Steal His Heart With A Decadent Sticky Ribs Recipe

These rib fingers are seriously delicious, and messy! The addition of charred asian greens gives the dish the right amount of freshness. Just make sure everyone is wearing a bib or there are plenty of napkins to go around. This tasty recipe is from Jack’s Creek, who have been awarded the World’s Best Steak producer accolade for the second consecutive year. Trust us when we say this is a man approved meal to master.

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 2 hours
Skill: Medium (Not your first rib outing)
Serves: 4


1kg Beef Rib Fingers
Pinch of Salt Pinch of Pepper
1 Tbsp All spice 1/4 Cup Tamarind Pulp, roughly chopped
1/2 Cup Honey 2 Tsp Ginger, grated
1/4 Cup Lemon Juice 1 tsp Chill Powder
2 Coriander, fresh-stalks, leaves kept
2 tsp Sesame Seeds

For the Greens
1 Tbsp tsp Sesame Oil
3 tsp Tamari/Soy sauce
3 Bunches of Bok Choy, ends removed
1/2 Cup Lemon Juice


1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees C.

2. In a bowl season the fingers with salt, pepper and all spice. Place them in a rack on a large roasting pan filled with an 2cm of water. Cover with foil and cook for 1 1/2 hours or until flesh can easily be pierced with a knife. Set aside to rest.

3. For the glaze, in a small saucepan on medium heat combine the pulp with 2 tablespoons of boiling water, bring to a boil, then turn heat to low and allow liquid to marry and slightly thicken for 20 minutes. Turn heat back to medium add the honey, ginger and chilli powder, bring to the boil and reduce glaze to 1/2 cup of a sauce. Take off the heat and stir in the lemon juice and finely chopped coriander stalks.

4. Fire up the BBQ or griddle pan to piercing hot and brush the glaze on all sides of the rib fingers (I like to give the meat a bit of extra love) and cook for 2-3 minutes or until slightly charred, being sure to constantly based with the sexy glaze.

5. For the greens, mix the oil, tamari/soy sauce and Bok Choy in a bowl then char on the BBQ for 1-2 minutes or until wilted. Drizzle over lemon juice and set onto a plate.

6. Finish by serving the ribs on a board. Drizzle with the final dripping of the glaze, sprinkle with sesame seeds and coriander leaves. Serve with the charred greens.
