Easy Savory Oven-Roasted Short Ribs


Amazingly delicious and tender! These Oven-Roasted Savory Short Ribs are so easy to make. Make a double batch and remove the extra meat to make sandwiches that are out of this world! This is one versatile meat that you can use to make numerous dishes. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp cumin
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp fresh garlic, finely chopped
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp red chili flakes
4 pounds of short ribs, cut into 4 slabs

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 200˚F. Rinse the slabs and pat them dry. Combine the brown sugar, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, garlic powder, salt, cayenne and pepper in a large mixing bowl.

Center a slab of the ribs on a large piece of tin foil. Pat the spice rub over the ribs, rubbing it in on all sides. Place the ribs meat-side down on the foil and fold tightly into a packet. Repeat for the remaining slabs.

Place the packets on a baking sheet and put it in the oven. Bake the ribs for 4 hours, then reduce the heat to 175˚F and bake for 2 more hours, or until a fork easily penetrates the meat.
Open the packets and pour the juices into a saucepan. Bring the juices to a simmer over medium heat and reduce by about half, until they cling to a spoon. Skim the fat off the top and adjust seasonings.

Place the ribs, uncovered, in the broiler on high for 3-5 minutes, or until they have charred slightly. Drizzle the sauce over them, then serve.
