How to Make Apple & Cinnamon Rib

by Karin Siöö

As you know by now we're really into rib, and this dish is no exception. My co-workes said it smelled delicious when I brought this in my lunch box. Go ahead and make it & let me know what you think!


  • 999 Grams Rib (no bones)
  • 2 Teaspoons Salt
  • ½ Teaspoons Black pepper
  • 2 Small apples
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • 3 Tablespoons Tomato paste
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 300 Milliliters Red wine
  • 600 Milliliters Water
  • 2 Stock cubes (chicken)
  • 2 Teaspoons Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon (begin with less & taste)
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2 Apples
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    The supplies list contains enough of each ingredients based on 1kg meat, however, we bought 2 kg and consequently used more of everything else (if you think it looks like a lot, which it was...).

    Step 2

    The original recipe (based on 1 kg of meat) serves 4 people.

    Step 3

    This was one of the pieces of meat.

    Step 4

    In total we had 2100 g of meat, but it always becomes less after removing some fat.

    Step 5

    Fry the meat, it takes a while to fry that much meat so see to that you have time to cook this.

    Step 6

    When you have browned at least half of the meat you're using;

    Step 7

    Slice the apples and add them, along with the garlic & the tomato paste to a big pot.

    Step 8

    You want the tomato paste to almost turn brown without burning.

    Step 9

    When the meat is prepped, add it to your pot/pan.

    Step 10

    Add water and stir.

    Step 11

    Aldo add stock cubes or similar.

    Step 12

    Stir again.

    Step 13

    Add the wine.

    Step 14

    Put the lid on and boil for at least 2 hours but preferably longer. And, yes, I'm very happy about welcoming a Le Creuset to our kitchen 😀

    Step 15

    Check every now and then that it doesn't burn.

    Step 16

    Don't worry about that it looks watery; once it cools down it becomes much thicker, and the taste is so much richer the following day. That's why it's worth to make a big batch so you have plenty 😀

    Step 17

    Before serving, peel another 3 apples..

    Step 18

    ...and fry them in some butter.

    Step 19

    Taste the meat, then add the sugar and cinnamon (and possibly more salt).

    Step 20

    Before serving sprinkle some freshly chopped parsley on top.

    Step 21

    Serve with boiled potatoes, the buttery apples and perhaps some boiled vegetables.
