Slingshot Short Ribs

Drafting is as much a part of racing as pit stops and wrecks, and although the physics involved in analyzing a car’s aerodynamics can make a casual fan’s eyes glaze over, the way it plays out on race day – aggressive, strategic slingshot passes – is one of the most exciting elements of the sport.

This time on Lance’s Pit Stop, we’re revving our engines for a slingshot with some spicy Asian short ribs. Our recipe is inspired by Korean barbecue, but with a slow-smoked twist. Check it out below:
