For short ribs: Combine marinade ingredients, and allow meat to marinate. Remove short ribs from marinade. Rub meat with salt and pepper, then sear on all sides. Braise for 2 to 2 ½ hours at 220°F. Cool short ribs, and shred by hand.

To build short rib nachos: Place fried wontons on an 8” plate, achieving as much height as possible. Top wontons with 4 oz. white queso dip. Place short ribs on flat top to reheat and finish with 1 oz. of Asian BBQ sauce. Once heat, place meat on wontons, spreading short rib. Top with roasted corn salsa, then chiffonade romaine.
