d100 Recipes: BBQ Ribs and Afrikaans Pancakes

It’s getting cold down here in the southern hemisphere, and that means one thing: comfort food; and what better comfort food is there than some good, old hearty ribs and pancakes the way we make them in South Africa.

BBQ Ribs


  • 1kg (2.2 lbs) pork spareribs
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • ½ cup of ketchup
  • ½ cup of soy sauce
  • 2 crushed cloves of garlic
  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Oven
  • Baking tin (approx 30cmx20cm/12”x8”)
  • Baking/parchment paper
  • Tin/aluminum foil


  • Mix all the ingredients (except the ribs) together in a bowl.
  • Pour the marinade over the ribs, cover and refrigerate for a few hours (or just do it overnight)
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
  • Line a baking tin with baking/parchment paper.
  • Put the ribs into the baking tin and pour over the marinade.
  • Cover with tin/aluminum foil and bake for 2 hours
  • Remove the foil and bake for a further 30 minutes or until the meat starts falling off the bones.

Afrikaans Pancakes


  • 1 cup of self-raising flour (or 1 cup flour and 1 teaspoon baking powder)
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon powder


  • Stove top/hob


  • Add the salt to the flour and mix through the milk a bit at a time to avoid clumps
  • Beat the eggs well and whisk it in to the batter
  • Heat up a frypan and add onto it only enough of the batter to cover the bottom of the pan
  • Cook until golden brown on the bottom, flip the pancake, and repeat on the other side
  • Mix together the sugar and cinnamon
  • Sprinkle on some cinnamon-sugar onto the pancake, and roll up the pancake and it’s ready to serve
