Sticky Beef Ribs

You can use our Jacobs Ladder, Short Ribs or Dinosaur Bones for this recipe. Allow plenty of time (at least 6-7 hours) for this to cook as it's one of those dishes which can't be rushed. You'll know when it's ready when you can slide the meat off the bone.


1kg Short Ribs/Jacobs Ladder/Dinosaur bones

4 tbsps. ground coffee

200 ml cider vinegar

75 g tomato puree

100g soft brown sugar

5 cloves of garlic

1-2 tsps. dried chilli flakes

2 tbsps. dried oregano



Put all the ingredients, except the beef, into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Then simmer gently for 10 minutes. Allow to cool. Preheat the oven to 130 degrees C. Lay the ribs in a large roasting dish and brush them with the sticky sauce. Cook for 6 - 7 hours, brushing and basting regularly with the sauce until everything starts to melt and fall off the bone. Serve with rice and some fresh greens.
