BRAISED BEEF SHORT RIBS WITH RED RICE & MUSHROOMS

BRAISED BEEF SHORT RIBS WITH RED RICE & MUSHROOMS

Sweet, sour and sticky ribs make a satisfying meal and this slow cook will not disappoint.

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 3 hours
Serves: 6-8

Method

Preheat oven to 160°C.


Heat half the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add shallots, garlic and chilli and fry, stirring occasionally until tender and shallots are translucent (4-5 mins).

Add stock, fish sauce, palm sugar, lime leaves, coriander, lemongrass, shitakes and the coconut milk and simmer to allow for flavours to infuse (6-8 mins).

Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add ribs and brown well all over (2-3 mins). Transfer to a roasting pan to fit snugly in a single layer.

Add coconut milk mixture, cover with foil and braise in oven until meat falls from the bone (3½-4 hours). Stir in enoki and lime juice. Adjust seasoning with more lime juice, fish sauce and palm sugar for a sour, salty, sweet balance. Meanwhile, combine rice in a saucepan with 2 cups of cold water and 1 teaspoon of sea salt. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat, cover with a lid, reduce heat to low and cook until rice is tender and liquid absorbed (25-30 mins).

Remove from heat and stand covered to steam for 10 mins. Serve with ribs and braising liquid, scattered with coriander, fried shallots and chilli.
