So recently I started craving some ribs. I love them, especially when I coat them in my own bbq sauce. Greg likes them too, but he’s not really a pork fan, and he definitely doesnt like fat on his meat. Its for these reasons that I only make ribs every few months, and only when I find a really nice cut. When I started getting my craving last week, I looked around but I couldnt find anything that looked like something Greg could enjoy too. Thats when I thought about my favorite chef, and started thinking about how I could change the rib recipe to be the right one for me and my family.
The end result (I know, I’m hardcore but I LOVE cooking) was that I bought a small roast and proceeded to ignore the fact that it was indeed a ROAST. I cut it into rib fingers and cooked them just like ribs. We had them for dinner last night and Greg was so in love with his dinner, I couldnt have been happier :D. I put the recipe below for anyone who wants to try. Have fun!
Boneless Beef Ribs
– Cut the roast into rib shaped fingers. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
– Heat the oil in a pan and sear the "ribs" on all sides to get them nice and brown. Dont cook them.
– In a large pot, place your seared ribs and aromatics. Cover with water and boil for 45 minutes. No more, no less.
– Discard the water and aromatics, lay your ribs in a roasting pan, or crock pot
– Coat with bbq sauce.
If you use a roast pan – bake at 325 for 2 hours or until they fall apart with a fork
If you use a crock pot – leave on low heat for 6 hours, or high heat for 3 or 4 hours
I served them with mashed potato’s and sundried tomato and basil bread.
