1

Preheat the oven to 170°C/gas mark 3

Place a lidded casserole dish large enough to hold the ribs over a medium heat, and add a dash of oil. Once the oil is hot, add the onion and a pinch of salt. Cook the onion over a medium heat until soft, 10-15 minutes

  • 1 dash of neutral oil
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • salt to taste
3

Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant and soft. This should be about a minute or so

4

Add the coriander seeds, cumin seeds and five spice then cook for another minute. Take care not to burn the spices and add another dash of oil if necessary

5

Add the stock, followed by the short ribs, star anise, soy sauce, vinegar and some salt and the white pepper. Put the lid on and transfer to the oven for 3 hours, 30 minutes, or until the ribs are tender (the exact cooking time will vary depending on size and shape of the ribs)

6

After the ribs have been cooking for 2 hours 30 minutes, add the prunes and top up with more stock if needed

  • 175g of prunes
  • 250ml of beef stock

Serve the short ribs garnished with the herbs, red chilli and spring onion
