Unveiling the Wonder of Rib Fingers

Have you ever heard of rib fingers? These delectable morsels, also known as “entrecôte fingers” or “Etzba’ot Etrecote” in Israel, are the thin pieces of meat extracted from between the ribs. Picture each piece about the size of a finger, brimming with juicy goodness. Unlike traditional ribs, you won’t find any bones here, just a handful of intercostal muscles that you can easily set aside. With rib fingers, you’ll enjoy the perfect combination of tender meat and convenience, making them ideal for snacking.

Crafting Flavorful Rib Fingers

Preparing rib fingers is a breeze. Start by rinsing off the meat and gently patting it dry with a paper towel. Now, let’s dive into the magic of the dry rub. For an explosion of flavors, we’ll combine Israeli Chicken Grill Seasoning (trust us on this one!), smoked paprika, and brown sugar. You can easily find the chicken rub seasoning mix in the Mediterranean section of your local supermarket, such as the popular “Pereg” brand. And let’s not forget about smoked paprika, a game-changer that elevates the taste to new heights. Say goodbye to the ordinary paprika because smoked paprika is here to stay!

Sprinkle the heavenly rub over the rib fingers and massage the spices into each piece, coating them evenly. Next, drizzle some date honey over the meat, a beloved Israeli delicacy that not only tenderizes the meat but also adds sweetness, color, and a hint of caramelization. Work that honey into the rib fingers, and voila, your prep work is complete!

The Art of Slow Cooking

Now, let’s create a steamy environment to coax the meat into tender perfection. Place a piece of parchment paper on a large rectangle of foil and wrap it tightly around the rib fingers. For an extra layer of tenderness, wrap the entire package in foil again, creating a triple-layered seal. Trust us, this method ensures that the rib fingers emerge from the oven juicy and tender, ready to melt in your mouth!
