Black Angus beef Country-Style Ribs are naturally rich and juicy. Slow cooked with beef broth, the ribs become incredibly tender, ensuring each bite is succulent and satisfying. 

To make the glaze, begin with a base of red onion and jalapeños, which infuse the ribs with a robust, spicy kick. Cherry tomatoes add a touch of sweetness and acidity, enhancing the overall flavor profile of the dish and keeping the recipe fresh and vibrant.  

Olive oil creates a smooth, luscious texture, melding the flavors beautifully. Packed cilantro adds a burst of freshness, balancing the heat from the jalapeños and the sweetness from the honey. 

Honey provides a sticky, sweet contrast to the spicy jalapeños. This sweetness is complemented by a smoky hint of paprika, which adds depth and complexity to the dish. Garlic powder enhances the recipe, ensuring a well-rounded and delicious experience. These ingredients are charred first in a hot pan, pureed in a blender and ready to be spread over the ribs.
