  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 8 fresh parsley sprigs
  • 2 lemon slices
  • 1 lb potato peeled and cubed
  • 1 lb carrots peeled and cut diagonally in 2-inch (5 cm) thick slices
Chili Biscuits:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic finely chopped
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons minced coriander
  • 1 cup whipping cream


One Day Ahead:
Arrange ribs in single layer in large shallow roasting pan. Broil 4-inches (10 cm) from heat, turning often, for about 10 minutes or until browned.

In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat; cook onions and garlic, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until translucent.

Add tomatoes, stock, vinegar, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, hot pepper sauce, pepper, paprika, turmeric, parsley and lemon slices. Add ribs and pan drippings; bring to boil. Cover and transfer to 350°F (180°C) oven; bake for about 2 hours or just until ribs are tender.

Add potatoes and carrots. Bake, covered, for about 1 hour or until vegetables are tender. Discard parsley and lemon. Let cool for about 30 minutes. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Remove fat from top.

One Hour Before Serving:
Bring ribs to simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.

Chili Biscuits:
Meanwhile, in small skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until softened. Let cool.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, chili powder and salt ; stir in cheese and parsley. Blend in onion mixture. Drizzle cream over top, mixing with fork just until dough comes together and adding more cream if necessary.

Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface; knead about 10 times. Roll out to 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness. Using 2-1/4-inch (5.5 cm) round cookie cutter, cut out circles; arrange over ribs.

Bake, uncovered in 450°F (230°C) oven for about 15 minutes or until biscuits are puffed and no longer doughy underneath.
