Sage And Beer Braised Beef Short Ribs Over Cheese
Dredged in flour & seared, the ribs are velvety tender little morsels layered w/ flavor from the beer, beef stock,& fresh herbs. If you have homemade stock it makes all the difference but canned also works. Peppers, onion, & beef are beautiful together.
Forsake mashed potatoes & try cheese tortellini. A slab of beer bread and a cold brew rounds out this meal perfectly!
