Cured Short Ribs

Cured Short Ribs
Recipe type: Appetizer
  • 2 to 3 whole short rib racks
  • ¼ cup of salt
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • Any spices you want to add
  1. Rub two to three whole short rib racks with a quarter cup of salt and sugar.
  2. Add any spices you may want (such as fennel or cumin seed) in a large lexan overnight. I like to also add a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes.
  3. In the morning, rinse the ribs, dry them and place the uncut racks in a 450 F oven for 45 minutes.
  4. Then turn the oven off and keep inside for another 30 minutes.
  5. Remove, check for doneness and refrigerate.
  6. When cool, cut and strip each rib of all the meat with the back of the knife by rubbing down each rib.
  7. Pull any small bone from the ribs.
  8. Place rib bones in a 450 F oven and remove just before a golden brown.
  9. Refrigerate.
  10. Cut the rib meat in to ¼- to ½-inch chunks like pulled pork.
