These short ribs fall off the bone, are tender and delicious. A hearty meal that is sure to please.

Step 1: Ingredients

3 Kg (6 lbs) of Short ribs, salt, pepper, olive oil

1/2 Cup coffee
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp ancho chili powder
2 Tbsp honey
2 canned chipotle peppers with 2 Tbsp of the adobo sauce
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 onion, roughly cut
3 cloves of garlic
2 canned chipotle peppers with 2 Tbsp of the adobo sauce
1 Tbsp lime juice

Step 2: SAUCE

Puree coffee, salt, ancho powder, honey, peppers, lime juice, onion and garlic in the blender. Set aside.

Step 3: RIBS 1

Pat ribs dry, then season with salt and pepper

Step 4: RIBS 2

Preheat olive oil in skillet, then brown ribs a few at a time, placing them close together in a roasting pan.

Step 5: RIBS 3

Once the ribs are browned, take the skillet off the heat (to avoid splatters), then pour the sauce in the pan. Bring to a simmer, stirring to deglaze and get all drippings from the pan.
Pour the sauce over the ribs.

Step 6: RIBS 4

Cover with tin foil, then bake at 300 degrees for 3 1/2 hours
Remove the ribs, skim off the fat, then serve the sauce on the side.
Hope you don't mind if I only try the sauce part (being vegan I don't think short ribs would be on my menu). I think the sauce sounds wonderful and I am always looking for new and exciting tasting sauces. I'll admit sometimes vegan foods can be just a bit bland.
Definitely let you know, not sure what I will put it on, but I will be making it! Only changing honey to agave, but hope that doesn't destroy the integrity of it all.
I think it really is about the sauce anyway. I think it tastes great on rice. I hope you enjoy it
look's yummy
I use regular, brewed coffee, but I do make it strong
This coffee you speak of, is it espresso strength or regular strength?
Yum! Definitely going to try this.
This is our family favorite. It tastes wonderful!
