This easy recipe for sticky ribs with fluffy jacket potatoes is American comfort food at its best. Serve with coleslaw, green salad and onion rings.

Main course


To ensure meltingly tender ribs that are cooked through, simmer in boiling water for 30-45 minutes then drain, cool and marinate overnight. The following day they can be grilled, barbecued or roasted in about 15-20 minutes. Otherwise, to roast or braise from raw, give them about 45 minutes.
