Ingredients

For the harissa sauce

  • 3 onions, chopped
  • 1 Cup salt
  • 2 Ounces dried arbol chiles
  • 2 Ounces dried pasilla chiles
  • 3 Tablespoons ground cumin
  • 3 Tablespoons ground coriander
  • 1 star anise, ground
  • 2 cloves
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 Cup lemon juice
  • 4 Cups blended olive oil

For the ribs

  • 6 Pounds beef short ribs, or three pounds boneless beef short ribs
  • Salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Oil, as needed

Directions

For the harissa sauce

In a large bowl, toss the onions with the salt. Place the salted onions in a strainer and drain overnight. 

Re-hydrate the arbol and pasilla chiles in simmering water until soft. Remove from water and pat dry. 

Mix all of the ingredients except for the oil in a food processor. Once combined, slowly add oil as if you were preparing a vinaigrette.

For the ribs

Heat the grill to about 325 degrees or medium-low heat. 

Season the ribs with salt, pepper, and oil. Grill the ribs until the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees, about 10-12 minutes per side. 

Lightly brush the harissa sauce on all sides of the ribs. Turn off grill and let ribs sit for 20 minutes on grill, with the top closed.Heat the grill to about 325 degrees or medium-low heat.

BBQ Shopping Tip

To add lots of flavor without a whole lot of fuss, try purchasing some steak seasoning.

BBQ Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
