Asian Braised Beef Ribs
Asian Braised Beef Ribs



  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1.2 kg beef short ribs
  • 1 chopped shallot
  • 4 garlic cloves, bashed
  • 3cm piece of ginger, sliced
  • 250ml sake
  • 500ml beef stock
  • 100ml soy sauce
  • 100ml sherry
  • 100ml rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 star anise
  • Heat the oil in a heavy-based saucepan and season the ribs before searing all over. Remove and drain most of the oil from the pan, then fry the garlic, ginger and shallot for 3 mins, before pouring in the sake and simmering for 2 mins more. Add all the remaining ingredients, stir well, and return the beef to the pan. Simmer on a low heat, covered, for 3 hours.
  • Remove the ribs from the pan and set aside. Strain the sauce through a sieve, and simmer the sauce for 10 mins to reduce by a third. Pour the sauce over the beef, and serve.
