These feijoa and honey pork ribs are easy to pull together, even on busy weeknights.

The joy of this recipe is you can start the day before and get to the end of step two. Then, reheat the ribs the next day and simply smother them in marinade.


Serves 4-6

2 racks of pork ribs

1 cup feijoa pulp

1 clove garlic, crushed

Zest and juice of 1 lime

½ cup runny honey

½ red chilli, chopped small

1 cup chopped coriander
  1. Preheat the oven to 150C. Line a baking tray with paper.
  2. Blitz the feijoa, garlic, lime, honey, chilli and half the coriander. Place the ribs into the oven dish. Smother with half the marinade, leaving to sit for 20 minutes. Cover, pour in about 1 cup of water and place into the oven for 2 hours.
  3. Remove the ribs and turn the oven up to 180C. Brush with more marinade and cook for 20-30 minutes until sticky and delicious.
  4. Cut into single ribs, sprinkle with a bit of extra coriander and serve any extra marinade alongside.
