Asian Braised Short Ribs
Asian Braised Short Ribs



  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1.2kg beef short ribs
  • 1 chopped shallot
  • 4 bashed garlic cloves
  • 3cm piece of ginger, sliced
  • 250ml cooking sake
  • 500ml beef stock
  • 100ml soy sauce
  • 100ml mirin
  • 100ml rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 star anise
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan, season the ribs and sear on all sides until golden. Remove and drain almost all of the oil from the pan, then fry the garlic, ginger and shallot for 3 minutes, before pouring in the sake and simmering for 2 mins. Add the remaining ingredients, stir, and return the ribs to the pan. Simmer for 3-4 hours, until very tender.
  • Remove the ribs from the pan and set aside in a bowl. Strain the sauce through a colander, adding the aromatics to the bowl with the beef. Simmer the sauce for 10 mins in a pan until thickened, then pour all over the beef and serve with rice or whatever sides you fancy.
