Luscious oven braised short ribs from Mad Hungry makes Sunday dinner painless (marinade whipped together night before or morning of), the house aroma-filled and the bellies full. Steamed broccoli de rape and rice too. But woulda used mashed potatoes or polenta as a first choice but I won't look a rice-in-the-pantry-gift-horse in the mouth.
What I like about these short ribs is that there is no messy stove top browning, per usual. Basically, just throw the ribs in the pan with the marinade--let it soak in its own deliciousness for as long as possible 4-48 hours. Then pop it in the oven to slowly cook as you do other things. Add potatoes to the pan if you have--or other veg (had some extra random carrots here).
