My all-time favorite recipe for braised short ribs -- Short Ribs Provencale on Epicurious. Amazing flavor and simple to prepare. The dish is finished with Nicoise olives which add a little something special.
TB, please check over on the Home Cooking board...this is a favorite topic of many and a poster by the name of "jfood" has an excellent recipe, for starters. You are sure to find a great recipe on that board!
