Coffee-Braised Short Ribs
4 pounds bone-in beef short ribs
1-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 pounds small red potatoes, cut in half
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
1 whole garlic bulb, cloves separated, peeled and slightly crushed
4 cups strong brewed coffee
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons butter
Sprinkle ribs with 1 teaspoon salt, coriander and pepper. In a large skillet, brown ribs in oil in batches. Using tongs, transfer ribs to a 6-qt. slow cooker. Add potatoes and onion.
Add broth to the skillet, stirring to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in garlic and remaining salt; add to slow cooker. Pour coffee over top. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender.
Remove ribs and potatoes to a serving platter; keep warm. Strain cooking juices into a small saucepan; skim fat. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in vinegar. Remove from the heat; whisk in butter. Serve with ribs and potatoes. Yield: 8 servings.
