Sultry Spiced Short Ribs

Slow cooked short ribs are the perfect vehicle for spices and the secret ingredient for this recipe is black cardamom. Black cardamom is a milder cousin of the better known variety and has a deep smoky, earthy flavor profile. It pairs perfectly with the sweetness of star anise and the piquant flavors of cinnamon and peppercorns to give these short ribs a sultry and mysterious flavor.
