Spiced Ginger Short Ribs {Pass the Cookbook}
It's Pass the Cookbook time again...this was all started by Kita, the culinary force  Pass the Sushi blog. This month we had the option of cooking one of three recipes from Sunny's Kitchen: Easy Food for Real Life by Sunny Anderson: Loaded Puff Pastry Sticky Buns, Spicy Macaroni and Cheese, and - the recipe I decided to adapt - Honey BBQ Short Ribs. Here's my...

Spiced Ginger Short Ribs

1/4 cup sweet paprika
1 T smoked paprika
1 T garlic powder
1 T freshly ground pink Himalaya salt
1/2 t cumin
1 crushed tepin chile pepper
freshly ground black pepper
3 pounds bone-in short ribs
1/2 C ginger syrup


Combine the paprikas, garlic powder, salt, cumin, tepin pepper, and a few grinds of black pepper in a small bowl.

Rub the mixture all over the short ribs and let rest for no longer than 2 hours at room temperature. 

Preheat the oven to 275°F.

In an baking dish, place the short ribs with the fat side facing up.

Cover tightly with foil and place in the oven.

Roast low and slow for about 2 1/2 – 3 hours until the meat is falling off the bones.

Remove from the oven and, using tongs, flip the short ribs, coating them a bit in their own juices.  Drizzle the short ribs evenly with the ginger syrup and re-cover with aluminum foil, taking care to vent one corner a bit. 

Place back in the oven and roast for 30 minutes more.

Serve with a green salad and enjoy!


  1. The ribs look good! I bet they'd be great served with the mac and cheese too ;-)

  2. Ribs look awesome! I made the mac and cheese, but I may have to make these this weekend!

  3. Oooh... these look so good! The ribs looked the most intimidating of all the recipes, so I didn't make it. Kicking myself now! ;-)

  4. Sounds really tasty, I bet the flavor from the ginger syrup is wonderful! My man would have really loved this too :) cheers glad to meet you!

  5. I had such a hard time picking this month. Your ribs looks like they would warm you right up from the inside out.

  6. What a great adaptation. I love the warm and perfect for fall.

  7. Man I could go for some short ribs tonight.. super cozy.
