APL Beef Ribs, Strange but Tasty :)




I tried out an Adam Perry Lang recipe for beef ribs the other day. This was from his "Serious Barbecue" cookbook that friend Greg sent awhile back. (not sure if you will see this Greg, but thanks again!)
The recipe is called Short Ribs with Fleur De Sel.  I'm a huge fan of beef ribs...they rate right up there with bacon, chocolate and garlic for me. I was looking forward to tasting these bad boys.

I'm not sure if it's alright to post recipes that belong to someone else so I'll just give a brief description.

The recipes calls for a mustard/vinegar base coat.



A 6 ingredient dry rub...



After coating the short rib plate with the dry rub, the recipe says to brush with a bit of oil. I just used my spray bottle of oil and gave it a good misting.


Onto the horizontal wood burner... (the danged wheels are starting to sink into the soft ground again. Still need to build a patio under it)



 

After smoking the ribs for 5 hours at 250F,  foil with a brown sugar, honey, beef bouillon mixture and cook meat side down for another hour.



This is where the strange part started happening...
After removing the ribs from the foil, cook bone-side down for another 45 minutes.

During this process I noticed the bones ..... two headed east..... and two were westward bound.
 As many beef ribs as I've cooked, I've never had them do this before. I'm sure it was the way they were cut. :)

 



 


The ribs were nice and thick...



The recipe for the finishing dressing reminded me of parsley salad that I used on beef marrow. SO I went that route. Toasted some bread slices...



Topped the toasts with slices of the beef ribs...





topped with the parsley/Fleur de sel finishing mixture...



It was pretty danged tasty :)




The recipe has 20 ingredients (not including the beef ribs). I'm more of a keep it simple cook especially when it comes to beef....but these were pretty fine ribs. I will make them again for sure. :)

You know Jeanie, I saw APL Ribs and thought Animal Planet. APL is the abbreviation for Animal Planet on our cable. I didn't know what to expect. That is weird with the alternating ribs. Makes for a good picture. They look good as well. Can't wait to try these. You know I prefer beef ribs to pork.

Now I can understand how the west was won:
They had no compass; they used beef ribs . . .

Good job, Jeanie.
