Coffee crusted beef short ribs with roasted cauliflower. 

This one is a request, so I was winging it completely!

I seasoned some short ribs with salt, pepper, and the only coffee I had on hand…caramel macchiato. I used about 1 tsp for 4 small pieces. 

Meanwhile, I prepared a head of cauliflower. 

I cut it into steaks, then added some grainy mustard to one side and a spicy mustard to the other side. Then added to a 400 degree oven. 

I also put a baking potato in the microwave with a little water and covered for 6 minutes. 

I chopped an onion and started it on medium high heat with a little EVOO. 

The meat continues to marinate while I cook the sides first. 

The onions caramelized nicely. You can add a little beef stock if needed to prevent sticking.

The potato was almost fully cooked, I chopped it, added some salt and pepper and let it cook with the cauliflower. 

On high heat, start with 2 tbsp of vegetable oil, then sauté the short ribs. I did about 3 minutes on each side. Then deglaze with beef stock and cover for about 2 minutes. Put into a plate and let it rest for a few minutes. 

 Then plate it up. 

It was good, I’m not a coffee lover, but this was tasty and I will make it again. Using flavored coffee was a yummy addition. I did eat the onions too, just forgot the pic. Hunger was motivating me 🙂

Give it a try!
