Pineapple Glazed Short Ribs

This terrific recipe comes from Canadian Beef.  The beef is marinated in pineapple juice which is then boiled and turned into a glaze to flavour the meat while it grills.

I've been trying out different kinds of organic and natural beef.  I found some "Miami-style" short ribs.  They are also called Korean-style or flanken-cut ribs, sliced thin through the bone and good for grilling.  

Here's what you need:

1 pound short ribs
1 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 an inch ginger, peeled and grated
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
sprinkle of hot chili flakes

Combine all the ingredients in a freezer bag and marinate the ribs in the refrigerator overnight.  

Remove the ribs from the marinade and bring to a boil in a small pot. Simmer over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes until reduced by half.

Grill the ribs, turning often and basting with the marinade for about 6-7 minutes total.

I grilled some cored pineapple sprinkled with cayenne pepper alongside.  

I also boiled some peeled sweet potatoes, then mashed them with some butter and a little more pineapple juice.  

The marinade and glaze was delicious on these ribs.  They're quick and easy to prepare and taste great!
