    1. Wash and dry the ribs and put into a saucepan. Cover with cold water and add the malt vinegar. Bring to the boil simmer for 20 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile put the remaining ingredients into a small saucepan with 90ml of water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes to reduce and to thicken slightly.
    3. Drain the ribs and transfer to a casserole dish that will hold them in a single layer. Pour over the soy mixture and toss ribs to coat evenly.

    5. Remove foil and cook for a further 30 minutes, turning and basting every 5 minutes.
    6. Let stand for 5 minutes, serve with lime wedges and plenty of napkins.
