- 3 lbs short rib of beef, about 10 ribs
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 10 -12 garlic cloves, smashed
- 1 inch piece gingerroot, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch slices
- 12 ounces good ale (recommended ( Bass)
- 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1⁄2-1 cup hoisin sauce
- Season the ribs generously with salt and pepper. Heat the vegetable oil in a large heavy pot with a lid (Dutch oven) over high heat. Brown the ribs on all sides, in batches if necessary. Remove the ribs and pour off all but a couple tablespoons of the rendered fat.
- Return the pot to the stove, lower the heat to medium and saute the garlic and ginger for about 3 minutes. Add the ribs back to the pot. Add the beer and the vinegar. Stir and then cover and simmer for 2 1/2 hours.
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
- Pour the hoisin sauce over the ribs, move the pot to the oven, and cook, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
- Remove ribs and ginger from sauce. Strain fat from the top of the pot so that you're left with just the good stuff.
- Serve with Creamy Mashed Yukons and Sesame Snow Peas.
This was very good! In fact, my picky brother loved it. I used a brown ale and also agree that it probably does not need to simmer 21/2 hours. My ribs were small but when they came out they were fall off the bone perfect.
I made these after watching the show and if I could give it more than five stars, I definitely would! I used Negra Modelo Dark Ale and served with rice and asparagus. I also found I did not need to simmer for 2 1/2 hours - I think it depends on the size of the ribs. Excellent recipe - worth the time!
