About the Cut: Short ribs are a cut of beef taken from the brisket, chuck, plate, or rib areas of beef cattle. They consist of a short portion of the rib bone, which is overlain by meat which varies in thickness.
Cooking Suggestion: Beef Ribs are best cooked slow so that they become tender, juicy and fall off the bone with perfection. They can be slow grilled, braised (slow cooked for hours in a red wine, beef stock, and rich tomato sauce) or slow oven baked.
Grilled Beef Ribs with Smoky-Sweet Barbecue Sauce (Recipe by foodandwine.com)
- 1Kg Beef Ribs
- 1 Litre of Coca-Cola
- 1 Litre of Water
- 1 and ½ teaspoons of black pepper
- Coarse Salt
Sweet Barbecue Sauce Ingredients
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup canned tomato sauce
- 1/2 cup unsulfured molasses
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons hot sauce
- 2 tablespoons liquid smoke
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons yellow mustard
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure ancho chili powder (If can’t find ancho chili powder, substitute regular chili powder and a little crushed red pepper. For a recipe that calls for 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder, substitute 1 teaspoon regular chili powder and 1/8-1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper).
- Cook the ribs: Put the ribs in a very large pot or roasting pan; add the cola and enough water to just cover. Bring to a boil, skimming off any scum on the surface. Add the peppercorns and 1 tablespoon of salt. Cover and simmer over low heat until the meat is tender but not falling off the bone, 2 hours; drain.
- Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer over very low heat, stirring frequently, until thick and glossy, about 15 minutes.
- Grill the ribs: Light a grill. Working in batches, arrange the ribs on baking sheets and brush them with the sauce. Grill the ribs or broil 10 inches from the heat, turning and brushing with sauce, until lightly charred, 12 minutes. Serve with the remaining sauce.
