Chef Al’s Sticky Beef Short Ribs

Who can resist the temptation of sticky ribs? We certainly can’t and that’s why we couldn’t wait to share this recipe. In this latest cooking demo, Chef Al brings you all the tricks and techniques you’ll need to make your own Sticky Beef Short Ribs, just like our Werf restaurant chefs would.

The key to delicious and extra sticky ribs is in the marinade and our chefs have created the perfect combination. Once the ribs have cooked in the marinade to lock in the flavour, we start the reduction process. Although reducing the marinade might take some time, it is well worth the wait to get that finger-licking goodness to stick to the ribs. Plate them up with some spring onion, fresh chilli and coriander and you’ll be glad no-one’s around to see you devour these ribs!
