Cheetos covered beef ribs

Cheetos covered beef ribs

I found fast-food style beef ribs. These are the ribs closest to the backbone and are much thinner than your usual short ribs placed lower on the cow.
Because I want these ribs treated as fast food, I coated them in crushed Cheetos. You’ll be surprised about the cheesy crunch that you get on the ribs. This combination makes a unique flavour that you have to try for yourself.

  • 1 rack beef back ribs
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 bags Cheetos


  • Put a good layer of mustard on both sides of the ribs. Don’t forget the sides. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on the mustard.
  • Crush the Cheetos and push a good amount of it in the mustard. Keep adding crushed Cheetos until you can’t see any mustard.
  • Start up your grill with indirect heat of about 120 to 140ºC 248°F to 284°F and a chunk of smoke wood. Place the coated beef ribs on the grates and close the lid.
  • Smoke the ribs for a couple of hours until the core temperature reaches 96ºC/205°F, and the meat is tender. Check this by poking the meat with the probe of your thermometer or a toothpick. When it goes in and out without much resistance, the ribs are ready.
  • Let the ribs rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing them.
