Talking Mongo's Red Curry Beef Short Ribs...

We have a "Go Indian" themed Thowdown going on over in the TD section:

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=157822

If you've never seen, voted on or better yet a participated in a Throwdown you are missing out on a ton of fun. Please stop by and give it a look see.

Here's my humble entry for this category. Let's start off saying that I do realize that the dominant religion in India is Hinduism, so beef ribs would go over like a turd in a punchbowl. Since I'm not Indian, and not Hindu, I'm going to ask for a hall pass on this cook. With that in mind, I present Mongo's Indian Red Curry Beef Short Ribs...


First off, start with about four pounds of beef shorties...

Seasoned up with a little S&P and onto the Traeger for 3-4 hours of smoke...

In the meantime, assemble the ingredients for the red curry sauce...

Saute the shallots...

Add the ginger and garlic...

Add the red curry paste, fish sauce and water...

And finish it off with the coconut milk...

In the meantime, the shorties have been smoking along nicely...

After a good dose of smoke, some shrinkage from the bone and about 160 internal, I pull them off...

Then add them to the red curry sauce and put them back on the Traeger to braise for a couple more hours...

After a couple more hours they are probing like buttah...

Once the ribs were done, I wrapped them in foil and set them aside to hold. I then strained the sauce, skimmed the fat, added lime zest and juice and reduced it down to thicken. Keeping with the theme, the ribs are served up with Indian style carrot and spice infused basmati rice, as well as Gufarti (Indian style green beans)...

Please use the pic below for the money shot...


I know this is not authentic Indian cuisine, and Buccs is probably chitting a brick with me calling it curry. But the truth is we totally enjoyed it which is all that really matters.

Thanks in advance for the zero...

That is a farkin' great entry for the Thai throwdown. I can't wait for the voting thread to show up!

(Seriously, I was thinking of currying my brisket, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it -- checked my insurance and didn't see a "Shiva strikes you down with a lightning bolt" clause, so thought I'd play it safe. )

1 tablespoon whole black mustard seeds
4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 freshly ground black pepper
1 hot, dried red chili

I heard from a highly educated, well traveled individual and was advised of the following:

"The Indians were tremendous traders and went along the Asian and African coast for many centuries. You see many of the same dishes throughout the region with little difference. Other than the use of beef, the only other thing that would suggest this is a Thai recipe is the fish sauce. Lime is one of the dominant flavors in Thai food (as is coconut milk), but both may be included in Indian curries as well. I've not heard of fish sauce being used in Indian cuisine, but I wouldn't be surprised, especially with the trading and influences. There is a tremendous amount of variation in cuisines, especially Indian."

This is obviously a classic case of "even a blind squirrel finds and acorn every now and then"...
