Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Sprinkle the short rib with salt, pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of the espresso. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a saute pan over high heat. Sear the rib on all sides to golden brown. Remove the rib to an oven-safe pan.

Add the bacon to the hot pan and cook until lightly browned. Add the onions and continue to cook until the onions begin to brown. Add the chicken stock, brown sugar and the remaining 1 tablespoon espresso, and then bring to a boil. Add the bacon mixture to the short rib, then cover and cook for about 3 hours.

Remove from the oven. Carefully remove the rib from the pan and pour the rest of the contents into a blender and puree. Strain the puree into a bowl, add the ketchup, and whisk together to make the BBQ sauce.

In a separate bowl, combine the mustard greens, apple, cabbage and fennel. Mix the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, the vinegar, honey, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and a pinch of salt. Dress the slaw with the dressing and mix well.

To plate, place the grits and the slaw side by side, add the rib to the top of the grits and dress liberally with the BBQ sauce.

Notes

This recipe was provided by a chef, restaurant or culinary professional and may have been scaled down from a bulk recipe. The Food Network Kitchens have not tested it for home use and therefore cannot make any representation as to the results.

Notes

When blending hot liquids, first let cool for 5 minutes or so, then transfer to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open; this will prevent the vacuum effect that creates heat explosions. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters and pulse until smooth.
