One of my favorite holiday traditions is the annual dinner we organize for the same small group of friends each week. Until Christmas. It has something magical about it at the time: it’s the end of the holiday, before it becomes time for the whole family, and it provides for the main festivities. Every year, we all bring our A-game and show up ready to let go of our hair and open a bottle of bubbles. In fact, two years ago at this party I learned to stomach my first bottle of champagne, but that’s a story from another era.
Since I’m more interested in resting with my friends than being around the kitchen all night, I’ve come to trust some of the recipes that seem special enough for the holidays, but that can be made completely in advance, and given by themselves. great batch cooking crowd. From the various recipes I’ve made over the years, it’s a sweet and spicy recipe cooked with short ribs that has become almost a staple on my menu.
Why do I love these short ribs? Oh, let the paths count. For starters, they are a cut of meat that feels like a short rib made for serving the crowd. Instead of having to cut a large portion of burnt on the table, they are divided into separate pieces that can be easily taken out on a plate, ready to eat. They are also tender luxuries, with a wealth that is so perfect for the holidays. I like to serve these easy short ribs with a creamy side (think mashed potatoes, polenta, or cauliflower puree) so that their velvety sauce is soaked and the red wine infusion gives it a sweet taste to everything.
Perhaps the best thing about this sweet and spicy recipe for cooked short ribs is that it can be made almost entirely in advance; in fact, it’s very best when it’s done the day before! The flavors deepen within a few hours, and all you have to do is slowly warm them up at the time of eating. Speaking of which, I made these short ribs on me from start to finish KitchenAid® 48 “smart commercial style gas generator. As you know, we installed it as part of it refresh our kitchen design last year, and a year later, I’m enjoying the opportunity for creativity in the kitchen with my trusted side.
This bouquet is beautiful, of course, you ask me all the time who makes it on Insta !, but you may not know that the range is available in 9 selected colors to suit many styles. Although I kept the classic with stainless steel, there is a part of me that wonders what it would look like. Milk smoothie… For my next kitchen, maybe? His professional-level performance is really noticeable on holiday, when I’m cooking potatoes at the same time, fry the sage leaves, and letting my short ribs end up in the oven became nice and slow. Thanks to the range, I have complete control of all my temperature settings, so the end result is just perfection.
To make things even easier for myself, I enlist the help of my butcher, asking me to cut short boned “side-style” beef ribs into two-inch pieces. That way, there is no extra butchery for me to make at home before these guys are seasoned and burned. Generally, I distribute 2 parts of these pieces to each person, give or take according to their appetite. I think you’ll like this easy method of toasting short ribs that require little to nothing but cutting some vegetables and throwing them all in the pot. The end result is a very tasty, tender bone marrow and intended to become a patron of your holiday encounters in the years to come.
As sweet as these short ribs come straight out of the oven, it’s the chimichurria that guards and overflows them. I release a bunch of this sauce all the time, and store it in the fridge to soak meat, fish, and even pasta. Made with cilantro, parsley, garlic and vinegar, it has this acidic punch that keeps the whole dish from being heavy.
And, as we eat with our first eyes, I like to finish this dish with some decorations that give it color, flavor and freshness. Before serving, I sprinkle more fresh herbs on top, then toss on a thin red onion and peel a lemon.
