Roasted Short Ribs from Kenya

Posted for ZWT, but I haven't made it yet. The recipe didn't specify amounts on the spices, but I would guess between 1/8 - 1/2 teaspoon of each, then more to taste later if needed. Also, I guessed on the servings and the time, and I didn't include the marinating time in the time requirements.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients except short ribs and mix well. Add meat, stir to coat and let marinate for at least one hour.
  2. Grill meat or broil it in oven.
  3. Serve with Ugali (cornmeal porridge).

Weeellllllll...I used pork ribs. And they turned out FABULOUS! This is a very tasty spice mix & a breeze to whip together. I will try this on beef short ribs someday! Made for ZWT4- the African Spice it Up Challenge. I used recipe#251024 in place of the curry powder.

A whole new way of spicing up ribs! Plenty of short ribs in the freezer - will be playing around with those seasonings as can see one lot of possible combinations to add variety to our meals. I was genereous with the curry powder and the paprika using all as per recipe - being light on the coriander - marinated for about five hours. Made for excellent ribs that were very flavorful.

Made & reviewed for ZWT - Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I used 1/2 tsp each of turmeric, coriander & hot paprika, and 1tsp of curry powder plus salt & fresh black pepper to taste for my ribs. I also added a little grated lemon zest & a tiny pinch of cloves as Zurie mentioned. I also added some finely chopped fresh coriander / cilantro. The ribs turned out beautiful - succulent, juicy & very flavourful! This will definitely be made again - Thanks Julie for another winner!
