Flavorful short rib tacos for National BBQ Month: Try the recipe

This National Barbecue Month, make tacos – but not just any tacos. Try delicious short rib tacos from Jonathan Wiener, the executive chef at Agua Caliente Cathedral City in Cathedral City, California.

“Taking a classic cooking technique such as braising meat and transforming it into something popular like tacos is a fun dish to cook,” said Wiener. “A great tip for home cooks making these tacos is to focus on the garnish. You can add any topping you’d like, and you can customize to your guests’ liking.”
