Valentines Braised Short Ribs

edited February 2014 in EggHead Forum
I was thinking all week that I was going to make filet and lobster till I went into the freezer and found these short ribs. I made a batch a few years ago before I was an egg owner and they blew me away. I hijacked @griffin recipe on his website http://griffinsgrub.wordpress.com/2012/02/15/braised-short-ribs-in-a-red-wine-sauce-on-creamy-polenta/ but did some minor changes. I started my cook yesterday and seaerd the ribs with DP Red Eye. I added all ingredient that he called out and let it cook for a few hours. I took it off the egg and let it cool down and put it in my fridge overnight.

Started today around 3pm and got the egg up to 325, I added 3 cans of beef broth and put it on indirect. Took it off around 530 and pulled the meat out and then puréed all the veggies. I added some mushrooms and put the meat and sauce back in the pot. Let it cook for another 30 min while I prepped everything else. 
  Poured a bottle of 2008 Groth Cabernet and enjoyed. The wife was very pleased. And yes I did use my LC on this cook and broke the knob when I dropped the lid in the kitchen. That's 12 Bucks

    Stacking those asparagras kept you from getting chopped! Looks great!

    Thanks bud, I actually steamed them tonight. The wife was angry when she saw me steaming them and after the first bite she apologized. Been along time since I steamed anything, and used no seasoning at all. It was actually really nice to taste the vegetable as it is meant to be.

    Nice cook! And beautiful plating too. I put a Le Creuset knob on my Tramontina DO so it could feel fancy :)
