    Barb Gertz's Note:

    Relish each step of preparing coffee-and chile-braised short ribs; searing a brown crust on the ribs before they bake adds a deep carmelized flavor; sauteing the aromatics( onions, peppers, garlic) in the drippings makes the sauce base really fragant. The ancho chile powder is available in the mexican spice section of most supermarkets and at latin markets.

      Very good short ribs which we enjoyed with corn bread and Cheesy Green Chile Corn Cheesy Green Chile Corn. The only subsitution I made was using basil instead of oregano (which I was out of) with good results. Thanks for sharing!
