Below is a list of ingredients I recommend adding to your beef but you can get creative and try some other tasty vegetables. You should boil these in the same pot as the beef to truly enhance the flavor of the beef.


  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1 Onion, Loosely Cut
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 45 Baby Carrots


  1. Once you have chosen the right ribs for this dish, you can start off by cutting the ribs into smaller parts. Then place them into the cooking pot.
  2. Next, you need to add around 1 ½ liters of water to your pot, or until all of the ribs are fully submerged by about 2 centimeters in the water. Then, you can cover your pot and place on medium-high heat until the water has boiled.
  3. As soon as the water has begun to boil, this is when you should add the vegetables and seasonings. The blend of extra vegetables and spices will help to elevate the taste creating a solid base to your delicious ribs
  4. Give your mixture a good stir and then let your dish simmer for 30 to 45 minutes. This is the optimal length of time for the texture of your meat to tenderize and complete the cooking process. The meat may not be to your desired texture yet because it still needs to be baked
  5. Next, you can drain the liquid from the beef, keeping the vegetables in the pot. You may want to transfer your ribs now to a baking or grilling tray.
  6. Next, you can coat your ribs with store-bought BBQ sauce with some brown sugar if you want to add a caramelized flavor. You can also try some other types of coatings, such as mustard and thyme. 
  7. Next, pop your ribs on the grill or in the oven for 10 minutes, making sure to rotate. Cook to your desired level of crispiness. Serve
