Follow these cooking methods/directions:

  1. Combine Worcestershire sauce, brewed coffee, pineapple juice, soy sauce, vegetable oil, gingerroot, garlic and pepper to your taste in a large sealable freezer bag. Pierce short ribs all over with a fork. Add ribs to bag, massaging to coat; seal and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours.

  2. Discard marinade from ribs. Pat ribs dry with paper towel. Grill in a closed preheated barbecue over medium-high heat (400°F/200°C) for 8 to 10 minutes, turning twice or more or until cooked to medium-rare doneness (145°F/63°C) at the most. Garnish with sliced green onions, if desired.
