Ginger-Orange Braised Short Ribs
A recipe for tender, “fall-from-the-bone” short ribs with an intense Asian flavor.
- Beef short ribs, cut into 4-ounce pieces 5 pounds
- Gluten-free soy sauce 1 cup
- Light-brown sugar ½ cup
- Rice vinegar ¼ cup
- Onion- and garlic-free chili paste 1 to 2 tablespoons
- Dark sesame oil 1 tablespoon
- Minced fresh ginger 2 tablespoons
- Red-pepper flakes ¾ teaspoon
- Orange juice, divided 4 tablespoons
- Water 4 cups
- Lemon juice 2 tablespoons
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Place the ribs, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, chili paste, sesame oil, ginger, red-pepper flakes, 2 tablespoons of the orange juice, and water in a large Dutch oven.
- Cover the pot and cook in the preheated oven for 3 hours, until the meat is very tender and falling apart. Take the pot out of the oven and carefully transfer the ribs to a plate. Set aside.
- Raise the oven temperature to 425°F.
- Skim the fat off the top of the cooking liquid. Bring the liquid to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook until it is reduced to about 1¼ cups, about 10 minutes.
- Strain the liquid through a fine-meshed sieve and discard the solids. Return the liquid to the pot and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of the orange juice and lemon juice.
- Return the ribs to the pot in the oven. Cook for about 10 minutes, until the liquid becomes a thick glaze. Serve hot.
