The Leftover Beef Rib:

Once we achieved the ideal smokiness for the beef rib, we ended up with some extra portions. To preserve its freshness, we opted to store the pulled beef rib in an airtight vacuum-sealed bag and then stored it in the freezer for future enjoyment


Preparing the Beef Rib:

To bring back the flavours and tenderness of the smoked beef rib, we defrosted it and reheated it using two different techniques. The initial approach involved gently simmering it in a pot of water for approximately 30 minutes. Alternatively, if you're pressed for time, you can also opt for a quicker microwave method. Both methods effectively bring back the delightful smokiness of the meat."




Assembling the Nachos:

Let's put together our nachos. You'll need corn chips, salsa, pulled beef ribs, cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. Start by laying out the corn chips on a baking sheet, then add layers of pulled beef, salsa, and cheese. Continue this process to create a delectable tower of nachos





Baking the Nachos:

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees Celsius. After arranging the prepared nachos, put them into the preheated oven and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until the cheese melts and takes on a golden brown hue. This stage will meld the flavours harmoniously and bestow the nachos with a wonderfully crispy texture


The Finishing Touch:

After removing the nachos from the oven, it's time to apply the finishing touches. Garnish them with generous scoops of sour cream and guacamole. These creamy elements will harmonize the smoky flavours and introduce a revitalizing twist to the nachos
