Beef Short Ribs with Zesty Sauce Recipe at
FOR SAUCE: In a saucepan or large skillet heat oil. Add onions and garlic and sauté 5 minutes or until translucent. Add remaining sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Process in a blender or food processor until smooth. Chill in refrigerator until ready to use or up to 3 weeks.

Make 4 vertical cuts about 1 inch apart in each short rib from top of rib to the bone. Place ribs and 1-1/2 cup sauce in jumbo resealable plastic bag. Close bag and marinate in refrigerator overnight. Chill remaining 1/2 cup sauce.

Remove ribs from bag and discard used sauce. Place ribs in center of cooking grate. Grill 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until tender. Brush with remaining 1/2 cup sauce during last 20 minutes of grilling.

WINE AND BEER RECOMMENDATIONS: The tangier the ribs, the fruitier the red: for this dish, a Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley in California. A golden amber ale that’s heavy on the hops will corral the numerous spices in this dish. Yee haw!

Mistake in recipe???
The header says that this marinade uses two types of vinegar. However, it only shows the balsamic vinegar. Did they mean apple cider vinegar or did they leave out something.
