French Influenced Braised Beef Short Ribs

"I found this recipe in Cooking Enthusiast catalog, under the title of French Influenced. Very tender meat and nice thick sauce. Wonderful flavor. The recipe did call for 2 large sprigs of fresh Rosemary and I opted to use bay leaves instead as I don't care for Rosemary."

    Really good, and I also like the substitution of bay leaf for rosemary. I didn't thicken the sauce, but spooned off the fat, and in hindsight that fat might make some pretty good gravy. Made for Photo Swap.

    This recipe is perfect, my family really enjoyed it for Sunday Supper. The only change made to the recipe was reducing the amount of tomato paste by half; it is just a personal preference. Thanks for posting.

    Delicious. Will definitely be making this again, whenever I see short ribs on sale. I followed the recipe (ingredients and method) to the letter this time. Next time, will do the slow simmer part in the crockpot.
