Spicy honey Pork ribs


1 kilogram or 6-8 traditional, not American cut baby back, pork ribs marinated or un marinated, it doesn’t matter.

1-2 cups of water or just enough to cover the ribs.

2 tablespoons of honey

1 teaspoon of paprika smokey or sweet it’s your choice

Less than ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper or chilli powder. Less or more depending on your spice tolerance


Place ribs and water in a small camp oven or heavy base fry pan and cook over moderate constant heat either on the stove top, over fire coals or a bed of heat beads with the lid on for about an hour.

Check regularly to ensure water does not evaporate too much then after the hour scoop out a little of the remaining hot liquid with a cup.

To the hot liquid add the honey, paprika and spice and stir to combine.

Pour liquid back in with the ribs and cook for a further 15-30 minutes till the sauce is thick and delicious.

As the ribs are very rich a light salad is all they need to be served with. Enjoy.

Use traditional ribs not the American cut baby back ribs as they are mostly bone and not much meat.


Beef or lamb ribs can be substituted.


Cola or beer can be used for the first cooking just watch that the pot does not dry out, as the high sugar content will make it burn.
