Slow Cooked Balsamic Beef Ribs

This is a delicious and very cheap recipe to make. Great cooked in the oven or on the barbecue if the weather allows!IMG-20130323-01510


Beef ribs – 2lb/900g (well trimmed of fat)

Onion – 1 (cut into 8 wedges)

Garlic – 3 bulbs (thickly sliced)

Seasoning – Pepper and dried mixed herbs

Salt – a good sprinkle

Balsamic vinegar – 4fl oz/125 ml

Chilli flakes – 1/2 teaspoon

Equipment: Chopping board, knife, baking dish, saucepan, spatula, tin foil, trivet/wire rack


  1. Place the ribs in the baking dish and season with the pepper and herbs.
  2. Add the onion and garlic, cover and leave to infuse for a few hours in the fridge. Remove the dish from the fridge an hour before cooking.
  3. Uncover, season with salt and place in a hot oven (210°C/Fan 190°C/Gas 7) while you make the balsamic glaze.
  4. Put the balsamic vinegar and chilli flakes into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes until reduced by half.
  5. Remove the ribs from the oven and pour over the balsamic glaze, adding a little extra water to get the last out of the pan.
  6. Cover the ribs with tin foil and return to the oven lowered to 160°C/Fan 140°C/Gas 3. Baste every half hour if you want to.
  7. After 1½ hours remove the ribs from the baking dish and pour the juices into a mug. Put the trivet in the baking dish, place the ribs on top and pour the juices bag over the meat.
  8. Return to the oven and cook uncovered for 20 minutes on 190°C/Fan 170°C/Gas 5.
