A local Mexican restaurant makes fairly tasty Caldo de res (beef soup), but I ran across some nice looking beef ribs and wanted to make a pot at home.

The beef short ribs...

picked up some corn...

started by lightly smoking the beef ribs and onions in the drum..

then added a pot of tatoes, garlic and beef stock to the drum..

when the beef ribs had enough smoke and color, I added them to the pot of tatoes.. and let em go til tender...

The ribs were nice and tender...

Next came the cabbage...

corn and summer squash.. (cause I had the squash on hand)

I let them simmer til tender...

added cilantro, salt, pepper, a bit of mexican oregano, I think that was about it.

topped with onions and supper was ready.

The rib meat was tender and the broth came out very rich.
I hit it with some fresh squeezed lime juice and chili lime hot sauce..

The pot took on the smoke well, I was happy with the outcome. I'll be making it again in the future. :grin:

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful work. Short ribs make excellent stew, and oxtails are even better.

Yeah, probably beef shank or maybe chuck.

Thanks Josh! I love oxtails too! :grin:

I bet you're right Ron, I think they might use shank. The meat isn't very tender but their soup is tasty. :grin:

Thanks Greg! It was pretty flavorful. The restaurant adds cooked carrots to theirs but I don't really like them cooked. lol

Wonderful looking cook and presentation Jeanie, thank you for sharing.

I'm always amazed at how clean your Cowgirl grate is, looks like a new grate every cook and always wanted to ask if it's plate steel or cast iron?

Supposed to be a tad breezy today. Winds to 80mph.
A bowl sure would calm the stormy winds.

Thank you Kevin! The grate is made from 3/16" steel. I treat it like cast iron though. I brush it off, heat it up and oil it while it's hot to keep the seasoning going. I really love the thing!
It's taken from a pic of me sitting in my camp chair by the fire. This is it when it was new. :grin:

Thanks Adams! It's really whippin' today! Rocks in my pockets aren't handling it. lol So far I've lost two tables from the back deck. I'll wait til tomorrow to see what damage has been done.
Hope you're not golfing! lol

Thank you Hawkeye! The broth at the local restaurant is on the thin side too. I think the smoked beef ribs and beef broth added a lot of flavor to the pot. Hope you make it sometime! :grin:

Thanks so much Greg! Very kind of you! I did have a hot tortilla and a cold beer. Not sure why I forgot to take a pic. Guess I was too hungry! lol :grin:
Hope all is well on your end of the world!

Thank you Bill! I really liked the beef ribs. They were so tender. I'll use them again in the next pot. :grin:

Dang it, I hope you and family are keeping warm! Quite the weather moving through! I tried rocks in my pockets to keep from blowing away but they weren't enough. lol Thanks Clay! :grin:

Love the colors, especially as we consider easing into Spring (though it snowed here a bit this morning :shock:).

Hope this finds you well and recovering from the crazy winds that hit us all in the last 36.

Jeanie,

You have never failed to amaze me with your cooks......we never know what direction you're going to come from next. :-D

Your cooks and photos are beyond pale........and you truly do rock.

I'll have to look up new words for "killer" for you. You set the bar here really high.

Awesome, Jeanie! :thumb:

I still want to try your friend from Guam's brisket jerky cook one of these days. That looked so good and so different.
