Braised Beef Ribs


3 Beef Ribs

Sprinkle of sea salt

Sprinkle of Traeger rub or any meat rub

1 bulb of garlic

2 onions

6 cloves black garlic

3 sprigs rosemary

6 rashers streaky bacon

1 tin chopped tomatoes

1 handful parsley

1 heaped tsp dried tarragon

½ tsp ground cinnamon

200ml red wine

700 ml beef stock

2 bay leaves

1 tsp marmite


  1. Take your beef ribs out at least an hour before cooking to acclimatise
  2. Trim your ribs of any hard fat then season with salt and traeger rub or spices and set aside
  3. Finely chop your onion, parsley & black garlic
  4. Dice your onion and chop your bacon into small pieces
  5. Cut your garlic in half and leave in the skin
  6. In a hot pan seal your meat until golden on both sides then place in a casserole dish
  7. In the same hot pan add your onion and bacon then as it begins to colour add 1 sprig of rosemary, cook until golden
  8. Add in your wine, Marmite, cinnamon, black garlic, parsley and tarragon and allow it to reduce then add all of this to your casserole dish
  9. Pour in your beef stock, remaining rosemary, and whole garlic and tin of chopped tomatoes, stir it all in
  10. put a lid on it and put in the oven at 150℃ for 5 hours turning the ribs very carefully mid way
  11. After five hours carefully remove the ribs onto a plate and pour all of the contents of the dish through a sive so the sauce collects in a pan be sure to squash through as much goodness as possible into the pan.
  12. scoop off any fat that has risen to the top, i use kitchen roll as it only soaks up the oil!
  13. put the ribs back into the sauce and put the casserole dish back in the oven at 150℃ for another hour then serve
  14. I served this with mash potatoes and veg
