- Prep: 45 mins
- Cook: 2 hrs
- Yields: 6 Servings
1In a medium size saucepan over a medium heat, fry the onions in the knob of butter until they soften and begin to colour.
2Add the garlic and ginger and fry for another minute. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well to combine.
3Bring the saucepan to the boil then turn down the heat and simmer for 20 minutes until the marinade thickens.
1Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
2Season the beef well with salt and pepper.
3Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Sear the beef, two pieces at a time, until you have a seared crust on all sides.
4This step is crucial for flavour so don’t rush it! Take your time and sear the meat as you would a steak. The better the crust the better the flavour.
5Place the garlic and thyme into a large roasting tray and arrange the ribs on top.
6Add the stock until the ribs are almost half covered.
7Seal tightly with heavy duty foil and braise in the oven for 2 hours.
8At the 2 hour mark, check the ribs and if they are not fork tender then braise for a further 30-45 mins.
9When the ribs are fork tender remove them from the oven and allow to cool.
1In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, boil the mielies in salted water for 10 minutes.
2Drain the water and add the butter and chives to the saucepan. Toss to coat the mielies and set aside.
1Remove the ribs from cooking liquid and paint with the marinade. Finish over the braai or grill to caramelise
