Step 1

Add ground coffee, brown sugar, sea salt, onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper to food processor and pulse until all dry seasoning has blended together. Feel free to adjust seasonings to your taste palate.

Step 2

Season short ribs with coffee seasoning blend, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 hours. Remove from refrigeration 30 min before preparing.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.

Step 4

Preheat cast iron skillet to medium-high heat on stove-top.

Step 5

Lightly oil skillet with vegetable oil, and place ribs, bone side up. Get a good and quick sear and turn to next side until all sides have locked in the internal flavoring.

Step 6

Next add ½ stick of unsalted butter, Bourbon, elephant garlic, ½ cup of cold brewed coffee into skillet.

Step 7

Cover skillet with aluminum foil then place into preheated oven and braise for 30 minutes.

Step 8

Next, reduce oven temperature to 350°F degrees.

Step 9

Use a spoon or ladle to braise beef with juices and continue cooking for another 30 minutes. Use a meat thermometer (inserted at the thickest section) until internal temperature reaches 130° for medium-rare (cook additional 1 hour longer if you're seeking more doneness).

Step 10

Once ribs are cooked to your likeness, remove from skillet and allow the meat to rest. Do not cut, poke or prod for 10 minutes. This gives the meat time to settle and you'll enjoy the flavors that settle.

Step 11

While the ribs are resting, deglaze skillet with butter and 1 (one) cup of cold brew coffee. When you're ready to plate, drizzle over short ribs.

Step 12

Serve and enjoy!
