“This recipe from Canadian Living is not as spicy as you would think. I myself can't eat real spicy foods but I managed these quite well. You can marinate them from 8 to 24 hours. Marinating time is part of the preparation time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the oregano, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, pepper and garlic.
  2. Add the beef ribs and toss to coat.
  3. Refrigerate from 8 to 24 hours.
  4. Place the ribs in a roasting pan.
  5. Cover and roast in a 350 degree F oven until the meat is tender enough to fall off the bone, 2 to 2-1/2 hours.
  6. Transfer to a plate.
  7. Skim the fat from the pan juices, reserving 1 tablespoon fat for the sauce.
  8. Set the pan juices aside.

  10. Add the pan juices, chipotle peppers, brown sugar, lime juice, adobo sauce, tomato paste and salt.
  11. Simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.
  12. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.
