Author Notes: Flanken cut short ribs are wonderful for a hands on feast. They are cheap and quick and very easy to cook. The flavor profile of this recipe is similar to bbq that I enjoyed in Argentina.

CARNE ASADA

  • 8 pounds flanken cut short ribs, cut 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup PORCINI RUB
  • 4 limes, cut in half
  1. Ask you butcher to cut the flanken ribs about 1/2 inch thick
  2. Make a smooth paste of the peeled garlic cloves using a mortar and pestle. Using your hands, smear the garlic paste all over the ribs.
  3. Sprinkle Porcini rub over the ribs and smear into the garlic paste which will act like glue.
  4. Prepare a medium hot grill. Grill the ribs about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Watch that the ribs are a little charred but not burned. (they cook fast!)
  5. Also grill the limes, cut side down.
  6. Serve with a half lime to squeeze over the ribs.
