What is it about the mere mention of certain savory foods that can transform a grown man (or woman) into an quivering puddle of desire? Pork belly, Foie gras, short ribs… SHORT RIBS!!! Ooooh, short ribs! Those beautifully marbled, meaty little slabs of beef have the power to bring even the most disciplined among us to our knees.
Short ribs can be prepared in a number of different ways. However, if you want yours to be those meltingly soft, falling-off-the-bone tender kind of short ribs that dreams are made of, you need to cook them so that their connective tissue breaks down in just the right way. And, that means braising, baby!
