  • 1 cup Modelo beer
  • 2 cups favorite salsa
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup diced poblano pepper
  • Drizzle vegetable oil
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 29oz can of hominy
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup diced white onion
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • Salt
  • Cilantro to garnish

Directions

Start by getting a dutch oven very hot and adding a touch of oil to the pan. Season beef short ribs with salt and pepper then sear to get a nice crust on the meat, then remove meat from the pan. Once the meat is removed add the onion, pepper, garlic, oregano and salt and pepper then saute until the veggies start to soften. Once they soften, deglaze the pan with the Modelo and scrape the good bits from the bottom of the pan. Next, add your meat back to the skillet and add your salsa and beef stock. Cover with a lid and place in a 300 degree oven 1 ½ - 2 ½ hours until the meat is tender.

While the meat is in the oven braising, take a pad of butter and melt it down then add your onion and garlic and cook until it starts to soften. Next, add your can of strained hominy and heavy cream and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Once it has simmered, take the contents of the pot and place in a blender and blend until relatively smooth. If the mixture is too thick add more cream, if it is too thin return blended mixture to the pan and heat to reduce liquid.

To plate, drop grits into a bowl and top with tender short ribs, a little of the cooking liquid and some cilantro to garnish.

    Questions: the picture shows less than half of one rib and I can’t tell if it is still bone-in or not. How did it get that way? Is it meat taken off the bone or do I need a band saw before I cook them? Do I cook the slab or divide the bones? The hominy mixture is the “grits? yes?” So it should be the consistency of creamy grits?


Did ya try it? Let us know how it went!
