Short Ribs

short rib

I made short ribs for Christmas Dinner this year, so I wanted to make sure to share the amazing results.  I first had short ribs about 4 years ago when my step daughter ordered it.  I’ve always been turned off by ribs, but her meal looked really good so I asked for a taste and I loved it.  I couldn’t believe it took me so long to try short ribs.  Since that first taste, I order them every chance I get.
