Without a second thought, my favourite food is ribs. Nothing beats the sweet flavour, eating off the bone and licking your fingers!! So to have a healthy option, both the sauce and the meat – makes me so happy!

The Key Ingredient:

2.3 kg AngusPure beef short ribs – Serves 8


For the Marinade:

  • Olive oil
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup honey
  • 150 grs grated ginger
  • 6 chopped garlic cloves
  • 5 sticks of celery
  • 1 sliced onion
  • 500 ml beef stock to cover
  • Sea salt and pepper


For the Sauce:

  • 4 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 teaspoons malt vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon English mustard


  • Preheat the oven to 100ºC
  • Place the ribs in a roasting dish, season with sea salt and black pepper, drizzle with oil. In a medium bowl combine all the ingredients to make the marinade, add the marinade to the ribs and leave it over night.
  • Cover tightly with a double layer of tin foil, then cook for 7 to 8 hours, or until tender.
  • Transfer the ribs to a baking tray. Skim away any fat.
  • Place the roasting dish over a high heat on the hob and bring the juices to the boil. Simmer for around 2 minutes, then add the sauce ingredients and bring back to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for a further 10 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Remove celery, garlic and onion.
  • Brush the sauce and juice mixture onto the ribs so they are coated all over, then return the ribs to the oven for 20 to 40 minutes, or until sticky.
