Sticky Beef Short Ribs & Lemon Coleslaw Recipe

Sticky Beef Short Ribs & Lemon Coleslaw Recipe

To go with our special offer on  this week, here is a great recipe for sticky Beef Short Ribs and lemon coleslaw. The ribs take a couple of hours to cook so plan ahead for best results!


5 tbsp apple juice
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce
4 garlic cloves, crushed
pinch dried chilli flakes

For the coleslaw:

½ lemon, juice only
½ garlic clove, crushed
½ red cabbage, finely shredded
2 large carrots, peeled and coarsely grated
2 celery sticks, finely sliced
2 spring onions, finely sliced
salt and freshly ground black pepper



  1. To make the marinade, measure all the ingredients into a shallow dish and mix well. Add the short ribs and mix well to coat. Leave for 2 hours or overnight in the fridge, if possible, to marinate. 
  2. Preheat the oven to 150C/130C Fan/Gas 2.
  3. Transfer the ribs and the marinade into a deep ovenproof saucepan or flameproof casserole. Add 200ml/7fl oz water so only the bones are sticking above the liquid. Cover with a lid and bring up to the boil.
  4. Transfer to the oven for about 3½ hours, or until the ribs are tender. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the pan for about an hour.
  5. Line a small roasting tin with baking paper. Remove the ribs from the marinade, give them a shake and sit them on the paper in the tin.
  6. Skim the fat from the marinade in the pan and discard. Heat the marinade over a high heat until the volume of liquid has reduced by half. Pour the reduced marinade over the ribs.
  7. Heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6 and roast the ribs for about 15 minutes until dark brown and sticky. 
  8. Meanwhile, to make the coleslaw, measure the mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard and garlic into a large bowl. Mix and season well with salt and pepper. Add the cabbage, carrots, celery and spring onions and toss to coat everything well. Spoon into a serving bowl.
  9. Serve the sticky ribs alongside the coleslaw with jacket potatoes and corn on the cob.
