DISH PICK: Short Ribs at Patio850

Lick You Plate Good!

One of my favorite of Chef Patrick’s dishes is his Short Ribs. Chef Patrick says it is one of his most ordered Entrées and after reading this Dish Pick you will want to taste it for yourself.

Don’t get this dish confused with traditional American barbecue or even Asian BBQ. Chef Patrick’s Short Ribs are true comfort food where the short ribs become boneless from 12 hours of braising giving them a tenderness from a melting pot of flavors that only slow prolonged cooking can achieve. The juices from the meat and herbs mix together slowly like a low simmering pot roast that your grandma used to make.

Take that rich goodness and then combine it with Chef Patrick’s house made BBQ sauce and you have you something special. This BBQ sauce is not what you will get in a barbecue joint, where the sauces are heavier in taste and sticky. This red tomato based sauce does have a sweet tang to it, but it isn’t overpowering and sappy sweet like a Southern belle. When the BBQ sauce first hits your tongue, it is the slight sweetness that you taste, and then ba’ bam a little spicy, ginger-garlic and heat sticks to your taste buds and you think to yourself, “I wonder if anyone would notice if I like my plate?!”

Served on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes and I do mean creamy. If you think Chef Patrick crams that much taste into something with no calories, then I do have some water front property I want to sell you in Arizona. Chef Patrick melts a blend of 5 different cheeses, plus cream cheese, goat spread, add a little milk and a dash salt and pepper and let me tell you potatoes have never tasted so good. 

Chef Patrick then adds fresh spinach to give the dish some acidity, and bite offsetting the richness giving a nicely balanced entrée. And to make this dish even better, pair it with a nice red wine outside under the stars with good friends, and you’ve got yourself a little slice of heaven.
