This is a special recipe from guest blogger and longtime Nomiku supporter, @robq who said this is one his favorite dishes to make sous vide. Here’s what he had to say:
I usually prefer my ribs with sauce that is more on the savory versus sweet…I thought a Japanese take on beef rib BBQ using a modified miso recipe from Nobu Matsuhisa’s famous miso black cod dish would be perfect. The heat from the red chili flake counters the sweetness of the miso, and together with the beefy-ness of the ribs, creates a well-balanced rack!
As you know, sous viding the beef ribs gives you a melting, medium-rare rib that no other method of cooking can create. Finishing off the rib on high heat creates a thin, crispy crust emphasizing the balance of texture and flavor.
I’d recommend topping off with some flash-fried green onion ribbons for presentation, extra flavor and texture.“
