Whenever I go to Brazil I must eat at a Brazilian churrascaria and have some beef ribs. The meat is so tender and flavorful, it's hard to believe it's only seasoned with salt. Here's my version of Brazilian-Style Beef Ribs, enjoy!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
  2. Place the rack of beef ribs in front of you on a work surface with the shiny white membrane facing up. Slip the blade of a sharp knife under the membrane at one end, and slice the membrane off the meat in a single piece, if possible. Discard the chewy membrane. Rub the ribs thoroughly with sea salt, front and back. Place the ribs onto a cooking rack in a roasting pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until very tender, about 6 hours. Lightly baste the beef with water (use beef broth if you prefer) after the first 1 1/2 hours, being careful not to dislodge the salt. Baste again every 45 minutes to 1 hour; after 6 hours of total cooking time, remove from oven and allow to rest 10 to 15 minutes before slicing up into servings.

I am Brazilian and had done it so many times. But a bit different . No add water. I put two sheets of aluminum foil on the counter and spice the rib there. wraps up and seal well. Take to roast , turning every hour. Them take off the aluminum foil and let it turn brown. Easy and delicious.

I was looking for a basic beef rib recipe, and came across this one. I already had the beef ribs and wasn't able to remove the white membrane, so I just left it on. I only have to cook them for about 5 hours though, which i'm blaming the altitude we live in. I followed the directions and the ribs came out perfect. The "Sea Salt" wasn't specified to being fine, medium, or coarse. I only had fine sea salt, and the ribs were a tinge on the salty side. But I think next time I will go with Coarse. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! The ribs came out extremely tender & tasty

Incredibly good for being so easy to prepare. Hubby has mentioned this dish several times since I made it and wants it to be a regular because of the versatility with the finished meat. I used a boneless chuck style rib as that was what we had on hand and they were delicious. I made a full pan so we were able to eat them several ways. Plain out of the pan with au gratin potatoes and salad. Leftover reheated brushed with barbeque sauce and mac-n-cheese on the side. A third lunch meal of toasted sourdough bread sandwiches with the meat shredded topped with muenster cheese along with pan drippings/broth for dipping. Will keep using this low slow cooking method for tenderness and flavor!
