For my Birthday, Selma got me something that I’ve been eyeing for a very long time. No Le Creuset set is complete without their flagship 5.5 qt. Round French Oven. Best girlfriend ever.
I was so excited to use this that I spent an entire day at work looking for the perfect recipe for my baby’s first culinary debut (I don’t do much at work…). I decided that Guinness-Braised Short Ribs would be the perfect recipe to try. It’s super easy to prep and basically cooks itself. This french oven is perfect for turning cheap/tough cuts of meat into tender fall-off-the-bone meals.
Serve the short ribs over a bed of creamy mashed potatoes and prepare for a serious food coma.
This was honestly one of the best meals I’ve made thus far. It was incredibly easy to make and was actually very inexpensive. I think the priciest part of the whole meal was the Guinness. Needless to say, I will be making this again very soon.
The recipe I used was as follows:
- 5 lbs lean beef short ribs
- freshly ground black pepper
- olive oil
- Baby carrots
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 3 ribs of celery, diced
- 2 cans Guinness stout
- 1 Tbls. fresh garlic
- 5 fresh bay leaves
Serves roughly 4 people
