Sweet and Sticky Braised Ribs

Hello everyone and welcome back to My Uni Kitchen! I’ve been away for so long and it just tore me apart that I couldn’t give you guys anything. But with starting a new job and studying at the same time I haven’t had anytime to do anything.

However, I’m back and with something quite scrumptious you can make for Christmas this year instead of that crap and boring old roast turkey or chicken. Put this up at the centre of your table and everyone will be loving you. I used beef ribs here as they are actually relative cheap, no more than an extra pound per kilo compared to chicken, and they’re super meaty. But, if you want to use pork ribs instead, don’t worry it still works.

This is truly incredible, tasty and just melts in your mouth if you cook it right. The timing is a little long, but that’s the only way to get it so juicy, yet tender and soft at the same time. So be patient and it’ll all be worth it. Enjoy!
