Andrews Spare Ribs - from Mr D's Thermal Cook Book

Last night we had some of the family around and I decided to BBQ, I know the weather was not so good but stiff upper lid and all that. I had decided to use the Cobb BBQ for the barbie with Lokkii briquettes.The lokkii briquettes are completely organic and have an organic firelighter so they are both convenient and eco friendly.

I wanted to include spare ribs in the menu as I had some in the freezer. These work well on the BBQ but are even better if cooked slowly in the Shuttle Chef so I put together a simple recipe "Andrews Spare Ribs". The reason they are called this is that a Filipino chef who unfortunately is no longer with us taught me how to cook spare ribs this way and guess what his name was Andrew.


  • 1 kg Spare Ribs.
  • 1 Red Onion chopped
  • 500ml bottle tomato ketchup
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 magi stock cube
  • 2 tbsp Lea & Perrins Worcester Sauce
  • 1 cup of Sprite *
  • 1/2 tsp salt

* Sprite is used as a tenderiser.


  1. Put all the ingredients into your thermal cooker.
  2. Bring top the boil.
  3. Skim off any impurities that form on the surface.
  4. Turn down to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes put into thermal cooker outer pot.
  6. Leave for minimum 3 hours to cook.
  7. Serve with the lovely rich tomato sauce.
