Argentinian-Style Ribs


These Argentinian-style short ribs are heavily coated with salt to bring out the fat. At first glance, you'll say "Whoa, that's way too salty!" But give them a try! This quick and easy recipe is one of the best I've ever tried.

  • 6 pounds beef short ribs

  • 1 cup coarse salt, or as needed

  • 6 medium limes, cut in wedges


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  2. Coat ribs heavily with salt.

  3. Cook on the preheated grill until meat pulls away easily from the bone, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C).

  4. Transfer ribs to a large glass serving dish and squeeze lime wedges over top. Serve immediately.
