The Bean is a big, bad 2-month-old and is no longer requiring us to hold her 24hrs/day. Alas, my first cooking project of 2014! This was a good’un, Dear Readers (I’m all Bridget Jones in the New Year, apparently).
Inspired by a couple of recipes I found on Pinterest, I decided to try my hand at short ribs and polenta, particularly as the ingredients required are things we typically always have on hand – fresh thyme, red wine, garlic, beef stock, and good Parmesan. Short ribs are also really affordable; I think I bought a pound for around $5.
You can find the recipes here and here. Turns out that short ribs = not so short on awesomeness. Not only was this incredibly easy to make (you don’t even have to babysit the short ribs while they braise), but Mike declared it one of his top 5 meals/meat preparations of all time.
Of. All. Time.
