Asian Barbecued Short Ribs Recipe
Here in beef country, we find all sorts of different ways to serve beef. A former boss of mine, who owned a Midwestern meat plant, gave me this recipe. It was an immediate hit with my family! The soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, ginger and other seasonings make a great barbecue sauce for the ribs.
- 4 pounds bone-in beef short ribs
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 3/4 cup ketchup
- 3/4 cup water, divided

- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
