  • 2 racks pork ribs, silver lining membrane removed.
  • 1 bottle of beer
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 grated orange peel

  1. Cut the two racks into halves giving you four pieces. Place into a dish.

  5. In the meantime pre-heat the oven to 275F (137C).
  6. Place ribs on a baking sheet, ensure ribs are well sauced, cover with tin foil and place in the oven.
  7. Cook the ribs for approximately two hours.
  8. Remove the time foil and place back in to the oven for another 15-20 minutes maximum. 
  9. Remove from heat and let the ribs rest for five minutes, sprinkle with crushed pistachios and more orange zest, dip and dunk into more KC BBQ sauce and enjoy!
