Honey BBQ Oven Cooked Short Ribs

2.5 kilos short ribs, flanken-cut (roughly 6 ribs, bone-in, cut into 5-6 inch strips)

32g  sweet paprika
32g cup cayenne pepper

½ tsp cumin

½ cup honey

1 tbs onion powder

2 tbs dry oregano

2 tbs garlic powder

Kosher/coarse salt

Freshly ground black pepper

  • Heat oven to 180C
  • In a small bowl combine paprika, 4 tsp salt, onion powder, oregano, garlic powder, cayenne, oregano, cumin, and a few grinds of black pepper.
  • Rub above mixture all over ribs
  • Ribs should sit at room temperature with rub-on for 1 or 2 hours (no more than this)
  • Place ribs in an oven dish, fat side up.
  • Cover tightly with foil
  • You can cover with another dish, tray, or pan to ensure the foil seal stays in place.
  • Cook for 2.5 hours
  • Remove from oven
  • Increase the heat of the oven to 220C
  • Flip ribs over
  • Drizzle the honey over the top of the ribs
  • Put ribs back in the oven uncovered for 10-15 more minutes
  • Remove and serve

We suggest serving these over garlic and rosemary mash potato, whipped celeriac and sweet potato mash, or even spicy potato wedges. Don’t forget your veg - try some grilled asparagus! Just lay some asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle with oil, sprinkle some salt and pepper over top, and pop in the oven for the last 10-15 minutes of baking your short ribs.
