Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 to 2 pounds beef Country-Style Ribs, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup mirin
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili garlic sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar or honey
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • Minced fresh chives (optional)

Cooking:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Combine mirin, water, sweet chili garlic sauce, agave nectar, brown sugar and ginger in stockpot over medium heat stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves. Place beef ribs in stockpot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly.

  2. Remove beef; keep warm. Skim fat from cooking liquid. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and cook 12 to 15 minutes or until sauce is reduced by half. Stir in lime juice and soy sauce. Return beef to cooking liquid; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

  3. Sprinkle beef with chives, if desired. Serve with remaining sauce for dipping, if desired.
