Braised Short Ribs Recipe
If you’re in need of comfort food that warms the house and fills it with delicious smells, these braised short ribs are exactly what you’re looking for.
What are Short Ribs
Short ribs are a cut of beef taken from the brisket, chuck, plate, or rib areas of beef cattle. Short ribs consist of a short portion of the rib bone, which is overlain by meat which varies in thickness. There are two major types of cuts when referring to short ribs. First, the flanken is cut across the bone and leaves the bone just 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5.1 cm) in length. Second, the English is cut parallel to the bone and leaves the bone up to 6 inches (15 cm) in length.
What is Braising
Braising (from the French word, “braiser”) is a combination of two cooking methods. First, you sear the meat at a high temperature. Second, in a covered pot at a lower temperature while sitting in some (variable) amount of liquid (adding flavor) the meat is further cooked until it’s time to serve.
