  • 4 carrots,chopped
  • 2 leeks, rinsed well,chopped
  • 1 1/2kg bone-in beef short ribs, fat trimmed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 120ml reduced-sodium beef stock
  • 80ml sherry
  • 60ml reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tbsps honey
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh ginger

  • 380g instant brown rice
  • 10g chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 1-2 chopped spring onions
  • 2 tbsps minced pickled jalapeno peppers
  • 1 tsp lime zest


Heat a large Dutch oven or casserole or electric slow cooker with a tight-fitting lid and arrange the carrots and leeks on the bottom. Season the ribs all over with salt and pepper and place over the vegetables. In a medium bowl whisk together the stock, sherry, soy sauce, honey, vinegar, ginger and garlic. Pour the mixture over the ribs. Cover and braise for 3-4 hours. This can also be done in a slow cooker; just cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Cook the rice according to the package directions. While the rice is still hot, stir in the coriander, spring onions, jalapeno peppers and lime zest. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Serve the slow cooked ribs and vegetables with the rice.
