Ingredients

1/2
cup balsamic vinegar
1/2
cup apple juice
2
tablespoons brown sugar
2
tablespoons soy sauce
2
tablespoons olive oil
1
teaspoon dry mustard
1/4
teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
3 1/2
to 4 lb. beef short ribs, trimmed
2
tablespoons chili sauce
2
tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 In 12x8-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish or large resealable food storage plastic bag, combine vinegar, apple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, oil, dry mustard and pepper; mix well. Add ribs, turning to coat. Cover dish or seal bag. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours to marinate.
  • 2 Heat gas or charcoal grill for indirect cooking as directed by manufacturer or see p. 40 (Kitchen Tip). When grill is heated, remove ribs from marinade; reserve and refrigerate marinade. Place ribs on grill directly over drip pan. Cover grill; cook 2 to 2 1/4 hours or until tender, turning occasionally.
  • 3 During last 30 minutes of cooking time, in small saucepan, combine reserved marinade and chili sauce; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 20 to 30 minutes or until slightly thickened and reduced, stirring occasionally. (Sauce will be similar to syrup.) Serve sauce with ribs. Sprinkle ribs with parsley.
