Slow-cooked beef ribs, marinated or glazed with a bit of honey or maple syrup, and finished with sauerkraut mixed with tiny bits of pickled jalapeños make a deeply satisfying meal on a cold winter day.

Ingredients

  • 1,6 kg beef ribs (one piece)
  • 2 tbsp Vegeta
  • 3 tbsp cooking oil
  • 800 g sauerkraut
  • 1 beefstock cube
  • 25 ml cooking oil
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 2 pickled jalapeños
  • salt
  • ground black pepper

Preparation

    Drizz the beef ribs with Vegeta. Pour oil on to coat them on all sides. Wrap in tin foil and transfer to a roasting tray. Let stand for about 30 minutes. Pop the roasting tray into the oven and slowly bake at 160 °C for 2.5 hours.
  2. 2.
    Meanwhile, rinse the sauerkraut and add to a pot of boiling water flavoured with one beefstock cube. Cook for 40 minutes.
  3. 3.
    Drain the cooking water, add oil, bay leaf and finely chopped jalapeños to the sauerkraut, season with salt and pepper to taste, and toss well.
