Ingredients

1 kg beef short ribs
2 tbsp olive oil
1 long green chilli, seeds removed, finely chopped 
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
large pinch sea salt
freshly ground white pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground chilli powder
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground all-spice
400g tinned tomatoes, chopped
11/2 tbsp pickled jalapeño chillies, chopped
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
600ml chicken stock
juice of 1 fresh lime
1 bunch coriander, leaves picked and roughly chopped

Method

PLACE THE RIBS in a heavy-based saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Strain, return back to saucepan and cover again with fresh water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 hour. Turn off the heat and allow the ribs to cool in the water. Drain, place in a bowl, and set aside.

PREHEAT THE OVEN to 180°C.

HEAT THE OLIVE OIL in a wide, heavy-based saucepan and sauté the green chilli, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, chilli powder, ground coriander and all-spice for about 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the tomatoes, jalapeños, brown sugar, red wine vinegar and chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Pour this mixture over the ribs, toss to coat, and place on a lined baking tray. Pour over any remaining marinade.

ROAST THE RIBS for about 1 3/4 hours, stirring occasionally, or until the meat is golden and falling from the bones. Drain off excess fat. Gently stir through the lime juice, garnish with coriander, and serve.

Wouldn't it be more pasta-esque if it were served hot? This just seems like a salad. Read more
