Smokey BBQ Sauce

You will love this tangy, spicy sauce, which is great as an addition to grilled or roast meat but can also be used as a baste for meat on the BBQ, or as a marinade.

If you’re using the oven to roast your lamb ribs (or beef or pork) then sprinkle them with Rosemary, add the sauce 15 mins before the end of the cooking time. Et voila! Perfect spicy, gooey, yummy ribs.

If you have any leftover (not likely!) it will keep in the fridge for a few days or make a large quantity and freeze what you don’t use.

Happy Australia Day!
