READY IN: 4hrs 45mins
Recipe by Normaone

Although this may seem like a lengthy process, all of the work is done in advance. The end result is delicious comfort food. I serve garlic mashed potatoes and whatever vege is fresh at the time.

This is very much like a recipe of mine. (One I am known for). The only difference is that I start by panfrying the shortribs rather than baking them,;I don't use the tomatoes; and I often cook these longer or even overnight, though overnight is really too long. These things probably don't make much difference. The one thing that I do that I think really adds to the dish is putting in about a cup of those dried sweetened cranberries. It makes the beef broth really special.
