Brazilian-Style Beef Ribs
1 (3 pound) rack of whole beef ribs (not short ribs). 2 tablespoons sea salt
or more if needed. 1 cup water
Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
Place the rack of beef ribs in front of you on a work surface with the shiny white membrane facing up.
Slip the blade of a sharp knife under the membrane at one end, and slice the membrane off the meat in a single piece, if possible.
Discard the chewy membrane.
Rub the ribs thoroughly with sea salt, front and back.
Place the ribs onto a cooking rack in a roasting pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until very tender, about 6 hours.
Lightly baste the beef with water (use beef broth if you prefer) after the first 1 hours, being careful not to dislodge the salt.
Baste again every 45 minutes to 1 hour; after 6 hours of total cooking time, remove from oven and allow to rest 10 to 15 minutes before slicing up into servings.
