Expert Tips

You can also use a crockpot to prepare this recipe; set on high heat for five hours, or low heat for eight hours.

This tempting dish is prepared by slowly cooking short ribs over low heat with a rico combination of beer, garlic, cumin, onion, tomato and other seasonings. The goal of this recipe is to leave you with tender ribs full of sabor, with a preparation that’s simple and easy. All that’s required is a little patience as the ribs will take some time to cook, but afterwards the meat will be so soft it will practically fall of the bone. In my opinion, these types of dishes are much tastier when they are prepared with meat still on the bone-it adds extra flavor while cooking. But if you don’t really like bones in your meal, as in the case of my husband and kids, this recipe can be adapted to use a bone-less cut of meat to keep them happy. When serving, I like to accompany these ribs with white rice to soak up all that deliciosa salsa.

Directions

  • 1 First blend the onion, garlic, cumin, achiote, cilantro, salt, pepper and one cup of beer in a food processor or blender. Then coat the ribs with the blended sauce and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours, or preferably overnight.
  • 2 Separately, heat the oil in a large pot and add the ribs together with the remaining beer, beef broth and tomato sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  • 3 Afterward, reduce the heat and let simmer for four hours or until the meat is tender and the sauce has reduced. While cooking, you can leave the pot partially covered with a lid.
  • 4 Remember to stir the mixture occasionally and adjust the seasoning as desired. When ready, serve each portion and sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro.
