This one time, we had a Master Griller event at Key Biscayne, FL (we always love going out there). After the event was over, we had some leftover Flanken Style Short ribs we needed to take back to the shop. It shoudl have come as no surprise that it was never going to make it back. Our beef has a habit of never coming back after it leaves our place of business. It always gets used and eaten by someone.
That said, our very own German at least had the decency to document the process of making this amazing Short Rib sandwich which is quite simple but EXTREMELY tasty.
How To Make A Short Rib Sandwich
Short Rib Sandwich Ingredients
- Flanken Short Ribs (2 ribs per sandwich, 3 if you want to be generous)
- Maldon Salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- High quality olive oil
- Ciaba bread
Step 1: Grill the Short Ribs
Warm up the grill on high heat, you can use gas or charcoal. Either will do just fine. Do not overcook the flanken short ribs, they are better medium... medium-well at most.
Step 2: Cut the short rib
Cut the short rib in small strips with a knife. You can cut around the bone. The fat on our short ribs is quite tasty, but if you do not like it, now is the time to remove it.
Step 3: Pepper and Olive Oil
Add freshly ground pepper and high quality olive oil to the beef. Be generous, this will add a lot of flavor. By now, you should be warming up the bread!
Step 4: Serve!
Serve in your prefered bread. We prefer ciabatta bread, but it will be just as tasty in your favorite bread. We have also tried french baguette and a variety or artisanal breads.
