2012 Salado Eggfest Vietnamese Beef Ribs

Vietnamese Beef Ribs

These beef ribs were a big hit in Salado this year. They cook fast and make great appetizers or a light main course.

The Ribs

This recipe uses crosscut or flanken beef ribs. The ribs are cut on a band saw across the ribs to reveal the rib cross section. Buy them sliced 1/4" thick The thin cut allows the marinade to completely penetrate the meat I have found the best ribs in Asian and Hispanic grocery stores. Asian markets are a great place to find the thick soy sauce, oyster sauce ( BTW Oyster Sauce does not contain any oysters) and fish sauce. I use Golden Boy brand fish sauce made in Thailand. The fish sauce does contain anchovies. The subtle anchovy flavor works great with grilled meat. You can also find pork ribs cut the same way. 


Marinade

This marinade recipe will marinate about 3 lbs of bone in ribs.

2 tbs minced garlic
1.5 tbs sugar
2 tbs oyster sauce
1 tbs fish sauce
1 tbs sesame oil or 1tbs sesame oil with chili oil
1 ts thick soy sauce

Prepare marinade by combining garlic, sugar,oyster sauce, fish sauce, thick soy sauce and sesame oil. The sesame oil with chili oil will put put some fire in the ribs. Put the ribs in 1 gallon zip lock bag(s) and pour enough marinade in the bag to completely cover the ribs. Refrigerate at least one hour, I do mine overnight.

The Cook

The ribs can go from the bag to a hot grill. Cook until you see a slight char on the meat and turn. The ribs only take about 5 minutes to cook.


Serving Suggestion

Serve with Peanut Sauce, Chili Sauce and Cucumber Relish.

    I didn't see them at the Fest, but I love all of the marinate ingredients, so I will try them.  Thanks!  

    I'll have to go to Ranch 99 for some thick soy sauce.  Hadn't heard of that. I have regular soy sauce, low sodium soy sauce, sweet soy sauce (Kecap Manis), black soy sauce, dark soy sauce, and light soy sauce.  I need to dedicate a whole pantry to soy sauces.

    I have about 6 different soy sauces, they all taste a bit different. 3 different fish sauces and a couple of oyster sauces.  Don't get me started on chili sauces.
    Sriracha is my favorite though.
