I love short ribs. However, they are hard to find here in the Canadian Rockies and they are hideously expensive. A grocery flyer came around with short ribs at a price that wasn't usurious. I had to have some!
I started by making a marinade of 3/4 cup of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, a teaspoon of garlic powder and a teaspoon of dried ginger. I marinated the short ribs in the fridge for 24 hours turning them occasionally.
I took the ribs out of the marinade and put them in the fridge uncovered for an hour. I reserved the marinade to put in the foil later.
I put the ribs in the Bradley set at 240 F with bourbon oak barrel biscuits and let them cook for 3 hours.
Then I put them in a foil pan and poured the reserved marinade on them. I covered them with foil and let them go for 2 hours at 240 F.
Here they are after the 2 hours. Out of the marinade and back in the Bradley for one more hour.
The finished product.
The Verdict: I love short ribs. These were tender, moist, flavourful and just wonderful. I love short ribs. This is the first time I've tried smoking them and I was worried they wouldn't be as good as braised. I love short ribs. These were better! I love short ribs. Braised tend to fall apart but these still had bite while being tender. I love short ribs. I will make these every time I can get short ribs. Did I mention I love short ribs.
