Luscious oven braised short ribs from Mad Hungry makes Sunday dinner painless (marinade whipped together night before or morning of), the house aroma-filled and the bellies full. Steamed broccoli de rape and rice too. But woulda used mashed potatoes or polenta as a first choice but I won’t look a rice-in-the-pantry-gift-horse in the mouth.
What I like about these short ribs is that there is no messy stove top browning, per usual. Basically, just throw the ribs in the pan with the marinade–let it soak in its own deliciousness for as long as possible 4-48 hours. Then pop it in the oven to slowly cook as you do other things. Add potatoes to the pan if you have–or other veg (had some extra random carrots here).
