Recipe from: 21 September 2016
Preparation time: 35 min
Cooking time: 5-10 min


  • 2
    beef short ribs
  • 1 1/3
    dark brown sugar
  • 6
    garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2
    Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4
    tomato Sauce
  • 1
    dark beer (Castle Milk Stout works well)
  • 1/2
    malt vinegar
  • 4
    thyme sprigs, leaves picked
  • 3
    star anise


Place the ribs in a pot and cover with water. Bring the water to come up to a simmer and par cook the ribs for about 30 mins.

Whisk the sugar, garlic, sauces, beer, vinegar, thyme and star anise in a bowl.

Drain the water and pour marinade mixture over the ribs, and allow to cool and marinate for about an hour in the fridge.

Have the braai nice and hot so that the meat and marinade caramelize beautifully. As it is already cooked the ribs will probably only take about 5 – 10 mins to cook. Baste the marinade on while ribs are on the braai.

Once the ribs are done, transfer to a serving dish and add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
