Blazing hot and reminiscent of the fires of Hell, this devilish delight is one of my favorite, slow-cooked dishes to serve to guests on Hallowe'en night.
- 2 1⁄2 lbs beef, boneless ribs (country-style)
- 2 tablespoons hot sauce (Cholula)
- 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 tablespoon dried ancho chile powder
- 1⁄2 tablespoon cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons cumin seeds (ground into powder)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1⁄2 large tomatoes (diced)
- 2 tablespoons stone ground mustard (Inglehoffer)
- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- Cut the ribs in half and set aside.
- Mix all of the other ingredients together in a bowl.
- Marinate the meat in the other ingredients, turning to coat everything. Refrigerate for a minimum of 2-4 hours (overnight is best).
- Make a pouch out of aluminum foil and place the meat and its marinade inside. Crimp it shut.
- Place the aluminum foil pouch into a heated 225 degree (Fahrenheit) oven.
- Roast for 6 hours.
- Remove, plate, and serve. Native American fry bread, tortillas, or warm pita bread are good accompaniments for this dish.
