RECIPE: Rum and Coke BBQ Ribs

by Marquette Turner Luxury Homes

in Features, Old Wives Club, Recipes

This finger licking rum and coke ribs recipe is an excellent BBQ dish: it’s easy to make and of course a talking point to your friends, family or guests.


Ingredients – Ribs (serves 4)

2 racks large beef back ribs

1 tsp salt

½ tsp freshly ground pepper

1 onion, peeled and quartered

6 cloves garlic crushed

8 cups (2 litres) cola

Ingredients – Sauce

1 tsp olive oil

1 onion minced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp chilli powder

¾ cup tomato sauce

1/3 cup dark rum

¼ cup packed brown sugar

¼ cup cider vinegar

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Dash Tabasco Sauce


Trim any visible fat from ribs and remove membrane from underside if attached. Season both sides with salt and pepper and place meat-side down in large baking dish. Arrange onion and garlic evenly around ribs. Pour enough cola to cover ribs completely. Bake for 3 hours at 95C. Remove from oven and allow ribs to come to room temperature in cooking liquid, about 1½ hours.

To make sauce, heat oil in small saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, cumin and chilli powder and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add tomato sauce, rum, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce and simmer for 15 minutes.

Preheat barbeque to low.

Place ribs meat side down on grill and close lid. Cook, turning occasionally, until meat is browned and caramelized, about 30-45 minutes, or until tender and bones are exposed at ends. With 10 minutes remaining, brush ribs with barbeque sauce. Cut into 3 rib pieces and serve.
