Update: I would say a mediocre dinner. Short ribs were delicious. Sauce was grape juicy.
It’s cold outside.
Flurries have taunted us with hopes of snow.
Cold days just like this one call for a special warm winter meal.
I’ve got braised beef short ribs cooking in the oven.
But I’m skeptical.
1. I’ve never cooked with short ribs before.
(thank you to the Whole Foods butcher who made them boneless and trimmed the fat for me!)
2. Recipe called for 6 garlic cloves. It didn’t say to mince, crush, or chop. I’m thinking it was accidently omitted.
3. I used grape juice instead of wine, I don’t like meat cooked in wine.
So we will see.
