Espresso Spiced Beef Short Ribs & Root Vegetable Mash - made with our Espresso Spice - Meat & Seafood Rub. For all of you who wonder if the ribs tasted like coffee, they did not. Not. At. All. The espresso adds an incredible element of delicious richness and depth to the dish - to include the gravy / sauce made from pan drippings. A great dish and comfort meal for this very cold weekend!
