so, slather the ribs with more of the chili sauce mixture to build up the flavour and caramelization.
  • Once the ribs have reached your desired level of crispiness and caramelization, remove them from the oven.
  • Let the ribs rest for a few minutes before serving.
  • Serve the ribs with any remaining chili sauce mixture on the side for dipping, if desired.
  • Enjoy your delicious and flavourful chili baby back ribs!
