Slow Cooker Instructions

For the Sauce

To Serve

1

Cut the rack into single ribs. Season the beef generously with salt.

2

Seal the short ribs, on all sides, on a hot frying pan or BBQ plate. Once sealed, nestle them into a slow cooker and place to one side.

3

Pour the sugar into the frying pan and begin to caramelise it, watching closely to ensure it doesn’t burn.

4

When the sugar begins to caramelise in parts, add the red wine vinegar, soy sauce, ginger and garlic. Bring to the boil.

5

When the sugar is dissolved, add back the toasted spices and pour this liquid over the short ribs.
