This recipe for braised short ribs is a one-two punch of umami flavor. It’s actually a deviation of a braised short rib recipe by Adam Fleischman. It’s super-simple, will make your house smell wonderful, and perfect for serving up to a large number of guests. If you have leftovers, don’t worry, because I’ll be following this recipe up with a wonderful way to use the leftover short rib and braising liquid! If you’ve never tried short rib – it’s a wonderful and inexpensive cut of beef. It’s not very tender, thus the braising, but it is VERY flavorful. I like to get my short rib at Costco, where 3 lbs will only cost me about $25. Most supermarkets will also carry short ribs, but you may have to speak to the butcher to get this particular cut.
