Beef Ribs in Strawberry Chipotle Barbeque Sauce
you are looking for one of those savory-sweet,
make-a-mess-when-eating-it-and-enjoy-everysecond- of-it recipes, this
is the one for you. Open your Sangiovese and let it breathe while these
ribs cook. The sweet and tangy flavors from the sauce and the sweet
fruitiness of the strawberries work together to pull the nuances of
strawberry fruit from the wine while the fattiness from the ribs is a
worthy counterpart to the acid of the wine. Sit down with ribs and Sangiovese in hand and enjoy with a napkin nearby.
2 racks of beef ribs

1 tsp salt

oven to 350 degrees. Trim ribs if necessary. Then toss into a large
bowl and drizzle with soy sauce and rub with salt and pepper. Place the
ribs on a foil lined pan. Seal with more foil and place in the oven.
Bake for about 1 ½ to 2 hours until fork tender. Make the sauce while
they cook. Remove top foil and cover with sauce. Turn on the broiler
and broil until sauce is caramelized. Turn over and repeat. Make sure
your caramelizing leaves a little char to the sauce.Strawberry Chipotle Barbeque Sauce

½ tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp BBQ Sauce of your choice (like Masterpiece or Heinz, nothing too exciting)
all the ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Cook on low for about 45
minutes stirring occasionally until strawberries have broken down.
