Slow simmered over low heat to a tender, sweet finish, these short ribs are loosely based on a Korean stew called 'Galbi Jim'. A shot of coffee adds tannins to breakdown the fibers of the meat and make the sauce rich and dark. Cook them on the stove or pop them in the slow cooker and come home to dinner.
This isn't a complicated dish. It's simple, hardworking food. Beef short ribs are an underrated cut of meat. At first glace they're just short, fatty, bone-in chunks of beef. But treat them with respect and a bit of love and you have rich, flavorful, tender fall-off-the-bone, beefy goodness.
