Barbecue Marinade

Sweet, sticky and crazy delicious... make finger licking ribs with this irresistible barbecue marinade

This barbecue marinade speaks for itself, perfect with any meat or brushed over a chunky hapuku steak. An old favourite, children love it especially with finger lickin' ribs. The stickier the better, hence perfect for outdoor dining.

Makes 1½ cups

¼ cup runny honey
3 Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp tomato sauce
Few drops tabasco sauce
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp paprika
Salt and pepper
Juice of 1 orange
4 Tbsp white wine vinegar

1. Combine all the ingredients. Store in a jar until required.

2. Brush half the marinade over the ribs, steak or fish, leaving for at least 2 hours or overnight before cooking.

3. Remove the meat from the marinade and cook on a barbecue at a low heat for 30-40 minutes (depending on the thickness), turning a few times.

4. If using ribs, let them rest for 10 minutes then slice into individual ribs. Heat the remaining marinade for 1 or 2 minutes and serve as a side sauce.
