I made this recipe yesterday, and we were so delighted and full after dinner! They are really rich and there is a lot of fat to drain off, but that's short ribs. I might try other cuts of beef that are easier for me to find and not as fatty. I got the recipe off foodtv and it was a little different. There was no tomato paste (which I remember being there from the tv episode), a fennel bulb, and no mushroom which would be awesome in it. I served it with thick egg noddles. It makes a ton of sauce. There was a lot of prep and cooking before it goes in the oven, but it's so worth it. Thanks for posting the recipe!
