Dave's Slow Cooked Beef Ribs

Despite ribs being a staple in diets across the world, Australians revere them as hard to cook, easy to eat and exclusive to restaurant menus. At Hagen's we say 'No, ribs are for everyone!'.  

Dave our butcher at Hagen's in the Prahran Market gave us the low down this week on how he slow cooks beef ribs so that they're perfect every time. Firstly, he starts by selecting four plump ribs with a fat and meat covering over the bones.

 

Our beef is certified organic and comes from Nev and Carol Bredden’s farm in Creighton Creek, Victoria. Our family have had a long-standing relationship with the Bredden’s family having worked closely together as supplier and retailer since the early nineties.

 

Once selected, the beef ribs should be seasoned well with salt and pepper. Dave says that the simplest recipes are often the best, because the meat speaks for itself. Fresh thyme, bay leaves and beef stock are added to further enhance the flavour of the beef. They’re cooked in the oven for a few hours then finished off under the grill which caramelizes the softer fat on top, giving it a deliciously crispy finish (which can resemble pork crackling).

Having cooked his recipe this week, we’re convinced Dave’s slow cooked beef ribs are simplest and tastiest ribs around.

 

 

Dave’s Slow Cooked Beef Ribs

 

Recipe feeds two people

 

INGREDIENTS:

4 x beef ribs

1 x packet of Hagen’s beef stock (or two stock cubes and 2 cups of water)

¼ of a bunch of thyme

5 bay leaves

Salt and pepper to taste

 

METHOD:

Lay the ribs across a roasting dish or crock pot, season with salt and pepper, scatter dish with herbs and pour in the stock. The ribs don’t need to be submerged, ours came to about half way up the ribs. Place lid or foil over the top of the pan and bake at 160 degrees for around 4 hours. After baking, place under the grill for an additional 10 minutes until the top brown and begin to crisp. Serve with a seasonal salad like blanched beans, crushed almonds and a olive oil, garlic and lemon dressing.

This stew is a great example of showcasing how much flavour our newly released Fresh Chorizo can bring to a dish! ​It's paired with bone-in chicken thighs, where the skin has been seasoned and the fat is nicely rendered and crispy, tomatoes, oregano and olives. Another bonus, is that it's made in one pot for an easy clean up and can be served with rice or salad and fresh bread.

Our healthier take on Cacio Pepe, with the added goodness of greens! The brocollinni is taken to the point of being slightly charred, so it adds a real savoury flavour along with great texture to the dish. It's a dish that can be whipped up using mostly pantry staples and it served up in less than half an hour! You can sub the brocollinni out for any kind of veg and you could also add in some dry cured bacon for a little more richness.

In the spirit of spring, we've used our Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder for some bloody tasty tacos! ​We prepared it with slices of orange, onion, dried morita chilli and cumin and then sandwiched it in a corn tortilla with a tomatillo salsa and cabbage. Using our slow cooked lamb shoulder has made what is usually a 3-4 hour cook, into a quick and easy dinner that you can even cook mid week!
