General Information

This recipe can easily be done in an oven instead of on the BBQ. Follow the steps below!

Preheat oven to 220˚C/200˚C fan-forced. Combine barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce, maple syrup, mustard and paprika in a small saucepan. Stir until well combined and bring to the boil over medium-high heat.

Reduce heat and simmer for 4-5 minutes until slightly thickened.  Pour half of the barbecue sauce mixture into a bowl and set aside until ready to serve.

Place pork rashers in a single layer onto a greased rack in a large baking tray well-lined with foil. Liberally brush on both sides with the remaining barbecue sauce mixture.

Roast for 55-60 minutes, brushing occasionally with remaining barbecue sauce mixture and turning, until golden brown.

Sprinkle with green onions and serve with mixed salad.  Serve with reserved barbecue sauce mixture for dipping and a mixed salad.
