Spicy, Sweet and Sour Beef Short Ribs.......Oh My!!!!
One of my favorite dishes right now. I find when there is something that I like to eat, making it a few times and with a few different flavours really allows me to refine and get the most out of the dish.
For this one the short ribs were seasoned with just salt and then into a pan that will allow me to sear them and make the dish a "one pot meal". I don't have a dishwasher and the less dishes the better in my world.
Making sure there is lots of colour on these before the ingredients for the sauce is added. Also, don't let the pan get too dark or you will have a burnt flavour...unless you are going for that!
Don't touch the meat until it is cooled right down or it will fall apart in your hands. The fat need to harden up so that you can put a glaze on it. Once cooled the meat was removed and the rest was strained to make into a sauce. All I added at this point was a bit of salt and 2tbsp of honey. The was heated up again and tasted to make sure the balance was right for my taste to be put on as a glaze for the beef ribs.
Have a great day!
