1.5-3kg Beef Short Ribs
Pinch of salt
Pinch of black pepper
2 tbsp Gourmet Direct wholegrain mustard
3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1/2 cup Aromatics Ol Smokey barbecue sauce
500-750ml red wine

1-2 litres beef stock

GARLIC AIOLI MASH (Mash serves 4, double to serve 8)
1-2kg Agria potatoes
6 tbsp garlic aioli
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp milk
Pinch of salt
Pinch of black pepper

Preheat a large high sided dish over high heat with oil.
Season trimmed beef ribs with a good amount of salt and pepper.
Sear beef ribs in a dish for around 2-3 minutes each side to sufficiently brown around all sides of the meat.
Cook down garlic for a few minutes before adding red wine and cooking for another 5 minutes.
Add BBQ sauce and 1-2 litres of beef stock – adjusting the beef stock requirement to leave the ribs exposed depending on your dish size.
Cover dish with lid or foil and transfer to an oven set to 160°C (320°F) for 5 hours or until beef is tender and falling away from the bone.

Prepare the beef by patting dry with a paper towel and removing the top fat cap from the meat. Coat the meat with American mustard before seasoning well with coarse ground salt and coarse ground pepper. Set smoker to 135°C (275°F) and cook ribs for 8-10 hours spritzing with water every hour, removing them when they are tender and have a soft marshmallow feel.

While the beef is cooking, peel the potatoes, dice into 3cm pieces, place in a pot and cover with water.
Boil over medium-high heat for 10-20 minutes, or until tender. A knife should easily slide through the pieces.
Drain the potatoes well, then return them to the pot and add the Best Foods Garlic Aioli, butter, milk and salt and pepper to taste.
Mash the potatoes until all the ingredients are well combined, then beat briefly with a whisk until potatoes are smooth and creamy.

Serve the beef ribs on a bed of rich creamy garlic mash, with your favourite vegetable sides.
