    Beef Ribs - Looking for Sauce / Dip Recipe/Tips

    Hey gang - so I feel like I have my beef rib game pretty well dialed in. Long smoke over post oak, no wrap until resting, spritz after a few hours ever thirty minutes … while I love them as is, I wanted to see if this group had some good ideas for a complementary dipping sauce. I think a Kansas style thicker sauce likely too sweet when all I really want is the flavor of the beef to shine through. So am looking for something just to provide a little flavor contrast, I kinda think pickled red onion or shallot with some herbs would be a nice start but would love this erstwhile group’s views !!! TIA !

    I wouldn’t sauce day 1. I would however, use a beef gravy if serving with mashed potatoes. I like putting the meat in tortillas for leftovers so a light salsa with fresh jalapeños and onions works well.

      What about a Texas mop sauce?

        I've made this a few times and really like it with beef.

        What's it like? An Alabama white? Or horseradish based? Or what?

        It's more like an Alabama white with a little more flavor from black pepper, vinegar, and some other stuff I can't remember. Really tasty. In fact, I smoked a pork tenderloin last night and see this as a really good condiment on sliced pork tenderloin sandwiches for lunch today!

      I like this idea. If you want it to be sauce like, sauté the shallots (or not) and then blitz it all in a food processor. I'd play with mustard and Worcestershire as accents, too.

        The beef profile of short ribs is so significant that I really don’t think you need any sauce. But, if you want to try something complimentary, I think the sauce should be big and bold, too. I think I’d do a horseradish sauce and I also think I’d try an Au jus coming from the drippings off the beef ribs themselves.

          A horseradish sauce on the side is an intriguing idea. I have some Dino Ribs in the freezer that I was planning to make without sauce. but maybe if I feel adventurous that evening I'll whip up some horseradish sauce.

        I know it is probably sacrilege, but I really like A-1 steak sauce for beef ribs. Not a lot, maybe what you’re calling a dipping sauce.

          Really? A-1, Sorry it’s a bit of a joke at our house. Everyone in the family knows I don’t allow the stuff on the place. It all started several years ago when a former friend said he needed A-1 for the steak I had just grilled him. It was a gorgeous ribeye with lots of marbling. Heck that’s just on step from asking for ketchup.

          Straight off the smoker no sauce. Leftovers shredded in a sandwich, picked red onions and chipotle Mayo with some melted cheese.

            Chimichurri, a bit heavy on the acid to cut the fattiness of the ribs. Some pickled red onion. Flour tortillas, I'd probably even make the kinda puffy Tex-Mex kind for this. Yeah, I'm there for that.

              My Barrister DEW's Run Molasses Sauce is actually really good on beef. Just saying. That said, I often don't sauce beef ribs, except for back ribs which I treat basically like pork spares.

                Store bought Louisiana hot sauce. Home made would be a red pepper vinegar sauce.

                  I recently picked up some of Max Good ‘s Black Swan sauces and was very impressed with the Savory Original with beef ribs I made a week ago. Some of the best store bought sauces I’ve found so far and are very different from your mainstream bbq sauces with bolder/more complex flavors.

                    I don't think beef ribs need sauce, but, if you're serving a group of people, some will want it. You've got some good suggestions here. I've done Meathead's Texas Barbecue Juice (available on free site) and like it. It's a thinner sauce. Some guests may not be satisfied with anything but KC style--for them, I'd keep a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's on hand (or some such thing).

                    Bob Trudnak has a beef sauce out that is awesome on beef ribs and brisket. Not too thick, not too thin, full of flavor while still allowing the beef to be the star.

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
