Sweet and Spicy Braised Short Ribs
- 6 lbs short ribs, excess fat trimmed
- 3 dried ancho chiles
- 2 C boiling water
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1 C tomato sauce
- 3 T canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- 1/2 C brown sugar
- 4 T molasses
- 2 T honey
- 1 t peppercorns
- 1 t cumin seeds
- 4 whole cloves
- 1 1/2 C water
- 2 T canola oil
- 6 slices jalapeno bacon, chopped
- 1 cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
- salt and pepper
In a large dutch over or heavy oven proof pot, heat oil. Season short ribs with salt and pepper and brown ribs. I did this in batches so I didn't over crowd the pan. Transfer to platter and hold. In same pot, cook bacon until crisp and transfer to platter to hold. Remove all but 2 T of fat from the same pot, stir in chile puree and bring to a boil. Return ribs and bacon to the pot and add the broken cinnamon stick. Cover and place in preheated oven to braise - about 3 hours.
To serve, skim as much fat off the top of the sauce and plate with mashed potatoes or grits, with lots of sauce!
Looks wonderful! Thanks for sharing!
I love short ribs I literally order them almost overtime I see them on the menu. These look amazing.
Sweet and spicy is probably the best flavour combination in food. The ribs look so tender and flavoursome.
