1/6 Photos of Jamaican Curry Beef Ribs With Papaya & Mango
1 hr 20 mins
In most tropical countries fruit is served at room temperature for this recipe it has to be well chilled before serving it over the hot spicy curried beef. The ribs that you choose must be very lean, well marbled. If they are large I recommend simmering them in water (bone in) for aprx 45 minutes to tenderize them, then remove the bones and continue with the recipe.. Save broth for another recipe. I have used small lean short ribs and removed the bone without simmering. They were very tender.
