These Greek-inspired barbecued ribs are flavoured with an oregano and garlic rub. Serve them with a squeeze of lemon.

Yield: Serves 4.



  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp oregano, crumbled
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 lb (2 kg) pork back ribs
  • Lemon wedges


  1. Combine oil, oregano, cayenne pepper, salt and garlic. Rub mixture over both sides of ribs. Let stand for 10 - 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat natural gas barbecue on low heat for 10 - 15 minutes.
  3. Grill ribs, turning occasionally, until ribs are brown and tender, about 1 1/4 hours. Alternatively, ribs may be placed in a shallow roasting pan and baked, uncovered, at 400°F for 1 1/4 hours. Squeeze juice from lemon wedges over ribs.
