Loved this. We were on a w/e RV trip-had steaks the night before, so made this philly-rito the next day using left over sliced steak. I did reduce the cheese-used mexican style shredded cheese with a few cheddar slices. Sauce was awesome. I added a few pickled jalapenos to the sauce.Husband is still talking about the sandwich."

Reviewed Red Chile Short Rib Tacos

Jul 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

3 lbs is not enough for 6 people. I did 4-4.5 lbs. I used 32 oz stock as well.
I had very little liquid left after I took the ribs out, so pureed the peppers with some stock, added a bit more port and poured it over the shredded meat.
Labor intensive, but everyone loved it.
