I am writing this post from sunny Boca Raton Florida where I am currently escaping the never ending winter in Calgary. It is wonderful here. Sunshine everyday, running every morning on the beach. Isn’t life just better with a beach? Seriously my mental health would be so much better if I lived on the ocean I swear. That should be one of my life’s goals: live next to a beach. There I said it. All of you reading this can hold me to that one day (hopefully).
I probably won’t be blogging too much while I am here but I have a few recipes saved up that I should be posting. But don’t hold me to that. I am on vacation mode after all. And I haven’t had a vacation since August. That is 7 whole months of living in the hospital. You can only imagine how badly my body was craving some natural vitamin D.
I am pretty sure I have mentioned my love of ribs on this blog before, but for those of you who missed it or are new to my blog (welcome) I have to say that ribs are one of my favourite foods! Usually I gravitate to pork ribs but I thought I would change it up and share a beef short rib recipe with you. This one is easy to make too, although the ribs do require a couple hours of cooking time. I hope you like it!
Tender Rosemary Beef Short RIbs
These do require a few hours to be tender, but they are so worth the wait!
Preheat your oven to 325 F
Cut your ribs between each bone to create individual sized ribs
Place a large frying pan on medium heat on the stove and cook bacon fat, onions and tomatoes for a couple minutes, until tomatoes start to break down
In the same pan as your onions and tomatoes add the short ribs and braise for 1-2 minutes per side
Place the contents of the saucepan and the remaining ingredients into a roasting pan (lid on) and cook at 325F for 2 1/2 hours. You can stir these a couple times if you like.
Serve and enjoy!
Make sure and use a large roaster or Dutch oven so these can braise nicely in the oven.
Well it is time for me to get back to the sunshine! I am on a mission to get some major tan lines before I get back. It is a mission I take very seriously.
Please let me know if you make these and what you think! And as always please feel free to contact me with any questions!
