My rib loving sister was visiting us so I decided to make her some ribs. We picked up some beef short ribs at the store and decided to marinate them in an Asian style sauce then braise them in the oven low and slow. They were so unbelievably tender, flavorful, and delicious. The meat just fell off the bones and melted in our mouths. My kids LOVED them as much as my husband, my sister, and I did. I can’t believe it took me so long to try braising short ribs.Asian Inspired Braised Beef Short Ribs: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
- 4-5 lbs of beef short ribs
- 1/2 cup of soy sauce
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 4-5 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste (if desired)
- Pinch of crushed red pepper
Combine all the ingredients together in a large zip lock bag. Add the short ribs and marinate for at least 4 hours.
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add a touch of olive oil and some cooking spray. Once the pan is HOT, add a few short ribs, searing them on all sides until nicely browned. Repeat the process until all ribs are browned. Place the ribs meat side down in a large glass baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray. Pour the marinade over the top of the ribs, cover tightly with tin foil and place in the oven to braise for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the meat is tender and falling off the bone.
Place the ribs on a platter and cover loosely with a tin foil tent. Place the braising liquid in a pan and boil until it reduces down by half. Serve the ribs with a bit of the reduced braising liquid on top. Enjoy.
