An easy and delicious oven-braised stew recipe for succulent, juicy Asian beef short ribs, flavoured with lots of ginger, garlic, gluten-free soya sauce, Szechuan peppers and Chinese Shaoxing rice wine. Perfect for a comforting family meal served with some steamed rice or your favourite starchy side and stir-fried vegetables.


Asian Beef Short Ribs

adapted from Donnay Hay
  • 1 tbsp Beef tallow or olive oil
  • 2 kg Beef short ribs
  • 60 g Ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 8 Garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Long red chilli pepper, deseeded and cut into large pieces
  • 3 Star anise
  • 2 Cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tsp Szechuan Peppercorns
  • 800 ml Homemade beef stock
  • 300 ml Shaoxing rice wine
  • 2 tbsp Soya sauce
  • 1 tbsp Coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro, chopped (to garnish)
  • 1 Red chilli pepper, cut into rings (to garnish)
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  2. Heat the tallow or oil in a large skillet over medium–high heat. Alternately use a Dutch oven or an ovenproof heavy-based saucepan with a lid. Sear the short ribs for 4–5 minutes on all sides or until well browned. You might need to do this in batches. Remove the ribs to a large baking dish, turning the beef, so the meat is lying against the baking dish and the bone is to the side.
  3. Add the ginger, garlic, and chilli to the skillet. Sauté for a few minutes until aromatic. Add in star anise, cinnamon sticks and Szechuan peppercorns, stock, Shaoxing wine, soya sauce and coconut sugar and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. Pour over the beef in the baking dish.
  4. Cover with a large piece of foil and transfer to the oven and roast, turning the beef halfway through cooking, for 3 hours or until very tender. Remove the foil and roast for a further 20 minutes or until the beef starts to caramelise.
  5. Remove the beef and skim off the fat from the sauce. Cook the sauce in a skillet over medium-high heat for 5–6 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Return the beef to the sauce to warm through, then divide among serving bowls. Garnish with chopped cilantro and sliced red chillie peppers.

We eat so little red meat any more I have to pass in this one, Angie.

Bet you will not be roasting any ribs in the second part of the week when the heat wave from Africa hits us with 40 plus hell LOL I am struggling to come up with a meal plan on such a heat with no use of oven and boiling too much stuff.

Que mezcla de sabores tiene tan buena este estofado. Especiados, salados, dulzones,... No soy mucho de carne, pero este guiso lo comía con mucho gusto.

I love short rubs and these sound amazing. I've made them with ginger but never with cinnamon.

I love Asian ribs....they are not too sweet and syrupy as American ribs. I'd love to prepare these soon! Thank you, Angie!
