Chipolte Coffee Pork…

21 06 2010

It was a quiet weekend at our place.. Ken had to play his “Red Dead Redemption” game.. and it seemed appropriate to make a southwestern dinner … but who am I kidding, I just saw this recipe and wanted to make it ! This is super easy, and while i think it could have used a bit of something something, I am at a loss as to what.

The recipe calls for pork ribs, and while I am not a fan of eating off a bone (no jokes please), I did have pork cutlets in the freezer that worked quite well. In reality, any meat would do, as this is about slowing roasting in a dutch oven in all this liquid-y goodness.

This is from a segment on Steve & Chris..

Chipolte Coffee Pork (or Chicken..)
1 medium onion, quartered
3 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo plus 2 teaspoons adobo sauce
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (i used the s.f. stuff)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

3 teaspoons salt
6 lb beef short ribs or
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup brewed coffee & 1.5 cups water

Combine the first five ingredients in a blender and put aside.

heat skillet with a bit of oil and brown the outside of the meat you are using.. about 5 minutes in total. Place meat in a large oven safe pan or pot (if the pot doesnt have a lid, just use foil)

throw in the blender mixture into the pan, and heat. Add coffee and water and bring up to a boil. Let it reduce for 15 minutes and throw juices over meat. I cut up some carrot in there as well.. to make it sweet, but also i like squishy carrots.

At this point, i needed to head out for the day, so i threw the whole thing into the fridge with instructions that at 4pm to put in the oven for 2 hours at 350 C. This probably could also be done in a crockpot as well. The liquid should come up to half of the meat (not drown it), and the container should be covered.

So moist and tender, this was some good eats… I paired it with a coleslaw !
