BEEF or PORK RIBS PREPARED IN
TRADITIONAL AMERICAN STYLE !

YOU WILL NEED BOURBON (RYE) WHISKEY

Coastweek - - A Shanzu carnivore just back from the United States
describe this recipe as:
"the best ... absolutely the best ... way to
prepare beef or pork ribs. It takes a little time but the end result is
worth waiting for. If you don't have molasses you can use a good
rich dark Kenya honey as a suitable substitute."

.

  • two rashers of bacon

  • one very large red onion

  • two cloves of garlic

  • olive oil

  • two tablespoons tomato paste

  • one cup strong coffee

  • half cup Worcester sauce

  • one tea spoon of Tabasco

  • one cup molasses

  • half cup tomato ketchup

  6. Add this to the onions and cook for about forty minutes to one hour on a low heat.

  7. Add salt, pepper and Tabasco to taste.

  8. Wait until the mixture is cool and then pour half of the mixture over the ribs and let marinate overnight.

  9. Save the remaining mixture to serve with the ribs on the side.
