I had some short ribs languishing in the back of my freezer. Upon packing up the old house, I saw them and thought "Huh. Short Ribs. I've never cooked these before. I'm going to have to cook them." (Because I have massive kitchen OCD and they would have driven me insane. Just knowing that they were in my freezer. Mocking me.)
I found this awesome recipe and modified it some (I added mushrooms, because: hello, mushrooms, and I had to bake it in a casserole and not a Dutch Oven because I don't have a Dutch Oven...YET) and it.was.incredible.
Here's what you need:
*Olive Oil (not pictured, sigh)
*Cooking Wine (or just plain ole wine. Red and white both work...as long as they are not too sweet. I used red cooking wine)
Mashed potatoes (with lots of dill) to serve over
Here's what you do:
*Crisp up your bacon. Like really, crisp it up. We're looking for it to render out fat. No, this is not a health conscious meal. It's a fancy meal.
*Put your short ribs in a casserole dish, then pour the sauce over them. Top with the crisped up bacon.
*Bake at 350 for an hour and a half, then reduce the temperature to 325 for another half an hour.
*Serve over mashed potatoes
The meat should be falling off the bone. Yuuuum.
