HOW TO MAKE BRAISED SHORT RIBS!
If you weren’t previously convinced about how simple and tasty braised short ribs maybe, this basic and uncomplicated recipe serves as an ideal intro to the dish. These are the perfect hands-off, make-ahead meal. They are cooked on the stovetop in a big Dutch oven, but they can easily be altered to be cooked in a slow cooker if that is more your style. When buying the ribs, be sure to choose the thickest, meatiest ones you can find since they will shrink significantly after they have been braised.
You need to get on with it as quickly as possible. In my opinion, if you haven’t had beef short ribs before, you are missing out on one of the greatest joys in life—and I’m not exaggerating when I say that. Beef short ribs are similar in taste and texture to the tastiest, exquisite, supple, soft pot roast you can imagine—but the meat is served on a stick for your convenience while eating. The stick is only necessary if the meat is cooked properly; otherwise, the flesh will slip off the bone if you even take a single breath on the bone. Oh, is it ever a pleasure to be here.
