Braised short ribs are one of my favorite things in the world. If it is on a menu, generally that’s what I am having. I love all things braised beef, especially in the cooler weather, rich and delicious. It’s really a one pot meal, and makes a wonderful sauce all on its own, while it looks like there is a lot of work, really this is one of the easiest things to cook. A little front-end work, then a lot of waiting around while it cooks.
