Coconut Flanken Roast

Melt in your mouth Coconut Flanken Roast. 

When you have meat that’s this amazing, you don’t need all the pomp and circumstance. I know it sounds weird but this literally smells like butter popcorn coming out of the oven. Buttery soft in your mouth, falling-off-the-bone-goodness, with a tiny hint of coconut.

A flanken roast is where short ribs come from. You can usually find a 3- or 5-bone roast from your butcher. It always pays to be good friends with your butcher. My favorite way to cook this type of meat is low and slow for the softest most falling-apart roast you’ll ever eat.
