I love cooking braised short rib!! It is a beautiful meal each time and is so full of flavour. Do not be intimidated by this meal, it is so simple to make and most of the time is spent in the oven.

So sit back, enjoy a glass of wine, relax and smell the delicious meal coming your way!

I made sure to serve mine with mashed potatoes. You can always serve it with mashed parsnips, polenta or even brussel sprouts.
