Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

November 2, 2016

This is the type of dish that you tend to want to have seconds, thirds, and if you’re a champ, maybe even a fourth round. I could have this for breakfast, I could have this for lunch, I could even have this for a late night munch! Sorry, I was feeling a little Dr. Seuss rhyme and couldn’t help myself…. Anyways, this recipe is one of my all-time favorites and it always manifests itself in a few different ways, but it is perfect for the fall/winter and basically all year round if you’re down for a hearty meal.
