What is braising? What are short ribs? Why are they so flavorful? And how do I make them? In this recipe we will cover it all!
What Is Braising? Braising is a cooking method in which the meat is browned in fat (such as butter or cooking oil), then covered and cooked on low heat for a long time in a small amount of liquid, such as broth, water, wine, or a combination of liquids. - Better Homes & Gardens
What are short ribs? Short ribs are found on menus in many different restaurants, and you can even cook them at home. These ribs come from the beef chuck of an animal, and consist of the ends of the ribs near the breastbone. These narrow cuts of beef are shorter than traditional ribs, so they don’t make for good steak. The meat off of these bones isn’t as tender as the meat of a steak, but it has much more flavor. - Bull and Burbon
Why the flavor? In terms of flavor, short ribs fall somewhere between the flavors of the chuck and the rib cuts. They have a beefy flavor supplemented with rich marbling, making them an ideal comfort food. - Bull and Burbon
