Please help me create a sauce for my ravioli...

I've got quite a bit of leftover braised short ribs and I'd like to make ravioli stuffed with the shredded meat. I don't know if this helps, but I've got braising liquid (main ingredients: porter and homemade beef/veal stock) left over as well. How should I sauce the ravioli? Thanks!

  1. add cream to the braising liquids and heavily reduce

    1. i'm liking bw's take on it. you could add a dollop of tomato paste and some lemon zest and come out with something magic.

      1. re: appycamper

        mushroom powder to cream....or simple brown butter with your favorite cheese shavings.

      2. All the suggestions sound great, but you probably don't need more than to reduce the liquid a little, and add some butter to it..........and if you do add tomato paste, which is a brilliant idea, just brown it a little first so it's not too raw tasting.
