Decadent, fork-tender beef ribs are a crowd favourite. English-cut ribs are meaty single portion beef ribs that can be ordered at your butcher's counter; the balsamic vinegar helps moderate their richness. Serve with roasted or mashed potatoes and fresh summer vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 6 pieces (3-inch/8 cm) English-cut beef ribs (about 4-1/2 lb/2 kg)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup sodium-reduced beef broth
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Method

Sprinkle ribs with pinch each of the salt and pepper. In large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown ribs, in batches. Remove from pan.

Drain all but 1 tbsp fat from pan. Add onion, garlic and rosemary; cook, stirring, until onion is softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in tomato paste; cook for 1 minute.

Add vinegar; cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Stir in beef broth, 1 cup water, bay leaves and remaining salt and pepper.

Return ribs to pan; cover and bake in 325ºF (160ºC) oven until meat is tender, about 2 hours.

With slotted spoon, transfer ribs to plate and keep warm. Skim fat from pan juices; cook sauce, uncovered, over medium-high heat until thickened enough to coat back of spoon, about 8 minutes. Discard bay leaves. Return ribs to pan, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with parsley.
