Toasted Oak Grill & Market, Novi, Michigan
Winter has hit Michigan, the snow is here and it’s cold outside. So that means only one thing to us. COMFORT FOOD!
Our most popular winter dish here at Toasted Oak is our Faygo Root Beer® braised Short Rib. A perfect combination of a top quality cut of meat and the Detroit areas original soft drink company!
We DO cook Michigan after all!
It’s a 3 day preparation process. We firstly cure to allow the marinade to soak well into the meat. Then we soak in the root beer marinade. Finally, low and slow braising on the third day!
The result is a fall off the bone, tender, succulent chunk of braised short rib that melts in your mouth! Underneath is a bed of whipped potatoes. And finally, the short rib is drizzled with a reduction of the braising liquid.
This dish is so good, that our regular guests ask why it isn’t on our summer menu!
It pairs very well with a glass of our Michigan made, Founders Porter, from the Founders Brewery in Grand Rapids, or a nice big red! AND… the bone sure makes a great trophy!
