Patagonian Barbecued Ribs

Recipes of Meats

Chilean Cooking

Ingredients serves 6

  • Beef ribs, 15-18 lbs
  • Fine salt


1 Ask the butcher to cut the ribs crosswise with a saw.

2 Sprinkle with salt and allow to rest in a cool place for 3 hours before cooking.

Grilling Technique

1 Place the vertical spit so that the ribs are exposed to the fire at a moderate temperature and roast 2 hours.

2 Once the ribs are well-browned, turn the spit 180°. Continue grilling over moderate heat 1 hour or until the layer of fat is golden and reduced.

3 The temperature should be a little lower than in the first stage as the fat burns easily.

Wine Pairing

Advice of Wine to combine

Suggest from Sommelier

Ribs are known for being very flavorful, even in this type of cooking, due to the streak of fat that runs through it. Here 1 turn to a classic wine, a 2-or 3-year old Cabernet Sauvignon reserve from Maipo with good structure and powerful tannins.
