Swedish Braised Short Ribs
Recipe Courtesy of Reasor's
- Heat Dutch oven until very hot; add butter, then meat. Cook over high heat until meat is very well browned on all sides.
- Add onion; with a fork, push down into fat around meat; cook a minute or so, or until browned. Now add salt, pepper, 1 tsp. sugar, allspice, bay leaves, hot water. Simmer, covered, 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until fork-tender.
- Remove meat to heated platter and keep hot. Skim about 1/4 cup fat from liquid in Dutch oven. Stir cold water into flour; slowly add, stirring, to liquid; cook until thickened. Stir in cream and 1 tsp. stuaf; bring to boil once; pour over meat; serve at once.
Especially nice with buttered carrots, green beans, and dill potatoes. (make parsley potatoes, adding snipped fresh dill instead of parsley)
