Weather: 32 degrees, not a cloud
What I’m listening to: hens clucking outside the window
I was at the market, scanning the meat department for things on sale, when my gaze met a 3-pound pack of boneless beef short ribs. Oh. Just about every cooking show I’ve ever watched has featured beef short ribs- slow-cooked, braised, fork-tender, juicy. And yet, I had never attempted to make them at home. My dutch oven was calling their name, and at the sale price, they had to be mine. Now with this recipe, they can be yours, too.
It’s simple, hearty home-cooking at its finest. You get that long-cooked depth of flavor – the earthiness from the vegetables and the acidity and sweetness from the tomatoes and balsamic. Whip up some garlic mashed potatoes and invite some friends over. It’s time for a comfort food feast.
