Easy Sweet & Sticky BBQ Ribs

Ribs can be a lot of work and my life isn't really conducive to work intensive meals, so I've started making ribs the easy way. I'll admit, the slow grilled version is amazing, but when I need a quick meal and want ribs - this is the ticket!

Easy Sweet & Sticky BBQ Ribs

3 sides of ribs (pork or beef)
1 Bottle Beer
1 Onion, quartered
4 clove Garlic
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
1 bottle of your favourite BBQ sauce (Bulls Eye Guinness)
1 & 1/2 cups Apricot Jam
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Hot Sauce 

Cut ribs into smaller pieces (2-3 rib sections). Add to a large stock pot with beer and enough water to cover ribs. Boil for 30-40 minutes until meat is tender and falling off the bone. 

In a separate bowl, combine BBQ sauce, apricot jam, brown sugar, and hot sauce. Spread over cooked ribs, cover, and let marinade for 20 minutes. Pre-heat grill to medium high heat. Grill sauced ribs for about 5 minutes on each side until the sauce is nicely caramelized.

Serve with Grilled Asparagus and Dillytard Potato Salad for a fantastic BBQ meal. 

Camping option: pre-boil the ribs and bring the sauce - a great addition to any camping menu.
