Short Ribs Braised in Coffee Ancho Chile Sauce
250 mins (prep 40, cooking 210)
14 ingredients

I'm giving this 5 stars because DH went nuts over this dish. I thought it OK but it didn't "wow" me. I substituted a 14 ounce can of beef broth for the "ancho chili soaking water" (at the price of beef ribs I wasn't about to take a chance that the water would be bitter). The second time I made this dish I also added some country style boneless ribs which is simply chuck roast cut in 1" wide strips. I brown the ribs very well in order to try and cook out as much fat as possible then drain off all extra fat. I also like to refrigerate the whole pot and then skim off as much congealed fat as possible. The way DH likes this I'm sure it will be a regular in our house.
