Short Rib Spiedino

Short Rib Spiedino | Ritual Chocolate | Kelly Whitaker

Chef Kelly Whitaker has put a twist on the Italian spiedino. Literally translated to "skewer", Chef Whitaker takes perfectly sous vide short rib meat and cooks them on a skewer in his wood fired oven at Basta in Boulder, Co. While cooking the meat, Whitaker shows you how to craft a sweet and spicy chocolate sauce with Ritual Chocolate to drizzle over these flavor-packed skewers.
