Smoked Paprika BBQ Pork Ribs


Marinate time: 4 hours
Cooking time: 2 hours


  • 1 kg (2,2 pounds) pork ribs
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp smoked paprika

For the sauce:

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground dry garlic


  1. Rinse the ribs well, dry with a paper towel. Season the ribs with salt and smoked paprika. Rub the ribs well with spices.
  2. Peel 4 cloves of garlic. Chop finely or pass through a garlic press. Brush the ribs well with garlic. Leave to marinate for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.
  3. After the ribs are ready, wrap in foil and bake for 2 hours at 180℃ (355℉). 
  4. During the last 10 minutes of cook time, mix together sauce ingredients.
  5. Remove ribs from the oven, remove foil and spread the tops of the ribs with the barbecue sauce mixture.
  6. Increase oven temperature to 220°C (428℉). Return ribs to the oven, uncovered, and bake for a further 6 minutes. Change oven settings to grill on medium-high heat to lightly char and caramelise the edges. It’s takes about 6 minutes.
