Ingredients 10
Servings 8-10 mini burgers
Time 20 min


  • 750
    beef short ribs
  • 1
    onion, quartered
  • 2
    garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2
    bay leaves
  • 1
    store-bought dough

    white or black sesame seeds (optional)
  • 125
    sticky braai sauce of your choice
  • 125
    sweet chilli sauce
  • handful fresh microherbs


1 1/2 hours

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease two baking sheets with nonstick spray.


1. Add the ribs, onion, garlic and bay leaves to a saucepan. Cover with water and boil for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until soft. Remove from the heat then remove the bones from the ribs.


2. In the meantime, lightly knead the dough then form 8-10 walnut- sized balls. Arrange on one of the prepared baking sheets, brush with butter and sprinkle the sesame seeds over, if using. Allow to rise for 30 minutes. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until done. Set aside to cool.

To finish

3. Turn up the temperature to 200°C. Cover the ribs with the braai sauce and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Grill for 10-15 minutes or until slightly charred and sticky – the ribs can also be braaied over coals if preferred.

4. Trim the ribs to the size of the rolls. Cut open the rolls, spread with chilli sauce and top with the microherbs and ribs.
