Pulled Beef & Green Onion Crostini

  • Prep Time 15 min
  • Total Time 2 h 30 min
  • Makes: 32 crostini

Ingredients

  • 1½ lb beef short ribs 750 g
  • 1¼ tsp salt, divided 6 mL
  • ½ tsp pepper 2 mL
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
  • 4 cups beef broth 1 L
  • 1 baguette, cut into 32 slices, 1/2-in. (1-cm) thick, toasted
  • 1 cup plain yogourt 250 mL
  • 1 tbsp creamed horseradish 15 mL
  • ½ cup finely sliced green onions, plus 2 tbsp (30 mL) for garnish 125 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • Step 2

    Season ribs with 1 tsp (5 mL) salt and pepper. In large oven-safe saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown ribs in batches, 1 to 2 min. per side, transferring to plate. Place browned ribs back into saucepan, along with juices. Pour in beef broth; bring just to a boil over high heat. Turn off heat, cover with lid and bake in oven 2 hr., or until meat is tender and falling off the bone.

  • Step 3

    Transfer ribs to bowl; cool slightly. Skim and discard fat from juices in saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium heat 10 to 15 min., until it is a slightly thickened sauce. Meanwhile, shred beef with two forks; discarding bones. Remove sauce from heat; mix in shredded meat. (Note: beef mixture can be made ahead, cooled and stored in a sealed container in fridge up to 2 days. Reheat on stove or in microwave to proceed with recipe.)

  • Step 4

    In small bowl combine yogourt, horseradish, 1/2 cup (125 mL) green onions and remaining 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt. Top each toasted baguette slice with 1 tbsp (15 mL) warm shredded beef mixture and 1 tsp (5 mL) yogourt mixture. Sprinkle with additional green onions to serve.

Tip

To make an extra spicy yogourt sauce, use equal amount of grated fresh horseradish for creamed horseradish.
