Eye Candy: Beef Short Rib with Ramen, Smoked Ham Broth, and Farm Egg

 

Now based in Atlanta, Texas-raised chefs Jonathan Fox and Justin Fox missed their hometown barbecue so much they started their own joint, Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q.

A standout of the night was this smoked beef short rib with chewy ramen noodles and smoked ham broth, all topped with a sinfully oozy farm egg. We've been drooling over this photo since it landed in our inboxes, making this dinner another culinary ‘cue fest we'll certainly remember.
