  • 1 pack Essential 2 British Pork Half Rack of Ribs
  • 2 tbsp Essential Tomato Ketchup
  • tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp Essential Vegetable Oil
  • 30g Essential Chunky Peanut Butter
  • 1 tsp wine or cider vinegar
  • ½ Essential Pointed Cabbage, shredded
  • 1 large Essential Carrot, peeled and coarsely grated
  • 10g piece ginger, grated
  • 4 Essential Salad Onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Essential Salted Peanuts, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Cut between the ribs to separate them. Combine the ketchup, paprika and oil in a bowl, then toss with the ribs to coat.

  2. Line a roasting tin with foil, then add the ribs. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until piping hot, cooked through and deep golden.

  3. Beat the peanut butter in a large bowl with the vinegar and 2 tbsp boiling water – stir to loosen. Add the cabbage, carrot, ginger and ½ the salad onions and mix well. If the slaw seems dry, add a dash more cold water. Transfer to plates and scatter with the peanuts and remaining salad onions. Serve with the ribs.

Cook’s tip

This is a great recipe for outdoor eating too. The salad can be made ahead, while the ribs are best ovenbaked for 20 minutes, before finishing off on the barbecue.
