Beef short ribs apparently aren’t a thing on Good Friday. I’m not really sure why beef is taboo and why everyone goes for seafood. I mean I love seafood but it’s so expensive.
This is a simple and easy version of tender fall off the bone beef short ribs. A real winner except that as I was gnawing a little piece of meat off the bone I broke a molar.
- 1 rack Beef short ribs 500 grams
- 1 cup Barbecue sauce
- 1 cup Red wine
- 1 cup Red wine vinegar
- ¼ cup Maple syrup
- 1 bunch Coriander
- 2 tablespoons Garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons Chilli flakes
- ½ head Cabbage
- 1 bunch Broccolini
- 1 piece Jalapeño pepper
- 1 piece Capsicum
Unwrap the ribs and put them in a roasting tray
Pour over the maple syrup, barbeque sauce, red wine and red wine vinegar
Add the garlic powder and chilli flakes
Place the coriander around the ribs
Allow to marinade for 60 minutes
Cover the roasting tray with aluminium foil and put into an oven (150 °C/300 °F) for three hours
Half an hour before the three hours, cook the cabbage and broccolini in boiling water
At three hours remove the roasting tray and uncover, add the boiled vegetables to the roasting tray and return to the oven (200 °C/400 °F) for thirty minutes
Remove the roasting tray and allow the ribs to rest for fifteen minutes
Plate up the vegetables in a shallow bowl and then add the ribs on top
Shoot a photograph and tuck in
Finish the vegetables soaked in meat juices first and then eat the meat from the ribs and gnaw the meat that is attached to the bone and break off a tooth and feel quite sad about the amount of money it's going to cost to repair
Contemplate life and then smile knowing that it's pay week next week
Post the story to Facebook and Twitter and read sympathetic replies and some funny ones about how this is a lesson for eating meat on Good Friday
Clean the dishes and wonder just how painful will it be to brush my teeth tonight
Further, meditate on the destiny of the large amount of animal flesh that is sitting in my stomach being churned and chemically digested
Find solace in the fact that I had cabbage and I'll enjoy farting in bed later tonight
I'd love it if you could share this recipe on social media, especially Facebook and Twitter. Thanks!
This was a great meal apart from breaking a tooth. I'd highly recommend it to any meat lover.
For lunch today I made a streaky bacon, pâté and smoked cheese cheeseburger with a hot cross bun.
For breakfast, I had the traditional Good Friday fare of a little toasted hot cross bun with my stick of butter.
Here’s a final look at my dinner and the broken tooth
