Grilled Short Ribs with Sesame-Chipotle Romesco
(Adapted from recipe courtesy of BonAppetit.com, June 2015)
Makes 6 servings
2/3 cup unsalted, roasted almonds
2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
2 cups roasted red peppers from a jar, drained
3 canned chipotle pepper, in adobo, seeded
4 Tbsp sherry vinegar
3 lbs boneless beef short ribs (roughly 1 1/2-inch-thick)
Freshly ground black pepper
Pulse almonds and sesame seeds in a food processor until finely chopped. Add red peppers, chiles and vinegar and puree until well-combined; season romesco with salt.
Prepare grill for medium-high direct grilling. Season ribs with salt and pepper and toss with 2/3 cup of the romesco. Set remaining romesco aside for serving. Grill the ribs, turning occasionally, until charred on all sides, about 8-10 minutes for medium-rare.
Let ribs rest for 10 minutes. Slice against the grain and serve with the reserved romesco.
