Game On! Braised Beef Short Ribs with Coffee/Ginger Marinade

By Chris Capell

Shortly after nailing down the final formula for Game On!, Chris’ first test cook was short ribs. Hearty and rich, these braised beef short ribs have a depth of flavor that is enhanced with a simple marinade including coffee and ginger. The beef is browned on the grill, then braised in a pan for the remainder of the cook. Hope you enjoy!
