Anne Burrell’s Favorite Holiday Recipe
“Its one of my favorite winter dishes, specifically for the holidays, because you can get it started, toss it in the oven and in a few hours, you have a spectacularly delicious meal that makes your entire house smell wonderful and inviting. Shortribs aren’t hard to make — you can even start them the day before (and as far as cuts of meat go, they are a great bang for your buck). The dish is so full of flavor that with some minimal effort, you end up with a fantastic tasting dish and everyone thinks you’re a superstar. And the best part — you still get to enjoy the holidays with your family and not get stuck in the kitchen while everyone else is celebrating.”
