Great short rib recipes?

Hello -

Making dinner for two featuring short ribs. My wife is fond of Chinese cooking, and I like Middle Eastern, but anything really good would be welcome.

  1. The Balthazar recipe is amazing - I'll try to find if I've posted a variation of it.

      Mmm! Second Balthazar! I am just in reducing my sauce right now...made the dish on Monday and let it ruminate for a couple of days before serving. Added a bit of balsamic. Gorgeous with roasted garlic mash. The Balthazar recipe ROCKS.

    2. Here's a link to my absolutely favorite short ribs recipe - it's French, though, not Chinese or Middle Eastern, sorry. But it's darned good.

      1. This is great recipe, and easy too -- although not Chinese or Middle Eastern.

          OMG, we love this one! It's the weirdest combination of ingredients, so I'd never tell anyone what was in it, but we've impressed many a guest with those short ribs. And it has to be the easiest recipe ever.

            I agree, it's an amazing recipe. I have actually made them a bit Asian, using Chinese five-spice and a touch of hoisin sauce instead of the chili sauce. Served with Asian-style sides, like stir-fried bok choy, and it's a really lovely presentation.

            I can't recommend this recipe enough. It is sooooo good. Been the hit of many a dinner party!

              I've made it several times. While my attemts are feeble compared to the great Chef Boulud's, I agree that my guests have always absolutely raved about this dish. (BTW, I usually start the meal with Daniel's Scallops in Black Tie. Can you tell I worship the man?) :)

          2. My favorite these days is the Susanne Goin recipe for short ribs with horseradish sauce - uses balsamic vinegar, wine, onions, etc. It was posted here several times in the recent past so I bet you could search and find it.

            A bit of work but worth every second.

              Mine too! I've made several different short rib recipes and that one is the BEST.
