Directions

1

Roast the bones and spices

Separate the meat from short rib bones. In base of MicroPro® Grill, place beef bones, onion, ginger, cinnamon stick and star anise. Cover in grill position and microwave at full power for 15 minutes or until charred and caramelized.

2

Make the broth

At the end of cooking time, deglaze by adding water and scraping all food and veggie pieces from base of MicroPro® Grill. Transfer everything to 1-qt./1 L Micro Pitcher and cover in “open” position (cover sideways). Microwave on full power for 10 minutes. At the end of cooking time, strain broth and discard veggies, bones and spices.

3

Finish it off

To the finished broth, add remaining sauces and stir to combine. Distribute into two bowls and serve with toppings* of choice. Serve hot.

 

*Thinly cut beef can be seared before adding as a topping or if cut thinly enough it will cook within the broth. The broth must be 200° F/94° C for the meat to cook.
