Pears are such an underrated fruit when it comes to baking, but SO versatile. Great for breakfast, cakes or baked desserts, pears can also be roasted, poached, baked,… there are so many delicious pear recipes using fresh pears.

This fruit works perfectly with most Spices and other Autumnal fruits like Apples (check out my Pear and Apple Crumble!) or Oranges.

I have rounded them up in the following categories:

  • Breakfast
  • Cakes
  • Desserts

Pick your favourite variety of pears (or the one that suits your recipe the best) and let’s get baking. My personal favourites are Bosc, Anjou and Bartletts!

Beef Ribs in BBQ Sauce – slow cooked

Extremely hands off, foolproof way to cook beef ribs – slow cooked in the oven in a homemade BBQ Sauce braising liquid until the meat is fall apart and ridiculously juicy inside, and the outside is bronzed and sticky.

BONUS: this all happens in one pan, it’s 100% perfect for make ahead and freezing, and makes its own barbecue sauce (and it might be the best you ever have in your life!).

Slow cooked BBQ Beef Ribs

Beef ribs are the king of all beef cuts (pretty sure I said that in my Beef Short Ribs in Red Wine Sauce too). They are juicier than brisket and chuck (there’s always a few lean-ish patches, that’s just the way that cut is). Beef Cheeks come close, but ribs have one big thing going for them that cheeks do not:

THE BONE.

I don’t know what it is about fall apart meat on a bone, but it gets me every time. Hence my ever increasing collection of lamb shank recipes. And pork ribs. And now it seems I’ve moved onto beef ribs!

If you’re new to beef ribs, this is an excellent way to introduce them into your life, and I’ll wager that they’ll become a regular fixture. The sweet-savoury flavour of the BBQ Sauce is a perfect match with the beefy flavour of ribs.

And it’s virtually a foolproof recipe – you just need to ensure it’s cooked long enough so the beef becomes like THIS:

 

Fork picking up beef short ribs meat

BBQ Beef Ribs Rub

Here’s what you need for the Rub. There’s quite a few substitutions possible so don’t fret if you don’t have every item:

Spice Rub for BBQ Beef Ribs

Beef Ribs

Beef ribs do come in a variety of cuts, but I’m using the most common cut (here in Australia) which is also called beef short ribs. It’s a chunky rectangle block, cut with individual bones and are very meaty.

They shrink about 30% so try to get big meaty ones. But if you can only get small ones ~250g/8oz, that’s still ok!

Beef rib RACK: sometimes you see beef ribs in rack form. They typically have less meat on them. They will work great in this recipe too – see recipe card for directions. However, make sure you do NOT use the rib racks that come vac packed – these have been brined and will be too salty (read ingredients, if it has anything in it other than beef, then it’s brined ie salt injected).

Beef alternative cuts: beef cheeks and chuck (cut into baseball size chunks) will both work really great here. For brisket, use the Barbecue Beef Brisket recipe.

Other meats: For pork ribs, use this recipe and for chicken, use this recipe.

Rub substitutions:

  • Brown sugar – sub white
  • Garlic powder – 1 tsp minced garlic (using press) per 1 tsp powder
  • Onion powder – garlic powder
  • Mustard powder – dijon or standard mustard

If subbing fresh garlic or mustard spread, then rub those wet ingredients on first before pressing into dry rub.

Beef Ribs braising liquid / homemade BBQ sauce

And here’s what you need for the homemade BBQ Sauce which doubles as the braising liquid for the beef ribs (so it absorbs flavour as it slow cooks which is why we don’t need to marinate these ribs):

Ingredients in barbecue sauce for BBQ Beef Ribs

  • Ketchup is the primary flavour base for homemade barbecue sauce. You’ll find it in all my barbecue sauce flavoured recipes, including this (easy!) midweek Baked BBQ Chicken, BBQ Pork Ribs, Pulled Pork with BBQ Sauce and slow cooked brisket with BBQ Sauce. Sub with Aussie Tomato Sauce – it’s almost as good;
  • Cider vinegar – the tang in homemade barbecue sauce. Sub with white wine vinegar, sherry or Champagne vinegar OR 1/3 cup normal white vinegar;
  • Brown sugar – barbecue sauce is sweet. If you don’t like sweet, you can cut it back.
  • Garlic – I really like using fresh but powder is fine too;
  • Onion powder – sub garlic powder;
  • Mustard powder – sub with dijon or normal yellow mustard (not hot English mustard! Unless you WANT the heat!)
  • Worcestershire Sauce – savoury element. Soy sauce (all purpose or light) is an acceptable sub (it won’t make it Asiany);
  • Cayenne – for a hum of warmth. This is not overly spicy. If you’re concerned, start with less and you can adjust right at the end. If you like it hot, start with the recipe amount then add hot sauce at the end.

How to make BBQ Beef Ribs

Dead easy – everything goes into the pan, then you slow cook it in a moderate oven until the meat is fall apart tender. It’s fabulously foolproof because there’s a big window before the meat will start to dry out from overcooking – I’ve left it in 1 1/2 hours too long and it was STILL juicy!

How to make Beef Short Ribs in barbecue sauce

PRO TIP: Make in advance

If you’re a first timer or worried about cook timing for a scheduled meal (re: whether it will take longer for the beef to become fall-apart tender), make it earlier in the day or even the day before…or the day before! As with all slow cooked things (like stews, shanks), the flavour gets better with time and it’s really straightforward to reheat.

That makes this a sensational dinner party option! It plates up really elegantly, posh restaurant style – and I have options below for fine-dining type sides instead of the hearty finger-licking type sides pictured (Coleslaw and steamed corn, classic BBQ sides)

Here’s a close up look at the homemade Barbecue Sauce you end up with in the pan. The beauty of this method of cooking is that the juices from the ribs mix in with the sauce, so you’re essentially make it with the ultimate money-can’t-buy beef stock!

Spoon scooping up BBQ sauce for beef ribs

ANOTHER PRO TIP: For a posh restaurant experience, strain the sauce to make it silky smooth. I do this for VIPs only.????

Grilling option!

In the recipe video, I make this entirely in the oven, including the caramelisation at the end. But if it were warmer weather, I would have finished it on the BBQ! I’ve included directions for grilling in the recipe.

What to serve with BBQ Beef Ribs

As promised, I’m going to offer up a couple of different options for how to serve beef ribs – rustic, finger lickin’ barbecue style OR elegant fine dining style (and yep, beef ribs certainly appear on the menu of fine dining restaurants, prized for the juicy qualities and because it CAN be plated up elegantly):

Rustic Finger Lickin’ Good Barbecue Sides

I don’t know what it is about sides with mayo based dressings, but they just go so well with anything glazed with barbecue sauce!

My picks: steamed corn, our best No Mayo Coleslaw, Green Bean Salad with Cherry Tomato Feta, cornbread (for mopping).

Elegant sides, fine dining style

My picks for a posh plate: Potato Gratin Stacks, Garlic Sautéed Spinach, Garlic Mushrooms.

Whichever way you go, it will be a hit. I know it, you know it! – Nagi x

Ingredients

  • 6 x 300 - 350g / 10 - 12 oz beef ribs (aka beef short ribs) (Note 1), patted dry

RUB (Note 2):

  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp paprika powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 3/4 tsp mustard powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Barbecue SAUCE (Note 2):

  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar , loosely packed (ie don't pack it tight)
  • 2 tsp EACH black pepper, onion powder, mustard powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to taste re: spiciness)
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups water

Optional garnish:

  • Parsley or chives , chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 160°C/320°F (all oven types).
  • Mix Rub in a small bowl large, enough to fit one rib.
  • Press beef ribs into the rub, coating all sides. Shake off excess.
  • Mix Barbecue Sauce ingredients, except water, in a baking pan. Then mix in water.
  • Place ribs in sauce, turning to coat. Arrange meat side down in the sauce, bone side exposed (sauce won't cover completely, that's ok).
  • Cover tightly with foil or lid, bake 3 1/2 hours.
  • Remove from oven, remove foil. Turn ribs (some may have fall over, that's ok, just turn them). Spoon over sauce.
  • Bake 30 minutes uncovered, spooning over sauce again halfway through, until surface is caramelised and sticky. Check to ensure ribs are tender - pry a bit apart using two forks. (If not, cover and return to oven, but after 4 hrs they certainly should be!)
  • Remove ribs onto serving plate. Mix sauce to bring together. Serve with ribs!

SERVING OPTIONS:

  • Share platter (rustic!): Serve ribs on a platter for people to help themselves with some sauce on it, and some sauce on the side for people to help themselves.
  • Individual posh restaurant style: place rib on plate, spoon over sauce (see note about straining option). Garnish.
  • See in post for side options (both rustic and posh!).

Notes

1. Beef Ribs - comes in a variety of cuts. For this recipe, you want the chunky rectangle block cut, often called Beef Short Ribs. See photo in post. They come cut in individual bones and are very meaty.
They shrink about 30% so try to get big meaty ones. But if you can only get small ones ~250g/8oz, that's still ok!
Beef ribs racks (less meaty, bones not separated) - use anywhere between 1.5 - 2.5kg / 3- 5lb (this recipe requires a minimum amount of braising liquid and it makes tons of sauce, more than needed for the beef ribs). Oven time will vary depending on meatiness, but for average racks, I'd say 2.5 hrs covered, 30 min uncovered (but check at 1.5 hrs). You may need to scale up the Rub slightly (more surface area)
ALTERNATIVE MEATS: Beef cheeks (easily 2kg/4lb, beef chuck cut into baseball size chunks (2kg/4lb). For both these, check at 2 hrs, total oven time ~3 hrs. For brisket, use the Barbecue Beef Brisket recipe. For pork ribs, use this recipe and for chicken, use this recipe.
DO NOT buy beef ribs that come in a vac pack where the ingredients label has salt or any other ingredient other than beef (these are brined so they're salty, so this will come out too salty). If you're desperateand brined beef is all you can get, leave a comment below and I'll tell you how to adjust the recipe.
2. Ingredient subs:
Brown sugar - sub white
Garlic powder - 1 tsp minced garlic (using press) per 1 tsp powder
Onion powder - garlic powder
Mustard powder - dijon or standard mustard
Cider vinegar - white wine vinegar, sherry or Champagne vinegar OR 1/3 cup normal white vinegar.
Ketchup - Aussie/UK tomato sauce
If subbing fresh garlic or mustard spread in the rub, then rub those wet ingredients on first before pressing into dry rub.
3. Sauce adjustments - in the perfect world (like in the video!), it is the perfect thickness for serving straight out of the oven. In reality, ovens vary, roasting pan heat retentions vary, rib sizes vary, hence evaporation rate varies. If need be, add a splash of boiling water to thin out. If too thin (doubt it), pop back into oven. Taste and add salt if needed, or a hit of hot sauce if you want more spice. If you want to get really posh, strain it (I only do this for VIP).
4. Finish on GRILL! This is an excellent wow-factor grilling recipe. Cook it per recipe fully covered until it's fall apart tender (check with 2 forks). Then spoon over sauce, keep covered and transfer beef into a container, and sauce in another ie. do not do the uncovered roasting step. Once fully cool, refrigerate. On the day of, microwave beef to heat through - we only grill to caramelise the outside and get subtle smokey flavour. Baste with warmed sauce, then grill 3 minutes on each side on medium, basting lots, until you get a wickedly good caramelised sauce with charred bits. SO GOOD!
5. Storage - gets better with time, excellent low-effort make ahead option for special occasions. Cool, refrigerate in sauce (or separate sauce if you strained it for posh-style). Keeps 5 days in fridge. The either reheat in microwave (I do this, for most moist steamy outcome), or oven (180°C/350°F covered for 20 minutes until meat is hot and tender all the way through, then uncovered to recaramelise surface if needed, I find it's not required).
Freezer - 3 months in airtight container. Thaw then reheat using one of above options (do not try to microwave or heat from frozen, takes too long for inside to thaw/heat by which time outside will be too tender / might dry out. Travesty!)
6. Nutrition per beef rib, assuming 2/3 sauce is consumed (there will be sauce leftover. See in post for what to do with it ????

Life of Dozer

Calendar boy!

Dozer-calendar-boy_1

This calendar was a gift. And I was secretly extra thrilled because I thought it might be borderline too crazy-dog-lady to make one myself.

So I keep my fingers crossed every year on my birthday and Christmas that someone will give me a Dozer calendar. Eight years in, and I’ve never had to!! Someone always comes through! ????
