Servings: 4


  • 3 pounds flanken-cut short ribs
  • 1/4 cup chipotle in adobo
  • 1 cup raspberry freezer jam or your favorite fresh raspberry jam
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup green onion tops finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. cooking oil


  • Combine chipotle in adobo, raspberry jam, minced garlic and lemon juice in a small sauce pan. Cook over medium low heat for about 20 minutes. Add finely chopped green onion tops. Remove from heat to cool.
  • Place half the cooled sauce in a Ziplock bag with the flanken-cut short ribs and marinade at least a couple hours, preferably overnight. Save remaining sauce for basting when you are ready to grill.
  • When ready to grill, add one tbsp. cooking oil to the bag and shake to coat. Grill each side 3-4 minutes, depending on how thick your ribs are, basting with remaining sauce as you cook.
