BBQ RUB Beef Ribs with fresh herbed salsa verde

This recipe is an added bonus to roasting Beef Ribs. You end up with a great rich meat just falling apart topped with a fresh sauce that cuts through the richness.

Beef Rib an excellent piece of meat to use on the BBQ or smoker as it carries great fat and flavour that will be kind to those new to bbq and always give you fantastic results. The team loves using Sally Sweet and Spicy BBQ Rub from Harvey’s Kitchen on Beef Ribs as it gives a great sweetness and spice to blend with the Rib juices and fats.
