Chef Josh Grinker of Williamsburg’s modern Chinese restaurant, Kings County Imperial, has created incredible shortribs. This particular dish utilizes the Chinese “red cooking” style where a slow braise of soy sauce, cinnamon, star anise and other aromatics impart a red color to the dish. The color red symbolizes happiness and good fortune.
